Mapping Midterm Political Donations

With less than two weeks to go before the midterm elections CNN has published an interactive map which allows you to see how much money the Democrats and the Republicans have received in political donations in each zip code area.

The CNN interactive map, How much money is your zip code giving to Republicans and Democrats?, shows that the Republicans are loved in Texas. Four of the top ten zip code areas which have donated the most money to the Republicans are in Texas. Support for the Democrats also seems to have a strong geographical element. Twelve out of the top 25 zip code areas donating money to the Democrats are in California. 

If you click on a zip code area's marker on the map you can view the total amount of political donations given to both the political parties in that area.
