With the 2012 Republican Presidential Convention starting today, here's an interesting map showing the percentage of Republican voters in New York City neighborhoods including Roosevelt Island.
According to the map 14.7% of registered voters living in the southern portion (62 of 421 registered voters), 9.3% of registered voters living in the middle (87 of 939 registered voters) and 11.2 % living in the northern portion (38 of 340 registered voters) of Roosevelt Island are Republicans.
