This year, new congressional districts were drawn in all 50 states, but virtually nowhere has the process been as divisive or significant as in New York. A Democratic lawmaker in this state tried to even the playing field in their favor before a Republican lawsuit and court ruling made the state’s map for the next ten years more neutral. The new lines already gave Democrats trouble in the primaries this summer, and they might do so again in the crucial midterm elections in November.

Hallets Point and Old Astoria, Queens

The population of this Queens neighborhood is roughly 18,900.

White and Hispanic populations make up the two biggest racial or ethnic groups.

By a margin of 63 points, Joseph R. Biden Jr. received the most votes in this area during the 2020 presidential election.

The district in which this neighborhood is located has a substantially different shape than it did in the past.

In 2020, Mr. Biden won the previous district by 69 points;

He would have won by 56 points if the election had taken place in the new district.

Vote margin by precinct in the 2020 election

Long-time representative of the 12th Congressional District, Carolyn B. Maloney, lives on the Upper East Side, which is connected to some of Manhattan’s wealthiest and whitest neighborhoods by the East River. As a result of the court’s decision to combine central Manhattan into a single seat and make districts in the city more compact, this neighborhood will now be joined with Northwest Queens, which includes most of Astoria, and parts of the Bronx. Compared to the 14th District that Old Astoria had been voting in, the new one is significantly less wealthy, more liberal, and more Hispanic.

The current Democrat in this district, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is running for re-election in the upcoming midterm elections.

Republican contender Tina Forte is also running.

The Cook Political Report’s race ratings show that Ms. Ocasio-Cortez is likely to win.
