At the very most, just 23 Trump Tower residents voted for Donald Trump

Donald Trump resoundingly won the New York State Republican Primary. His building? Not so much.

The precinct that is home to the candidate and Trump Tower recorded 23 votes for Trump, 13 for John Kasich and 8 for Ted Cruz according to election results from the Associated Press reported by the New York Times.

Trump Tower occupies about one third of a single block of the nine-block precinct.

The eponymous building has 238 units. 12 are listed for rent and 22 are up for sale according to StreetEasy. Quartz is unable to immediately determine how many registered voters live in the building nor how many are registered Republicans—a requirement for casting a vote in the contest.

In the Democratic vote, the precinct reported 67 votes for Hillary Clinton and 19 for Bernie Sanders.

Of course, some Trump Tower residents’ vote might have nothing to do with politics.
