Paladino's district is especially notable; several of these neighborhoods are (hanging on as) white ethnic enclaves with strong nativist tendencies as they see themselves being overwhelmed by Asian immigrants and families from Flushing proper. They are traditionally religious and mostly conservative. Of interest will be the splits in Bay Terrace and Douglaston/Little Neck, as they may give you a sense of the response to the Israel/Hamas War (same for some of the Coop building complexes in North Flushing).

On edit: I guess my point is that I am seeing waaaaay more energy and pressure for Paladino than I have ever seen from conservative friends about anything.
