Nash County, NC — a National Microcosm — Routinely Swings Politically

NPR: Nash County, NC, county seat Nashville, close to I-95 near the city of Rocky Mount, “lives on a balance beam. In 2008, it went for John McCain over Barack Obama. In 2012, Obama narrowly beat Mitt Romney in Nash County. In 2016, it was Trump by fewer than 100 votes.” So it’s important to check from time to time into this swing county in a swing state and take the political temperature, as the county may represent a microcosm. Voters who supported Trump have decidedly mixed feelings about him.
