Greetings from red and well-educated Hamilton County, Indiana: Not totally into this Trump's America thing

Hamilton County is among the most reliably Republican areas of the state, and the majority voted for Trump. Still, the white-collar suburban affluent demographics made it a place that was cool to the tone of Trump's campaign and he underperformed compared with past GOP candidates. 
Consider this: Four years ago, Mitt Romney won Hamilton County with 66 percent of the vote. Trump carried 56 percent. The drop in support clearly was aimed at Trump. Other Republicans did better. Attorney General Curtis Hill won Hamilton County with 69 percent. U.S. Rep. Susan Brooks won 67 percent. Candidates for the General Assembly carried more than 70 percent.
