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

Trump didn’t have such success everywhere, though. In the Indy metro area, Trump underperformed in two suburban counties. 
In Hamilton County, Trump won 56 percent to 37 percent, with 6 percent voting for Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson or write-in candidates. Four years ago, Romney pulled 66 percent. 
In Boone County, Trump won 60 percent to 31 percent, with 8 percent voting for Johnson or write-in candidates. Romney won 68 percent four years ago.
