First, it examines the backstory of the three major characters, because Trump's election did not just happen because of current conditions. It was a product of years of disillusionment. Second, it looks at the reasons that Trump appealed to voters during the primaries and the general election. Third, it discusses how voters feel about his first year in office. This paper first examines the conditions that exist in Rockbridge County itself. It, too, looks at the backstory of the three major characters. Then it examines in much more detail the major issues Trump voters were looking to be addressed. Lastly, it looks at how the Trump administration has addressed these concerns.
