Trump dominates county voting

LISBON — To say Columbiana County is Trump Country would be an understatement.

Donald Trump’s win on election day was so complete that he beat Hillary Clinton in every single city (3), village (6) and township (18) in the county on his way to a 68.1 percent to 26.7 percent victory, according to final figures released this past week by the county elections board.

Trump won 11,293 to 5,749 in cities and villages, and 20,383 to 6,683 in townships.

Trump even won easily in usually Democratic strongholds, such as East Liverpool, Leetonia and Wellsville, and it was even worse in the townships, where he outpolled Clinton in some instances by 4-1 and 5-1 in one instance.

He also carried 88 of the 89 precincts. The only precinct that went for Clinton was in Wellsville but even that was close– 93 to 89.
