In McDowell County -- the poorest county of West Virginia , people were open to, even preferred, a real alternative to Trump and Clinton.
The Guardians West Coast bureau chief paid a quick visit to McDowell County, West Virginia in October to film a video for the news organizations website titled Why the poorest county in West Virginia has faith in Trump.
The video in fact did a great job of showing how working people have been abandoned when they can no longer contribute to the profits of corporate America. What it totally failed to show was that McDowell people were open to, even preferred, a real alternative to Trump and Clinton.
