West Virginia’s Trump-iest County grades the president 10 months in

BURLINGTON, W. Va. — It’s two o’clock in the afternoon on a sunny Saturday in late September, and I’m standing in a grassy field with Dale, a white man in his late 70s.

I’m at the Apple Harvest Festival in Burlington, W. Va. To our left, a vendor is hawking T-shirts with images of Confederate flags and high-powered weapons printed on them. “Ban idiots not guns,” one shirt declares. In the background are the acoustic strums and picks of fiddles, banjos and mandolins.

But my attention is fixed on Dale, who’s holding forth on the virtues of Donald Trump.

“I’ll tell you what,” Dale says. “President Trump, and I prayed to God that he would be elected, he’s for all the right things. I mean, he was against abortion, same-sex marriages, sex changes and all that corrupt stuff that’s not biblical at all. I mean, you know, God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for these homosexuals back in those days. So, it’s a sin.”
