Leslie County, population 11,310 in southeastern Kentucky, is Ground Zero for Trump Country.

In 2016, some 89.4 percent of voters there cast ballots for Trump, the highest percentage of any county in that state and one of the largest in the nation. About one-third live below the federal poverty level. Some 97 percent of residents are white.
