>> The town of Portsmouth, in the all important swing state of Ohio, is Trump country. Even though he lost the Ohio primary to Governor John Kasich, Donald Trump won Scioto County, where jobs have left and factories have closed. I spoke with a group of roughly two dozen residents of Portsmouth at the town's Holiday Inn, and most of them believe that Trump is the one who can revive the economy.
00:00:26
>> He is a business man, he knows what it takes to be successful in business.>> I think he stands the best chance of getting jobs going.>> He is the man of business. I think he's been there, he's done that, he's communicated with people, he's communicated with people from all walks of life.
00:00:43
>> The way things are going, I'm never going to be able to retire, we're regulated to death. I don't know if there's going to be less regulations under Trump, but I'm willing to bet that maybe it will not get worse.>> But not everyone is convinced that Trump's the man for the job.
00:01:02
>> I don't like the divisiveness, I don't like the rhetoric that comes from Trump. I think if Trump wins there's gonna be disappointment that there's not the easy answer and things aren't easy as just saying. Hey I'm just gonna magically make everything again.>> I like to know what is like to stand up for your candidate in this environment.
00:01:23
>> With this one, especially with a lot of my friends that I have, it's been tearing a lot of people apart and making them go very far in choosing sides. And I don't think that these are the best two people that we could have chosen to represent the country.
00:01:37
>> I think a lot of young people are seeing that. It's more of I'm voting as a Republican, or I'm voting as a Democrat, and I think that that isn't that kind of sync as a first time voter that you have to be thrown into this chaos.>> Seriously, are these two of the best candidates you could have chosen from the best country.
00:01:58
>> One thing everyone agreed on in the group was that whoever wins, life will go on on November 9th. Whoever gets elected, we all need to get behind. We might all have personal preferences, but in the end as a country we need to come together, one voice.
