Akron, a dreary gray city, has been hit by the heroin plague and I have no trouble imagining white voters giving Trump a chance. Coventry is a poor WWC town south of Akron. Hudson, the largest so named city in the country, is a New England style bourgeois clocktower city that went from the most Republican city in the county to having the largest Democratic swing.

Peninsula is the home of the Cuyahoga Falls National Park. It always struck me as an old fashioned little country town, which is why I'm surprised that it voted easily to the left of Cuyahoga Falls in 2012. Maybe it's the Vermont to Hudson's Connecticut. Twinsburg also surprises me as I've been told it's conservative and religious, although it does have a black community. I know little about the west part of the county and Northfield is vaguely poor.

Barberton's swing is quite brutal and shows Trump winning over WWC voters. It voted further right than Stow (a normal suburb), which is quite something.
