Thanks for the link. Trump may actually lose a few more counties up in North Alabama but I still doubt he loses the state. As I said earlier, as a non-government worker with no family or friends that work for the government either I see very little difference in my life. And the links you provided paint a dire picture for a few areas on Alabama but I think most areas are not feeling the sting that much. Unless the effects of this shutdown start to affect more people I think Trump still locks in Alabama and most of the other states like Alabama. The Democratic candidate will honestly just be competing for Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, Iowa, etc.
