Trump outdid Romney with druggies and alcoholics

Rural Blog - Trump over-performed Romney most in places with high substance-abuse mortality and suicide rates Donald Trump improved the Republican presidential vote "in counties with the highest drug, alcohol and suicide mortality rates," says a study by rural sociologist and demographer Shannon Monnat of Penn State, which compared Trump's vote with that of Mitt Romney in 2012. "Much of this relationship is accounted for by economic distress and the proportion of working-class residents," Monnat writes.
