Therefore, the views of Vigo County voters can be a `prophetic ball` for the US presidential election on November 3.

Terry grows corn and soybeans and raises two dozen cows on his farm in the southwest part of the county.

Vigo County also has an unusual voting history.

Delich said she immigrated from Yugoslavia to the United States 27 years ago, after her husband was killed in the Bosnian war.

`The most important thing is that Mr. Trump loves this country,` she said.

`I came here with nothing, not knowing any English. Now I have two restaurants and a cafe. I work 16-17 hours a day and I love it,` she said.
