In the heyday in the early 50s, the Logan County had nearly 80,000 residents. It remains now only half.

Logan, with its 1700 inhabitants, is one of the cities in the United States that voted most heavily for Donald Trump in the Republican primaries: over 90% of support.

Overall, West Virginia is a Republican stronghold where the Republican candidate has, at last count, a comfortable lead of ten points over his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.

This important support for Donald Trump is in large part by the economic decline in this county.
