How do you feel about President-elect Trump? Chances are, it may have a lot to do with where you live.

We spoke with Trump supporters, who called themselves members of the so-called "Silent Majority" about what kind of future they see.

Some said the support for Donald Trump was there this year, even among voters in rural towns who didn't talk about it much, or display a Trump sign in their front lawn.

And while the people we talked to said sometimes they wouldn't bother to vote, this year they did, including 53 percent of white women voting for Trump.

“He says things he shouldn't say, then he goes back and does his research and says,
‘Oops, I did a mistake, that's not really what i mean,’ but, he's real,” said Tanya Jones, a Trump supporter.

Exit polling shows Clinton turned out less Hispanic and Black voters than President Obama did in 2012.
