Trump even won Allegheny County, Pa. where John Kasich was born, along with every other county in each of the 5 states in April 2016's Acela corridor primaries-The Hill, April 2016

In 2016 "Acela Corridor" primaries Trump won every county in all 5 northeast states-- with landslides of more than 30 percentage points over his rivals, a week after his dominating performance in New York state (also a northeast state):

4/27/16, "Trump wins every county in 'Acela primaries'," The Hill, Jesse Byrnes

"Donald Trump won every county on Tuesday night
in the five Northeastern states that held primaries, sweeping up more delegates in his quest to lock up the GOP nomination.

Trump won each county in Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Connecticut and Rhode Island, including Pennsylvania's Allegheny County, where rival  John Kasich was born.

Trump also won every congressional district in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware to pick up more delegates. He won all but six districts in Connecticut and one in Rhode Island, which Kasich took.

The decisive win moved Trump closer to the GOP presidential nomination, which requires a candidate to win 1,237 delegates nationally."...

"He (Trump) won among the affluent and college-educated as well as with blue-collar voters and those with no more than a high school education."...

4/27/16, "Donald Trump Sweeps 5 States; Hillary Clinton takes 4," New York Times, Healy, Martin 

"Mr. Trump had the more convincing performance on Tuesday: He swept all five primaries (Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Rhode Island) winning landslides of more than 30 percentage points over his rivals, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and Gov. John Kasich of Ohio....He received more than half the vote in every state....The broad support for Mr. Trump spanned some of the dividing lines that have characterized the Republican race until now: He won among the affluent and college-educated as well as with blue-collar voters and those with no more than a high school education, according to exit polls....Mr. Trump’s advantage across all five states was so forbidding that Mr. Cruz abandoned the Northeast entirely on Saturday....Not only did Mr. Trump have significant prospects for a substantial delegate haul Tuesday, a week after his dominating performance in New York, he also had the opportunity to send a clear message to party leaders and other Republicans that resistance to his nomination is futile."...

Washington Post says Ohio is actually a racist Southern state:

 Oct. 4, 2016 Washington Post article figured out Trump's appeal in Ohio: It's really a Southern state (lazy racists and hicks): 

"Though Ohio was in the union during the civil war, this region is culturally Southern. Most here migrated from Kentucky or Tennessee in search of good-paying factory jobs—or their parents did. Driving around town, I spotted a Confederate flag with a middle finger superimposed in the middle. Both of that man’s neighbors had Trump signs in their yards."... 

(Note: The person with the Confederate flag did NOT have a Trump sign in his yard---but his neighbors did--so there you go!) 

10/4/16, "The Daily 202: Want to know why Trump’s winning Ohio? Drink a beer with ‘the deplorables’ in Boehner’s old district." Washington Post, James Hohmann, Middletown, Ohio
