LOUISBURG, KS (KCTV) -

Donald Trump supporters in Missouri and Kansas say they're ready for a change, and they think the businessman turned presidential nominee is it.

Miami County, KS favored Trump by 67-percent of the vote, and supporters say they're thrilled. For many, they say Trump won them over for his stance on job creation and the economy.

Some supporters say recent tensions in the country secured their Trump vote further.

"The last eight years, I've seen a lot of negativity toward race relations and Obamacare. I would like to see more a positive spin. I think with Donald, we'll get that," Louisburg resident Michael Gabauer said.

Among the issues most important to people in Louisburg are the future Supreme Court justices, the economy and the pro-life/pro-choice debate.

We asked voters what they think of the future presidents past remarks, many found offensive. Specifically about women.. here's what they had to say.

"He spoke exactly how he felt. He's not hiding anything. There's a lot of people out there who speak like that, but it's not OK for him," Louisburg resident Judy Wood said.

Trump took 65-percent of the vote in Cass County, MO. Some of those voters say they simply didn't like how politics has functioned recently.

We got a similar reaction in Miami County, where the president-elect took 67 percent of the vote.

"I didn't like the way the government has been going the past eight years. So I decided to jump on the bandwagon and vote Republican," Peculiar resident Hollie Blake said.

The county with the highest amount of Trump supporters in the area was Linn County where he took 79-percent of the vote.
