St. Louis Voters Get Real About the 2016 Election


Yesterday, Republicans didn't just win in Missouri -- they crushed it, taking the governor's seat, the attorney general's office and holding on to a hard-fought Senate too. And oh yeah ... that orange-face guy won too. It wasn't the outcome city voters wanted -- Trump won just 15 percent of the vote inside St. Louis city limits -- and it came as a surprise to many.

So what were St. Louis area voters thinking as they cast their ballots, before those results came in? Photographer Theo Welling talked to voters from south county to north city itself to get their thoughts on what matters and why they voted the way they did.
