A small fleet of black cars sits parked inside of Paul Smith's garage in Plymouth, Pennsylvania. Most are SUVs that he uses to drive his customers around Luzerne County, the Poconos or even to Manhattan, about two-and-half hours away.
His small business is his lifeblood, and it's what informs the 42-year-old when he's in the voting booth, he explained after turning down the Howard Stern show blaring on the radio. .
"I worry about the economy as a whole. I worry about any kind of terrorism-related event because travel slows down big time," he said, while driving from Plymouth to Wilkes-Barre, the county seat located in the northeastern part of the state. "People don't want to travel when things are scary, and I don't blame them. That slows down my business."

Smith previously supported Barack Obama, who carried Luzerne County both times he ran. But the small-business owner who employs a handful of contract workers was ready for a change in 2016 after eight years of a Democrat who promised a shakeup that Smith says never came.
Smith admitted that Trump sometimes make him nervous — but ultimately he thinks the president might do well.
"He's a little more abrasive than I would be in some cases, but I don't think he's wrong," Smith said. "There has been a lot of BS, a lot of waste and ridiculousness over many, many years for nothing."
NBC News recently went to Luzerne County to speak to voters who helped deliver this county and this crucial swing state to Trump to hear about how they think he is doing after 100 days on the job. Do the economically struggling county's voters, largely concerned with jobs, think the fledgling president is on track to deliver on his campaign promises?
"I feel he's doing poorly because of flip-flopping on all the promises he made," said Chris Race, who works at the Liberty Tax Service in Wilkes-Barre and who voted for Trump. "He promised to drain the swamp, put Hillary in prison, and repeal Obamacare. He hasn't done those things."
Others, however, are giving the new president more time.
"I voted for Trump, and I think he's doing pretty good," said Alan Rosenbaum, who works with learning disabled children in Ashley, Penn. "We went to see him when he was here during the campaign one year ago. He spoke very well, very direct. He is pro Israel, so that is good. It's in the Bible."
Some Luzerne County residents also are quick to blame Congress, not Trump, for Washington's ills.
"I'd like to see Trump work with some of those moderate Democrats and find a solution to healthcare and all that," said Rick Morelli, a 46-year-old software developer who lives in Hazleton. "The problem is these guys on the far right and the far left. You got to keep those guys out and work with the people in the middle."
Considered a solid blue bulwark for nearly 20 years, 58 percent of voters in Luzerne County shirked tradition last year and voted for Trump — a move that helped flip Pennsylvania for the Republican.
