Donald Trump has a stronghold of support at Morrison School.The presidential hopeful won a mock election there Tuesday, easily thumping Hillary Clinton.Voting was conducted after a raucous assembly in the school gym where speeches were given by students portraying all four presidential candidates -- Trump, Clinton, Gary Johnson and Jill Stein. The crowd was tame for Johnson of the Libertarian Party and for Stein of the Green Party, but erupted during the other two speeches.“We’ve been doing this for years and this was the rowdiest we’ve ever been,” said Morrison history teacher Teresa Prater who organized the mock election. “I guess it reflects the overall atmosphere.”All students, teachers and parents at the assembly were allowed to vote.
