Many political experts say Prince William and Loudoun Counties will be key in deciding who will be our next President.

Prince William County voted 53% in favor of President Obama in 2008, the same percentage he received in national results. Prince William and Loudoun County are both seen as early indicators of where the national vote will go.

If the President wins these counties like he did last time, it’s very likely he’ll win the state and possibly the election.

“I'd like to think that a lot of things that we do would be based on a lot of good thinking, prayer, lot of seeking great wisdom,” said Mike Trivett of Loudoun County. “And if the rest of the nation is following that’d be great.”

In Loudoun County in 2008, Obama received nearly 60% of the votes cast.
