SUSSEX COUNTY, Del. - Donald Trump will become the 45th President of the United States, causing a range of emotions across the country and in Sussex County.

"I thought it was a stunning surprise," said Kenny Schnabel, who lives in Lewes and voted for Clinton. "Overall I felt he was too unpredictable and erratic."

According to the Sussex County Board of Elections, Trump won Sussex County, getting over 62,000 votes compared to Clinton's 39,000. Maureen Smith from Rehoboth said she voted for Trump, despite not agreeing with his behavior all the time.

"I voted for him because I am ready for a change," she said."I think he does have some good ideas and can make some good changes."

Joe Paul from Lewes also voted for Trump. He says it's because of the President-Elect's policies.

"He's going to get the economy going again. He's going to stop this illegal immigration that's ruining our country," Paul said. "And he's going to repeal Obamacare-- which are all the things I want him to do."

Joyce Koeneman from Rehoboth says she doesn't understand how Trump won, but is cautiously optimistic. 

"I'm hoping he rises to the occasion," she says.

Schnabel agrees.

"I'm optimistic that he'll act presidential."
