‘I Won’t Vote for Him Again,’ Say Republicans Disgusted With Trump

The downward spiral that is the reelection campaign of Donald Trump is swirling the dregs of the political sewer. His approval ratings are near their all-time lows. He is losing in every recent poll (including Fox News) to his Democratic nemesis, Joe Biden. His Republican confederates are increasingly worried more about their own declining prospects than about maintaining the cult-like obedience that Trump demands of them.

Insiders in the Trump camp are well aware of these warning signs. They are frantically trying to rein in Trump’s worst impulses. But that’s a lost cause. Trump cannot be coached on the intricacies of civility or leadership because they are foreign concepts to him. He has lived his whole life with just one objective, which is to pursue only that which benefits him or harms his perceived enemies.

In light of that, Trump has been engaging in conduct that is increasingly bizarre and repulsive. He is accusing MSNBC host Joe Scarborough of murder. He is advocating prison for President Obama. He continues to brag about his response to the coronavirus that has now taken the lives of more than 100,000 Americans. And while a pandemic is still spreading, Trump is obsessed with Twitter having the audacity to fact-check his flagrant lies.

This is the sort of behavior that one would expect from an acutely disturbed individual with malignant narcissistic tendencies. In other words, someone exactly like Trump. And it is why he is losing support among his natural base of Republican voters. That partisan weakness is now being mined on behalf of Americans who have had enough of Trump’s embarrassing and dangerous antics:

“A new project to encourage Republicans to support former Vice President Joe Biden over President Donald Trump has launched a $10 million ad campaign targeting GOP-leaning voters in top swing states. The initiative, called Republican Voters Against Trump, has produced multiple ads featuring disaffected GOP voters who say they are not voting for Trump. […]

“I voted for Donald Trump in 2016, but I won’t vote for him again,” says Jay, a Pennsylvania voter who recorded one of nearly 100 videos featured on the project’s website.”

These disaffected voters are the tip of the iceberg. Many polls show that Republicans have unfavorable opinions of Trump’s demeanor, his tweeting, his border wall, his economic mismanagement, his bigotry, his foreign policies, and his tragically negligent and incompetent response to the COVID-19 pandemic. To name a few.

Republican Voters Against Trump is planning to put their ads on in the swing states of Michigan, Pennsylvania, Florida, Wisconsin, North Carolina, and Arizona. Their stories can have a particular resonance with those voters who tipped the 2016 electoral college to Trump. Folks like “Sarah” from Pennsylvania articulate a relatable narrative saying that Trump “says he puts America first, but it’s clear he only knows how to put Trump first.” And then there’s Jack from Michigan:

These messages, along with at least 100 others, are available on the Republican Voters Against Trump website. Let’s hope Trump doesn’t find out about it or he will launch a Twitter tirade blasting every one of them as “radical liberals, “haters,” “fake news plants,” and “enemies of the people.” Then again, that will only inspire hundreds more to join. So feel free to tweet this to Trump.

He’s mentally unstable and unfit to be president. I blame the GOP for letting him continue with his lunacy. If they sack him now, they may be able to salvage an election win. But they won’t.

Hopefully they won’t be like Susan “Traitor” Collins.

They voted for this piece of crap the first time. What is wrong with these people? Oh just now, they’re disgusted with him. What about the kids in cages? How about the pussy grabbing? How about the embarrassing us every single time he’s allowed out in public on a World stage? How about the pandemic non response that’s cost 104,000 lives? I have no use for any of these people, then or now, & blame them & people like them for the deaths of all of these people. They are hateful bigoted ignorant people. I hope the pandemic has cost… Read more »

The GOP has its fingerprints all over this. They flooded the courts with judges who cannot deny everything the white nationals demand from them.

How can anyone NOT BE DISGUSTED With TRUMP ? He’s poked his nose into everything , but what he’s supposed to do . This jerk writes his name on a order , and holds it up like a child , to show he’s written it . He’s small minded and petty , lashing out at anyone that doesn’t like him . No other president has ever done that ( got into fights ) , with unimportant people. Women especially. He can’t keep his eye on the political ball , and now when he makes a speech , he’s stumbling ,… Read more »
