I am not surprised at all. Dems are mainly switching to vote for Trump not against him.
Obama has done everything humanly possible to tear America apart and move us to a crisis point, a tipping point over which he would like nothing better than to push America into the chasm of no return.
The campaign is moving into states that are Donald Trump country. Until now, the should have been Ted Cruz southern stronghold went for Trump. Michigan, Ohio, Pensylvania and the rust belt are really Trump country. We just need a win in Ohio.
About 1,000 Democrats in Mahoning County so far have switched their party affiliation to Republican with election officials saying several did it to vote for Donald Trump, the GOP presidential front-runner.
“We are seeing something this election cycle I’ve never seen before to this degree,” said board Chairman Mark Munroe, who’s also the county Republican chairman. “Every day I take phone calls or get voice messages from people saying they’ve been Democrats all their life and they’ve had it. They want to vote for Donald Trump. I’m surprised at the volume of inquiries we’re getting. It’s remarkable.”
A number of Democrats taking a Republican ballot when voting early at the board “say they want to vote for Trump,” said Joyce Kale-Pesta, Mahoning County Board of Elections director.
About 7,000 Mahoning County voters have cast early votes. Early voting started Feb. 17 and ends March 14, the day before the primary.
Of those 7,000, about 14 percent were Democrats who voted Republican, Kale-Pesta said. That’s about 1,000 so far.
The percentage of Democrats switching parties will grow even more, said board Vice Chairman David Betras, who also is the county Democratic chairman.
And it doesn’t concern Betras.
“I knew Donald Trump’s message would resonate with blue-collar Democrats,” he said. “But once they learn about his record – besides him being anti-trade – they will change their minds in the general election. I assure you that come the general election, voters will vote our way once we tell the story of Donald Trump. The more chaos created in the Republican primary, the better Democrats will do in the general election.”
People across the country are more involved in this election than any I can recall in my lifetime – except perhaps re Reagan.
This is because we all know that this is the most important election of our lifetime and if we don’t get Trump in there and stop Cruz, Rubio or even Kasich – not to mention God forbid, She who never saw a lie she didn’t want to try Hillary, that it will spell the end of the country. And no, that is not an exaggeration.
