Why Previous Democrats and Hillary Supporters Are Now Voting For Trump

Despite the positive Biden polling, one trend that keeps edging in President Donald Trump’s favor is “Never Trump” Republicans and Hillary supporters reversing their 2016 positions by voting for him on election day.

Caitlin Singleton of Wisconsin is one of them.

Speaking with “Fox & Friends,” Singleton said that she is 90% in favor of Trump after casting her vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016.

“I did vote for Hillary in 2016 and have ever since I was able to vote, voted Democrat. This time around I am leaning toward Trump strongly. I say 90 percent leading toward Trump. I don’t think there is much that will change my mind between now and tomorrow,” she said on Monday.

As to why she suddenly flipped, Singleton said that the president’s policies pushed her into looking “at him more closely,” as reported by Fox News.

“From where I was last year to now is a complete 180 and I think it shocked a lot of people,” Singleton said.

Singleton hails from Middleton, Wisconsin, where people are under tremendous “pressure to vote blue,” which further lends credence to the idea of the “secret Trump voter.”

“There is a lot of pressure to vote blue in the workplace, in the personal life, and so, I think that is what is making me wait till the last minute to vote, but, mostly his policies that have affected my family in a good way. Over the last four years, we benefited greatly,” Singleton said.

The concept of the “Secret Trump Voter” has taken on a whole new level of meaning in recent days, with pollsters and commentators alike waiting in anticipation to see if the reality will sway the election in Trump’s favor.

Sam DeMarco, a Republican councilman for Pennsylvania’s Allegheny County, told Byron York of the Washington Examiner that he knows at least a dozen Democrats that will secretly cast their vote for Trump.

“I’m an elected official,” DeMarco said. “I have had at least a dozen Democratic elected officials tell me that they are voting for Trump. They say they don’t like where their party has gone, so far to the left, but as Democratic elected officials they can’t come out and say it.”

“Look at the unions,” DeMarco continued. “When they endorse, they apply a lot of pressure on their guys to fall in line and support the candidate. That’s not happening now. They said they’ve given up on trying to get their guys to vote Biden. I can’t guess at the number, but if it’s in law enforcement, the building and trade unions, and oil and gas, these folks are voting Trump.”

Keith Thurner, business manager of the International Union of Operating Engineers Local 95, told The Washington Post that membership voting plans are split.

“I would say it’s a 50-50 split in membership of who’s supporting who,” he said. “Even though International has endorsed Joe Biden, we have stepped back from that. We let the membership know what the International does. But there’s so many undecideds or folks on either side.”

  1. Any democrat from about 4 to years ago and before do not want what the Democratic Party is now. The democrats are German socialists of the 1930’s. If unchecked we will see the rise of the fourth Reich(fascism).

  2. THE ANATOMY OF DEMOCRACY

    Definition of “democracy” from Dictionary.com:
    Government by the people; a form of government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised directly by them or by their elected agents under a free electoral system
    https://www.dictionary.com/browse/democracy

    We, the People must demand that we receive objective and truthful information to allow us to enjoy a functional democracy as it is defined.

    Without TRUTH, our efforts at democracy fall within the genre of “garbage in, garbage out” and our efforts at achieving a functional democracy will fail. Thus, any intentional impediment to truth must be eliminated and considered problematic and conceivably treasonous.

    If it were rational and logical to conclude that our goal is a functional democracy, it appears that an intentional and material lie or the withholding of truth by a Senator or Representative should be punished by expulsion and criminal penalties.

    Our forefathers who wrote the Constitution designed a system of checks and balances by establishing the three branches of government; legislative, executive, and judicial.

    Codified within the First Amendment of the Constitution is that Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech or of the press. This portion of the First Amendment enables the press or anyone else to present objective and truthful observations of our government. The First Amendment does not imply that the press or anyone is protected from untruthful information.

    Whereas the press has the freedom to present the results of observations and investigations, it cannot present knowingly false information and, if it were to do so, would be subject to financial and criminal penalties. The withholding of exculpatory information would be subject to the same penalties. The critical tools which must be utilized by the press are objectivity and truth.

    Large entities which are conduits and disseminators of information should be characterized as utilities, i.e., not proprietary.

    Based upon the above, it should be considered that these entities, Twitter, Google, and Facebook are treasonous. An effective Congress should assess substantial fines and demand an immediate reversal of the withholding of the New York Post article.

    The key elements of a functional democracy are objectivity and truthfulness.
