Disaffected ex-Republicans are sharing their stories on social media as the seemingly-unbreakable two-party duopoly approaches peak unpopularity with American voters with less than a year to go before the 2020 election.
The hashtag #ILefttheGOP was trending on Monday as self-described former Republicans shared what made them exit party ranks - whether to join the Democrats, or to vote independently. It was created by former Republican strategist Cheri Jacobus, who left the party after a disastrous encounter with the president’s 2016 campaign and has been a strident “never-Trumper" ever since.
Perhaps predictably, many cited US President Donald Trump as their reason for leaving the party.
#ILeftTheGOP I left after the first Rep. Debate of the 2016 season where everyone was trashing Planned Parenthood & that Trump was even allowed onstage was disgusting to me. I’m ashamed I ever voted Republican - they were never in line w/ my values.— Angela David (@stlmama2tweets) January 27, 2020
#ILeftTheGOP after 20+ years after the GOP revealed they were all in for Trump at the Republican convention.I can’t support a man who is morally & ethically bankrupt. I sure as hell won’t support a party who chooses to enable him.— ThisMayNotEndWell (@peabodypress) January 27, 2020
#ILeftTheGOP in the early 2000's. After the Patriot Act, the Iraq War, and a dozen other things under Bush/Cheney, my conscience was shaken.I don't really feel that I left them so much as they have left our nation falling apart.This year, we need a rebuilder.#YangGang— Andrew Yang's Hologram
