Never-Trumper strategist launches #ILefttheGOP campaign just in time for Senate impeachment votes

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.

 

But plenty of other reasons came up - from endless war to religious hypocrisy to…Hollywood films.
