Rise of the Trumpocrats! Ex-Dems swarm to GOP nominee

'Donald has said he's going to do something to bring the jobs back'

Much attention is given to the Republican figures publicly turning their backs on Donald Trump, but there is also an active movement of Democrats enthusiastically backing the GOP nominee because they are convinced nothing will change if Hillary Clinton becomes president.

It’s called the Trumpocrats PAC. Executive Director Christian Rickers was a strong Bernie Sanders supporter during the Democratic Party primaries and determined that he would abandon the Democrats this year if his candidate did not prevail.

“Early on, I decided if he was not going to win the primary that I was not going to support Hillary Clinton,” Rickers told WND and Radio America. “She is a career politician.”

Rickers said just seeing the economic decline in his own community convinced him that Hillary Clinton was the wrong choice to lead the country for the next four years.

“I came from a town with 25 manufacturing facilities 20 years ago, and now it has one. Nobody is more responsible for that than the Clintons and the trade policies they’ve advocated over the years. We’ve just learned that Ford is leaving town and going to Mexico and taking all the jobs there, Carrier air conditioning and Maytag. When is this going to stop?” Rickers asked.

There are many Democrats in Maryland who because of political reasons register as Democrats but are really blue collar conservatives. This base will be voting for Trump. That is the elephant in the room.

8:10 is right. Many of us are working class people who know that just because (D) is after some politician's name it doesn't mean that it's a good choice, or that the politician will be working for our benefit. Too often we've seen those politicians take, take, take, even from the people they've vowed and were elected to help. We even have examples of that in our own little town.

Hillary says that the ignorant voter is the key to her success.
Don't be one of them!

Bernie ran against a stacked deck as has been proven with the email fallout. How could he sell out and support her? I am not a libertarian by any stretch and do not support his ideals but anyone against the Clinton establishment is marked. Bernie supporters should be outraged that their (on average) $42 contributions were akin to spitting in the wind.

I was a registered Dem when I lived in Florida 12 years, as there was nobody to vote for in the R primaries. So, I was able to vote fro the weakest most unpopular Dems in the primaries so my "Good Guy" would have lousy competition.

It's a game. You play it to WIN.
