The liberal media would like you to believe that Donald Trump is so outspoken and brash in his defense of America, that some traditional Republicans might vote for Hillary Clinton instead.
However, anyone who attempted the Trump Rolling Thunder rally near the White House in Washington, D.C. knows that’s not true.
The rally, which gathered at the Lincoln Memorial, made it clear that many of these motorcycling veterans are Democrats.
As Newsmax’s John Gizzi reports, they are switching parties because Trump is needed to clean up the mess caused by 8 years of President Barack Obama in the White House.
Many among Rolling Thunder, in fact, were Democrats and registered independents who may be casting their vote for a Republican for the first time in years.
“I’m a Democrat and I’m voting for Trump,” U.S. Army veteran Roger Rollins of Clarksburg, West Virginia told me.
When I asked whom he voted for in ’12, Rollins shot back: “I sure didn’t vote for that black guy in the White House. I didn’t like either of the Bushes, and I don’t want Hillary Clinton. I don’t trust her at all.”
He later admitted to voting for her husband, Bill.
The West Virginian, who also said he plans to vote for Democrat Jim Justice for governor of his state, explained that he felt Obama “killed the coal business” and engaged in “too much s*** overseas.”
Trump, Rollins feels, “will straighten things like this out.”
Bill Medina, a self-employed builder and former defense plant employee from Gainesville, Virginia, agreed.
“Trump is a billionaire, and no one is going to buy him,” said Medina, who voted for Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton and, as a four-year-old in 1960, saw John F. Kennedy at a rally as he sat on his father’s shoulders, “The economy needs to operate differently so we won’t lose jobs. Trump understands this. And he’ll balance the budget so there is money to protect our shores.”
Another biker made it clear that he is no fan of Hillary Clinton: “Yes, in part because Hillary Clinton is a big liar. I liked her husband a lot more than I like her!”
It is clear that Donald Trump is bringing millions of nontraditional voters into the Republican Party. by expanding the tent and promoting a conservative message, Donald Trump is building a campaign like never before. This is why he will continue to rise in popularity.
