Report: Republicans Discover Republicans in Party, Flee Republican Party (Part Infinity)

Republican Flees The Trump Party

Our pal Driftglass has a funny and insightful observation that Never-Trumper Republicans had no idea that their party is full of Republicans until about five minutes ago. That noted, I find that this story is interesting:

“About 19,000 Pennsylvanians have left the Republican Party since Jan 6. That’s a drop in the bucket for a state with more than 8.8 million registered voters, and almost 3.5 million Republicans. But it’s also an unusually high rate of defections: Almost two-thirds of the voters who have switched parties this year left the GOP, compared with a third or less typically.”

“And there are signs of a broader political shift underway. These are often longtime party loyalists, highly engaged voters who cast Republican primary ballots in low-profile, off-year elections… They haven’t changed their political ideologies, they said in interviews. But they’re registering as third-party or independent voters because they believe that their political home, now led by Trump, has changed around them.”

And then the Inquirer delivers the coup de grace:

“That raises the prospect of a Republican primary electorate even friendlier to Trump and Trump-allied candidates — something that could have big implications for the party in competitive races for governor and U.S. Senate next year.”

I didn’t really see that coming, but it makes sense that this could be happening everywhere we see measurable defections.

The Coup Klux Klan is more likely to get their extremist candidate of choice without having a moderate alternative.

The real question is if having fewer morons nominating the GQP candidate, will the candidate have less support during the general election, or will it be the usual  scenario of the mouth-breathers pulling the lever for any name with the (R) after it? I have it on good authority that they can read the letter “R” when it is alone and not near other letters.

    I tend to go with the lemming analogy rather than rats. The rats I’ve experienced (recently) lived in my woodshed and crapped all over my firewood, but were quite difficult to get rid of, seeing that they figured out that traps were just that (not sure the Chumpanzees would do that). Lemmings OTOH, seem eager to follow their chosen leader over the cliff and fall to certain death. But either way, rats swimming for their lives, or lemmings following dear leader, the end game is the same. The dissolution of the GQP is long overdo…

    Whelp, depending on the district some of the super-duper trumpnauts will win, in others they won’t. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
    I would hope on balance more would lose than win but the 2022 Goat Rodeo will be one for the ages. 🐐🐐🐐🐐 🐐🐐

    What are they gonna do when he’s imprisoned? Because the Supremes just said he can no longer expect the kind of protection he had as a sitting preznit, from investigators looking at his taxes, loan documents and insurance forms, claims etc.

    So for the SDNY, it’s Open Season and there’s no bag limit.

    I love the idea of multiple GQP parties. They’ll never win a majority again ever. What’s not to like?
