(CNN)Meg Whitman, a major GOP donor and former California gubernatorial candidate, said Tuesday she would support Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump, making her one of the highest-profile Republican defections.

"Donald Trump's demagoguery has undermined the fabric of our national character," Whitman said in a statement. "America needs the kind of stable and aspirational leadership Secretary Clinton can provide."

Whitman, the president and CEO of Hewlett-Packard, also said in an interview with the New York Times she would use her considerable resources to make a contribution to the Clinton campaign and its allied super PACs.
Clinton herself asked Whitman for her support, the businesswoman told the Times, which was the first to report the endorsement.
Whitman's comments came as Trump has clashed with members of his own party over a protracted dispute with the family of a Muslim US soldier who was killed in action. They also came on a day that saw the first sitting Republican member of Congress express support for Clinton as well as the top adviser to former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and the former top aide to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
The latter two defections mean Whitman's endorsement capped off a two-day period during which three Republican women said they would cross the aisle to back Clinton over Trump.
Whitman ended her statement endorsing Clinton by calling on all Republicans to follow her, saying: "I urge all Republicans to reject Donald Trump this November."
Whitman is no stranger to politics, having raised money for Republican candidates and embarking on a failed bid to become the governor of California. In this cycle, she supported Gov. Chris Christie -- who is among Trump's most prominent backers.
As the election unfolded Whitman continually railed against the Republican nominee and his supporters. When Christie endorsed Trump, Whitman took him to task, calling it "an astonishing display of political opportunism."
At the time, she also made a pledge not to back Trump should he emerge from the primaries victorious.
"I won't be voting for Donald Trump," Whitman said Friday on CNBC. "Look at the comments he's made about women, about Muslims, about reporters, it's just repugnant."
After Trump clinched the GOP nomination, Whitman compared Trump to Hitler and Mussolini at a private retreat hosted by 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney.

It's not funny how big business is supporting Hillary, it's expected. She is a tried-and-true Corporate Politician, bought and paid for, Republocrat status-quo candidate. Corporations will LOVE her.

Just reveals precisely what Conservatives dislike in RINO's... And so much of the establishment.

She's now behind the anti-American party and a criminal candidate and Felonious husband.

Great job Meg.

You just ended you political career on the right.

Good riddance.

The Democrats are anti-American and Bill is a felon?

Wow! When did that happen?

I don't think there's such a thing as a real GOP gubernatorial candidate in California any longer. Just RINOs

Honestly. You really need to turn down right wing radio.

Ahhhh... There we go, the Leftists telling people what they should listen to. What they should eat. How much salt restaurants can put in their food.

She just joined the anti-American Party... It's what the Democrats have become... Demokrats.

I believe rape is a felony.

The Democrat party isn't the patriotic party of Grandpa... Since Vietnam we've seen the slide down a miserable slope occur with ever growing speed.

Hillary a patriot?
Pelosi's a patriot?
Obama a patriot?

ROTFLOL... Hell, Obama had to be shamed into wearing an American flag pin, and the DNC forgot they were having a convention to nominate a potential American president. Luckily they could get ahold of some flags for day-2.

And look at the Demokrat party and electorate... Two Socialists battle it out.

I don't think you know the typical base of the Republican Party... And it's not surprising because that party has been taken over by ball-less RINO's. 1994 was really, the last Grand Stand, the last charge of the Reagan revolution politically. Economically Reagan's influence lasted through Clinton.

Today, many are fed up, and looking for someone to turn the whole thing upside down. Enter Trump.

I haven't seen polls on this, but I bet a huge portion of Trump's constituency is from the Tea Party and Reagan Democrat types.

Great to see his visits across America getting massive support... While Hillary can't fill a high school gym.

Idiots are easier to round up, that's for sure.

But that being said, and while I'm not a big proponent of using polling as an argument, if the election were held today based off the RCP averages today, Hillary would win quite comfortably against Trump with 318 Electoral Votes, that's a big mountain to climb and I don't think there's enough angry white guys out there like yourself to carry him over the top :shrug:

Yep... Lots of idiots voted for the least experienced and most anti-American president ever. I'm sure many people look back and think... My was I ever a sucker... Idiot.

I wouldn't trust polling too much, especially today. Many of these polls are slanted, and that has to make Criminal Hillary and her crew pretty nervous, because she has nothing to run on.

Economy? Nope.
Foreign policy? ROTFLOL... Nope.
Trust me? Nope.
Change agent? Hahahaha Nope.
Vagina? Yes.

So, she's got her vagina working for her.
That and Santa Claus. Parasite Nation 2.0

Reagan was supposedly somewhere near 10 down a week before the election in 1979.
Result: Landslide.

Early in the 2003 election night, Demokrats showed Kerry winning huge... In an effort to depress the vote.
Result: Dog face lost.

You have to get people to vote, and when it comes to motivation... Candidate connection... Changing the course of the country... That's all Trump.

I have to laugh... Looking back all the Lefties thought... Trump's never going to... Trump stepped in it... Trump can't... Impossible... And here we are. LOL...

Who is the "we" you speak for?
I don't see you standing by the picture. I think I see Hillary. Is that her on Uranus?

And... Hillary... What does she have going for her?

Economy? No.
Foreign Policy? You've got to be kidding.
Trustworthy? 30-years of deceit crowned by her FOXNEWS lies on the weekend!!!
Change agent? Hahahaha... Nope. Can you say... Establishment... Bought and paid for?
Vagina? Yes

What is the great platform Hillary is running on? I have a vagina. It's time!

Why is she afraid to give an open News conference? It's been what 240-days? Why so shy? You'd think they'd be able to have fed the press questions for a presser as they did at her so called "rallies"... Or?

Tiresome often comes from stress... Being depressed. Or partying too long :)
