Mahoning County, Ohio (CNN)Dozens of lifelong Democrats were calling and Mark Monroe knew something was going on. They were calling the local Republican Party chairman because they wanted to join his party.

They wanted to join Donald Trump's party.

It turns out that registering is as easy as asking for a ballot on Ohio's primary day. So, he told them, just show up on March 15, and request a Republican ballot. So they did.
Trump's convention choice: Bring the party together or blow it apart
In Mahoning County, home to Youngstown, one of the great steel cities of the early 20th century, 6,171 Democrats did this. Fewer than 200 Republicans wanted to become Democrats.
"I looked at Republican turnout on election night and I saw 34,000 Republicans had voted," Monroe said. "I nearly fell off my chair because there were only 14- or 15,000 Republicans in Mahoning County."

Most shocking of all, is that 18 Democratic precinct captains -- local party officials in the county -- were among the switchers. Dave Betras, the county Democratic chair, summarily fired them.
"I just simply with the stroke of a pen removed them and filled their positions with other loyal Democrats," he said.
If Donald Trump can win Ohio in November, it'll be because of places like Mahoning County. He badly lost the Ohio primary to Gov. John Kasich, but he won in Mahoning County.

this county hasnt voted republican in a LONG time....but it seems people are fed up all over the country

Ohio, Virginia, Florida.....this election cycle keeps getting weirder and weirder

I keep expecting Rod Serling to pop out somewhere and welcome me to the twilight zone

I think its more likely that these people wanted to rat **** the republican primary by propping up Trump so Clinton can easily win.

Clinton isn't going to win with Trump, not unless foul play is at hand.

He's the only one who will get as filthy, as slimy, as low rent as the Clinton's and that is the only way you're going to beat her.

Meanwhile, people who've vowed to support the GOP nominee whomever that was to be have shown more of the same old same old.

Rubio, Cruz, Bush -- all god damn liars.

Not that this was a new and starling discovery, but it is really troublesome to hear this defeatist tone about the GOP candidate who beat a field larger than I can ever remember.

It is also troublesome to see people supporting politicians whose word means absolute ****.

The guaranteed Clinton Presidency would come should Trump not be the candidate that faces her.

Trump is such a lousy candidate that the only way Clinton will lose is if unicorns come out of Obama's ass, Hell freezes over and Sanders renounces socialism and becomes a die hard capitalist.

Meanwhile, people who've vowed to support the GOP nominee whomever that was to be have shown more of the same old same old.

Rubio, Cruz, Bush -- all god damn liars.

This is what I find amusing about Trump-bots.Trump has constantly flip flopped and lied his ass off, but some how is politcians who are way more consistent in their beliefs are the liars.l

Trump' word means absolute ****.As much as Trump has flip flopped and lied his ass off how can you sit there and say his word means anything? Because if he says something he might change his mind minutes later.

The guaranteed Clinton Presidency would come should Trump not be the candidate that faces her.

You are deluded if you think Trump can beat Clinton. Trump is the liberal media and democrat party's dream come true. I am surprised they were not singing Queen's song we are the champions the second retarded republicans gave Trump the nomination.

Even if all your biased perceptions were true, voting for him is STILL better than saddling our country with Hillary. He is undeniably the lesser of evils.

Trump supported Hillary Clinton, Praised the job she done, donated a $100,000 plus to her senate race and charity. He even liked her and husband so much he had them show up to his wedding.He also donated to some of the most despicable liberal and RINO politicians and therefor he indirectly helped various liberal ideas become law..He has also support many liberal issues. So I can't trust that he will be all that lesser of a evil than Clinton.




Imagine if Rush Limbaugh started saying socialism, food stamps, an increase in minimum wage, cap and trade and other liberal issues are great things and hypothetically donated to various republican conservatives and blue dog democrats and switched his party affialiation to democrat and ran as a democrat.On top and that flipped back and forth between supporting liberal and conservative issues. Do you think democrats would be stupid enough to vote for Limbaugh in a presidential election? **** no they wouldn't.

Makes no difference.

He is running as a Republican. He must deal with a Republican Congress. If he, as you seem to fear, goes against them they won't give him the time of day...just like they won't give Hillary the time of day if she wins. But, for sure, he won't follow the tactical footsteps that Obama has taken, while Hillary has SAID she will.

He IS the lesser of two evils.

You're a potty squatty user -- ain't ya?

This is what I find amusing -- when people who haven't a clue find something amusing. Did they pledge to support the nominee or not? They did. Don't be a ****ing dem and cry "He, he he lies too!!!"

Trump' word means absolute ****.As much as Trump has flip flopped and lied his ass off how can you sit there and say his word means anything? Because if he says something he might change his mind minutes later.

The same as the rest of them. I never said it does. None of them do. The proof is in the pudding.



You are deluded if you think Trump can beat Clinton. Trump is the liberal media and democrat party's dream come true. I am surprised they were not singing Queen's song we are the champions the second retarded republicans gave Trump the nomination.

No, not at all. You should really take a step back and think who the deluded ones are, and which of them more. The one's who support the little whore unflinchingly, or those that oppose her yet buy hook, line, and sinker her inevitability. Who will win? We shall C...


*****I amend the above statements********

On the very good chance that the GOP shoots themselves in the both feet, their ass, as well as stab millions of voters in the back -- yes, HRC will win by a landslide.

If anything they will go along with what ever liberal issue he pushes simply because he is claiming to be a republican.Tax increases, single payer healthcare and other liberal nonsense he pushes will pass simply because a republican president with a house and senate full of republicans proposed those ideas instead of a democrat.

He IS the lesser of two evils.

How can someone who supported liberal issues, donated to some of the most despicable liberal democrats and rinos, and even had the democrat front runner and her husband show up to his wedding be the lesser of two evils? Because he is running as a republican you honestly think he just magically changed?

donaldjtrump.com

Show me where Trump advocates for the things you "say" he'll push for.

In any case, your contention that a Republican Congress will just "go along" with any liberal issue he pushes is ludicrous. Heck, Boehner...a guy just trying to make deals with Obama...couldn't get support from Congressional Republican much of the time. You think Trump can?

LOL!!

shrug...

I've seen politicians from BOTH sides say one thing and do another. If Trump does so, it'll be nothing new. At least there is a possibility he WILL try to do as he says. With Hillary, we KNOW she's lying. We KNOW she'll say one thing, do another...and try to blame the Republicans instead of admitting she doesn't give a **** about what the voters want.

Trump is the lesser of evils.

NO. NO HE IS NOT.

I don't trust Hillary as far as I can throw her, and I've long championed the breakup of the duopoly the parties have. I've long been open to voting for an antiestablishment outsider, even if that outsider was running on the GOP ticket.

However, not Donald Trump. As bad and dishonest and ****ty as Hillary is, Donald Trump is exponentially worse. He's been a craven huckster for more than 30 years in the public eye, and you are all-in on him. That's utterly pathetic.

Show some ****ing balls for once in your life and stop bending over for your sainted GOP just because you think it's a chance to stick it to liberals.

No but that commercial is fun to show to little kids and tell them that is where icecream comes from.

But doesn't he only technically becomes the official nominee after the convention?

Trump will lose because in the eyes of the liberal media his baggage and skeletons in his closet counts a whole lot more than Clinton's. The liberal media would rather have a democrat liberal as president instead of a republican liberal.
On the very good chance that the GOP shoots themselves in the both feet, their ass, as well as stab millions of voters in the back -- yes, HRC will win by a landslide.

They shot themselves in the foot the second retards voted for Trump and the fact they allowed democrats to rat**** the republican primary by propping up Trump. Party primaries should not be open to other parties nor should voters be allowed to switch parties when the candidates announce all the way until the primaries are over.

The only potential positive (?) of a Donald Trump presidency is that both parties hate him so much that they'd join in unison to collectively screw him up his orange ass.

Nope. Do not try to pass the buck on this one. The right created this monster. They own it.

Then tell the party to change its rules. But don't even try to blame Democrats for the beast the GOP itself, and only itself, spawned with the short-fingered vulgarian.

No but....


Ok. We're not going to get anywhere here and you think that Trump is playing Political Pokemon and only you found where this little elusive lib at the bottom of his heart is hiding

There are too many people to count who've jumped party/ideological lines in their lives (not the least of which was Reagan) but for some reason you think this is Trump just pulling one over on the country, because, yeah, his brand wouldn't be irreparably harmed by that little hoodwink. :roll:

And just to provide full disclosure

Bush 92
Dole 96
W 2000
W 2004
Obama 2008
Johnson 2012

My last 6 picks for President. Since 2006 I've hated the GOP, hated them. The only group of people I loathe more? Democrats. Dems in general and Hillary God Damn Rodham Clinton in particular. I despised that bitch when she was first lady and all the way up to this post, and here after for all eternity.

See, after W I had enough, I gave this crack baby in chief a chance and he screwed the pooch. Sure as **** wasn't voting for him again nor for the magic undie Romney. So don't think I give a rat's ass whether the GOP lives or dies. I don't, I'd just as soon see it go by the way of Whigs... I've voted 3rd party on the undercard for all but judges. I vote them SOB's out every time, regardless of party.

What I want is HRC defeated. Done. Wave bye bye bitch be gone. Now was there anyone in that lineup that the GOP put out there that could defeat her aside from Trump? No. Not a one. Don't kid yourself. None of them would have, none of them could have. The "retards" as you call them, your words not mine, vote for Trump because they see the existential threat to this country that a Clinton Presidency will bring. They know the only one who'll get low down and dirty like she will, and it's gonna be a very ugly couple months ahead, is Trump. The only person capable of playing the Dems at their own game? Trump.

Now, would I have liked to see Cruz? Wouldn't have been a bad 2nd choice, but i'd rather see him on the SCOTUS. His ambition is what's preventing that from happening and I think he'd do a helluva lot better job for the country in that capacity. Rubio? Nah. First thing he did after getting let out of his cage? He goes and ****'s on the rug. Bad Marco! BAD!! Bush? Get real. I got two words for Jeb! Savings & Loan. Hillary would have rode these two words right into the oval office. Kasich? LMFAO Not a snowball's chance in hell. About as much charisma as my left ass cheek.

So who?

No one.

So do everyone a favor. If you really don't want to see Hillary ruin our country pull your big girl pants up and get on board. Anything else and you're supporting her.

A true Democrat could never become a Republican and a true Republican could never become a Democrat. The two political ideologies are like oil and water. Those who can so easily switch party and vote based on who the particular candidates are either do not understand the disparity or don't care.

There is nothing elusive about Trump's liberal views.His liberal views are in his books, and on video. I have posted them numerous times.There is also the fact he donated some of the most despicable liberal democrats and RINO republicans that says he is no conservative.

There are too many people to count who've jumped party/ideological lines in their lives (not the least of which was Reagan) but for some reason you think this is Trump just pulling one over on the country, because, yeah, his brand wouldn't be irreparably harmed by that little hoodwink. :roll:

Its one thing to change your mind on multiple issues because your views have genuinely changed. Its another thing to change your mind multiple issues because you think it is going to get you elected.Like Mitt Romney doing a 180 on his views so he can GOP nomination in 2012 or Trump doing 180 on his views so he can get the GOP nomination.

What I want is HRC defeated. Done. Wave bye bye bitch be gone. Now was there anyone in that lineup that the GOP put out there that could defeat her aside from Trump? No. Not a one. Don't kid yourself. None of them would have, none of them could have. The "retards" as you call them, your words not mine, vote for Trump because they see the existential threat to this country that a Clinton Presidency will bring. They know the only one who'll get low down and dirty like she will, and it's gonna be a very ugly couple months ahead, is Trump. The only person capable of playing the Dems at their own game? Trump.

You are deluded for thinking Trump has a chance against Clinton. There could a Video of Hillary Clinton molesting little kids and stomping on the heads of newborn puppies and kittens and nothing would happen to her. Trumps flip flopping, past donations to various politicians, alleged racism claims from past employees, and The fact he used eminent domain to kick or try to kick people out of their homes for his businesses are going to be used by the liberal media to burn him.

Now, would I have liked to see Cruz? Wouldn't have been a bad 2nd choice, but i'd rather see him on the SCOTUS. His ambition is what's preventing that from happening and I think he'd do a helluva lot better job for the country in that capacity. Rubio? Nah. First thing he did after getting let out of his cage? He goes and ****'s on the rug. Bad Marco! BAD!! Bush? Get real. I got two words for Jeb! Savings & Loan. Hillary would have rode these two words right into the oval office. Kasich? LMFAO Not a snowball's chance in hell. About as much charisma as my left ass cheek.

Those liberal democrats and RINOs would never appoint Cruz to SCOTUS. They don't want conservatives.
So who?

No one.

So do everyone a favor. If you really don't want to see Hillary ruin our country pull your big girl pants up and get on board. Anything else and you're supporting her.

If you really didn't want to see Clinton ruin the country then the one thing you should have done is not vote for Trump in the primaries. By voting for Trump in the primaries you gift wrapped and gave the presidency to Clinton.You even rented her some chip and dale strippers and bought her a huge collection of pant suits to go with the gift wrapped presidency to Clinton.

I am sure like all Trump-bots you will use the "but that was yesterday he said that" excuse or some variation of it to excuse his liberal beliefs.

Donald Trump rounds out the week on Morning Joe | MSNBC

https://www.numbersusa.com/blog/pro...lker-santorum-week-weve-done-lots-new-ratings
[h=3]WHAT TRUMP SAID[/h]On Friday's broadcast of MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Trump said he was "a very big believer in the merit system" to "work something out" for "some of these people have been here, they've done a good job. You know, in some cases, sadly, they've been living under the shadows." Nearly all journalists tend to think the most important immigration question is what should be done with the millions of illegal immigrants already in this country. I hope candidates will learn to say, "That's the wrong question. The right question is what can we do to minimize the harm that having a large illegal population does to the wages of American workers."
But Trump answered:
Well, the first thing we do is take the bad ones, of which there are, unfortunately, quite a few. We take the bad ones, and get them the hell out. . . . We have to get the bad ones out. Then the other ones -- and I'm a very big believer in merit system. I have to tell you. Because some of these people have been here, they've done a good job. You know, in some cases, sadly, they've been living under the shadows, etc. etc. We have to do something. So, whether it's merit or whether it's whatever, but I'm a believer in the merit system. If somebody's been outstanding, we try and work something out. But before we do anything, Joe, we have to secure the border...."

In any case, your contention that a Republican Congress will just "go along" with any liberal issue he pushes is ludicrous. Heck, Boehner...a guy just trying to make deals with Obama...couldn't get support from Congressional Republican much of the time. You think Trump can?

Yeah man, those republicans did a great job repealing Obama-care executive amnesties and Obama's other liberal nonsense even though they control both the house and senate and not passed and bills that fund all of the nonsense Obama wants. Oh wait they didn't.All they did was pass D.O.A. stand alone bills so they can lie to their constituents that they tried and demonized and blamed Ted Cruz for shutting down the government for trying to stop Obama-care.You are telling me that that those same republicans will Stop Trump's liberal nonsense?

I've seen politicians from BOTH sides say one thing and do another. If Trump does so, it'll be nothing new. At least there is a possibility he WILL try to do as he says.
Of course the is,thats because he constantly flip flops on the issues. So if he passes his liberal nonsense, then by your logic he will have done as he said he will do.



Trump is the lesser of evils.

Its how much lesser that should be the question.​

There is nothing elusive about Trump's liberal views.His liberal views are in his books, and on video. I have posted them numerous times.There is also the fact he donated some of the most despicable liberal democrats and RINO republicans that says he is no conservative.



Its one thing to change your mind on multiple issues because your views have genuinely changed. Its another thing to change your mind multiple issues because you think it is going to get you elected.Like Mitt Romney doing a 180 on his views so he can GOP nomination in 2012 or Trump doing 180 on his views so he can get the GOP nomination.

So then your position is that Trump is mad and he wants his entire fortune to go down the drain. Smart.


You are deluded for thinking Trump has a chance against Clinton. There could a Video of Hillary Clinton molesting little kids and stomping on the heads of newborn puppies and kittens and nothing would happen to her. Trumps flip flopping, past donations to various politicians, alleged racism claims from past employees, and The fact he used eminent domain to kick or try to kick people out of their homes for his businesses are going to be used by the liberal media to burn him.


You act like this isn't common knowledge and that people care? It's all old hat, no one cares what Trump did any more than the Dems care about HRC's laundry list of evil. If anything it will help him get Dem votes. They're very forgiving of crooks.

Those liberal democrats and RINOs would never appoint Cruz to SCOTUS. They don't want conservatives.

I might have to agree with you here. I think they need to throw in someone like Roberts but reverse. Get'em thinking he's all Mr. RINO and then WHAM! Scalia's Ghost!.

If you really didn't want to see Clinton ruin the country then the one thing you should have done is not vote for Trump in the primaries. By voting for Trump in the primaries you gift wrapped and gave the presidency to Clinton.You even rented her some chip and dale strippers and bought her a huge collection of pant suits to go with the gift wrapped presidency to Clinton.

I say it thrice, for the boys in the back a little hard of hearing. NO ONE ELSE HAD A CHANCE.

I am sure like all Trump-bots you will use the "but that was yesterday he said that" excuse or some variation of it to excuse his liberal beliefs.

Donald Trump rounds out the week on Morning Joe | MSNBC

https://www.numbersusa.com/blog/pro...lker-santorum-week-weve-done-lots-new-ratings
[h=3]WHAT TRUMP SAID[/h]On Friday's broadcast of MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Trump said he was "a very big believer in the merit system" to "work something out" for "some of these people have been here, they've done a good job. You know, in some cases, sadly, they've been living under the shadows." Nearly all journalists tend to think the most important immigration question is what should be done with the millions of illegal immigrants already in this country. I hope candidates will learn to say, "That's the wrong question. The right question is what can we do to minimize the harm that having a large illegal population does to the wages of American workers."
But Trump answered:
Well, the first thing we do is take the bad ones, of which there are, unfortunately, quite a few. We take the bad ones, and get them the hell out. . . . We have to get the bad ones out. Then the other ones -- and I'm a very big believer in merit system. I have to tell you. Because some of these people have been here, they've done a good job. You know, in some cases, sadly, they've been living under the shadows, etc. etc. We have to do something. So, whether it's merit or whether it's whatever, but I'm a believer in the merit system. If somebody's been outstanding, we try and work something out. But before we do anything, Joe, we have to secure the border...."

Why do you Trumpanzees insist on using such emphatic adjectives?

shrug...

Not emphatic...just realistic.

Why do you feel the need to insult someone who has only decided to vote for the lesser of two evils? Does it make you feel good to call people names?
