(ConservativePeak.com)-Not all Republicans are blindly backing President Donald Trump in his re-election effort.
An ad campaign called Republican Voters Against Trump shows Republican voters talking about why they won’t be voting for the president come the November General Election, choosing his Democratic challenger, Joe Biden, instead.
Jack Spielman, who voted for the president in 2016, now calls Trump “toxic.” He’s seen saying in the ad:
“I’d vote for a tuna fish sandwich before I’d vote for Donald Trump again.”
The campaign is a project from a group called Defending Democracy Together, which is made up of conservatives who are anti-Trump. The organization says it has almost 100 video testimonials like the one from Spielman, and more are on the way.
Defending Democracy Together said it will spend $10 million promoting the video testimonials they’ve put together on both television and social media.
Sarah Longwell, a spokesperson for Republican Voters Against Trump, said disaffected Republican voters could actually be the most effective voices of persuasion for Biden. She said:
“There are millions of voters who used to be reliable Republicans but are disgusted by the Trump administration. Some are upset about the skyrocketing debt. Others about how he has debased the office. Some wish he would pursue a more human immigration policy.”
Ultimately, though, Longwell said the one big issue that unites all these GOPers against Trump is “wanting the country to move on from this deeply un-American presidency.”
Republican Voters Against Trump has posted more of the video testimonials on its website. There is also a section of the site that allows other people to share their own stories of being a Republican but being against the president in the upcoming election.
Some of these testimonials include …
Matt from North Carolina: “I don’t want to die knowing that I supported somebody who could wreak havoc on the future. I have two daughters, I’m thinking about how they’re impacted.”
Shennelleh from Massachusetts: I don’t believe Trump is an actual Republican. We all took it in and voted for him, but I don’t believe he truly cares about Republican values.”
Elaine from Georgia: “The fact that he’s going to give them the judges that they want means that they’ll overlook anything. And I actually mean anything. A hundred thousand deaths due to COVID, vast and blatant corruption.”
Tom from Wisconsin: “There will be no ‘Biden for President’ bumper sticker on my car, but Donald Trump is a direct threat to my country.”
Jessica from Georgia: “I probably would have voted for him again had all the things with the coronavirus not taken place.”
Eric from Louisiana: “One thing I have figured out for sure is that I’m not voting for Donald Trump. I think that is just a moral imperative.”
Bryan from Maryland: “I’m going to vote for Joe Biden. I’m going to disagree with him a lot. But I don’t consider him a threat to the Republic.”
Joe from Pennsylvania: “When I compare Donald Trump with the great legacies of GOP president Eisenhower and Reagan, he just comes up short.”
