Lifelong Republicans may be the ones to watch...

If they've been lifelong Republicans, they might know a bit more about the Republican party and values than Trumpers know. Trumpers strike me as ignorant, mostly non-political people who have jumped on the bandwagon of a politician who sounds as ignorant as they are.

Yesterday I was talking with my dental hygienist. She told me her mom and dad both voted for 3rd party candidates in 2016, although her mom is a lifelong Democrat and her dad is a lifelong Republican. Neither could vote for Hillary Clinton. She told me her dad read Elizabeth Warren's book and now this lifelong Republican is a die-hard supporter of Warren. He says he trusts Warren above all candidates in either party. The good thing to note here is that Trump is not gaining any support. He's losing it. Independents are important but there are a lot of politically minded folks who care about their country that are not Trumpers. Those are the ones the Democrats need. Those people that are silent in political discussions? They're the ones.

5. Well I didn't put her through a lie detector...

 

...but I think my hygienist knows her parents pretty well and why would she lie to me? Also, don't underestimate the damage the media piled on Hillary Clinton for 30 years. Democrats weren't immune to it.
