Mary Matalin, a high-profile political pundit and veteran strategist for the Republican Party, changed her party registration to Libertarian from Republican, she said on Thursday.
But in an interview with Bloomberg, which reported on the switch, she emphasized that her decision was not connected to Donald J. Trumps being the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.
She described herself as a voter as a provisional Trump and a never Hillary, referring to the leading Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton.
Pressed on Thursday about why she switched political parties, Ms. Matalin told Bloomberg Politics that she was a Republican in the Jeffersonian, Madisonian sense.
Im not a Republican for a party or a person, she continued. The Libertarian Party represents those constitutional principles that I agree with. Of Mr. Trump, Ms. Matalin said she liked his attitude and what she knew of his economic policies, adding: I just dont know enough. I think not only could he win, I think he could win in a landslide if he would stop his high school boy antics with women; otherwise hes going to force suburban women to Hillary.
She said conservatives were angry after two successive presidential elections in which they lost and with what appeared to be no response from Washington as the party was falling apart.

Ol’ serpent head finally got to her?
Personally, I don’t give a rip.
The depth of her judgement is on display in the person of her chosen husband, James Carville.
Isnt matain’s husband that clinton creep carvil
And, I care, WHY?
Here we go. They’re pushing for 3rd party. Funny. Many Libertarians like Trump.
She was always all flash. Never considered much of anything in the field, but decent on TV.
Looks like she went the other direction from her hubby. She’s still a flake.
She should just get it over with and join the demturd party like the Bush family and her ass hat husband.
She’s been a serpent surrogate for years, but pretended to be conservative to haul down the big bucks.
GET THE HELL OUT— We own this party!! They think they have the money? Are they nuts? We start giving now!!
i was going to say- why not leave the Republican party? they left us a long time ago...
Isnt matains husband that clinton creep carvil....
That is Car Vile..
Better to back Trump and help him bring in a new GOP organization that is more responsive to the people. It is going to be an historical time. I wouldn't miss it.
I’m loving the third party idea.
Burney for Green Party nominee!
she emphasized that her decision was not connected to Donald J. Trumps being the presumptive Republican presidential nominee
But the article would lead one to a conclusion opposite to the statement of the individual concerned.
“Better to back Trump and help him bring in a new GOP organization that is more responsive to the people. It is going to be an historical time. I wouldn’t miss it.”
She should have just switched over to Democrat, where her heart is now.
How many people at F.R. identify as republicans any more?
