Skip to comments.NYT: ‘Trump Faces ... Defections From ... Older White Voters’ (only quotes seniors who opposed Trump before - couldn’t find ‘defectors’?)

Clifford Wagner, an 80-year-old Republican in Tucson, Ariz., never cared for President Trump.
He supported Jeb Bush in the 2016 presidential primary race and cast a protest vote in the general election for Gary Johnson, the Libertarian nominee. An Air Force veteran, Mr. Wagner described the Trump presidency as a mortifying experience: His friends in Europe and Japan tell him the United States has become the laughingstock of the world.
This year, Mr. Wagner said he would register his opposition to Mr. Trump more emphatically than he did in 2016. He plans to vote for Joseph R. Biden Jr., the presumptive Democratic nominee, and hopes the election is a ruinous one for the Republican Party.

What kind of journalism opens a story on defections from Trump with a profile of a senior who never supported Trump in the first place?
In fact your entire article offers not a single named individual who supported Trump in 2016 but is defecting this year
Im not saying defections arent happening , but your inability to locate a single real live defector does make me wonder - and maybe thats the real story here?
Only 2 writers?
This is all about convincing the soyboy/soygirl entitled snowflakes that the election is in the bag so they go insane-squared when Trump wins in a landslide as they know he will.
Same story every election tion.
Defections from Republicans but these great investigators can never gind a democrat defection
Alexander Burns and Katie Glueck have their HUTA.
The doctor: "No, you don't have to wear the masque. I won't either. The coronavirus is the flu. More people died during the last flu epidemic than have died from the coronavirus. It's all a political ploy. Nothing more."
This 71 year old voter has supported President Trump since he announced his candidacy and still does. President Trump represents America and the dems represent anti-America.
This is another leftist lie. Numerous elderly Ive talked with are voting for Trump and are mortified by the Democratic Party being usurped by communists.
My parents must be the ones they spoke to. Both cannot stand POTUS, refer to him as the dummy, would never vote for him. Would they vote for Biden...they have never discussed Biden with me at all.
Did your Parent’s vote for Hillary in 2016?
If so, they aren’t defectors either.
I refuse to read anything from the New York Slimes. I believe there should be bounties on most of the media today. They are nothing but Biblical false prophets.
The left has been trying to turn Trump voters from day one. They did not make him so they can’t break him. I wonder if any Rush listeners ever got turned by the left?
They are the type who tell us it is none of anyone’s business but it would not surprise me.
Seniors are woke to Medicare for all means death panels for old.
May the ones who are really switching over to biteme announce it themselves and tell why they are tired of winning. Hurt butts reason does not count nor does get woke what ever that sellout monicker implies.
President Trump is the best President ever and weve been blessed to have him
My parents must be the ones they spoke to. Both cannot stand POTUS,
Theyre not defectors if they never liked Trump to begin with. The NY Times story says there are a lot of senior defectors from Trump - but only interviews seniors who opposed him all along.
Well, that is their prerogative, but why do they go out of their way to tell you that they hate Trump?
After all, it’s none of your business who they hate, right?
Just messing with you. Family is still Family. We either get along for the sake of the entire Family or we just walk away without regret.
There are many hard choices in Life.
They know they can print whatever they want since there are no consequences to them. They are pushing hard to make it look like a landslide victory for Biden in the hopes Trump supporters just give up. This suggests that they know Trump is likely to win.
>>His friends in Europe and Japan tell him the United States has become the laughingstock of the world.
Yeah, right. The Left in Europe has always derided Americans.
