CNN’s Alisyn Camerota spoke with several voters who supported President Donald Trump in 2016 but have come to deeply regret their decision, now opting to back Democrats in the upcoming midterm elections.
> Independent voter Anthony Miles, who was attracted to President Donald Trump’s outsider status in the 2016 election, said he was hugely disappointed in the president getting caught up in one corruption scandal after another.
> “He said the system was rigged, and he said he was going to be a new sheriff in town,” Miles said. “And all he’s done is surrounded himself with crooks. How many people have been indicted who are in close cahoots with him?”
Lifelong Republican Stephanie Martin is “embarrassed” by Trump’s behavior since taking office:
> “I consider myself part of the religious right,” she said. “And now the values I see coming from the White House just don’t mesh up with what I believe.”
> She said she was particularly disturbed by the way Trump has continued to be just as divisive as president as he was as a candidate.
