CNN’s Alisyn Camerota spoke with six white suburban women voters who voted for Donald Trump in 2016. When asked who still supported the president, half of them said no and that they would vote for Joe Biden in November.
Camerota wanted to know what drew them away from Trump.
“I think it’s one of if not the biggest mistake I’ve ever made in my life,” Ann Kupitz told CNN as she slammed the president’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic. “I feel like voting for him helped kill over 100,000 Americans.”
There was one specific moment when Trump lost Kupitz for good.
“The pandemic was when my eyes began to open,” she said. “And June 1st, when he set U.S. troops on peaceful protesters in Lafayette Square, that was my cross-the-line moment.”
Lori McCammon, another one of the women who won’t vote for Trump in November, said that she has mostly voted Republican throughout her life but was sickened by what had become of the GOP.
“They are not Republicans,” she said. “They’re Trumpers. Period. We’ve lost the Republican Party ― it’s gone.”
The three other women in the panel weren’t shy about expressing their support for Trump, despite Camerota having to fact-check them on basic facts.
