In light of recent allegations of sexual assault by GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, many prominent Republicans have shifted their allegiance to Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton. Here is a list of all the Republicans now supporting Hillary Clinton.
Things don’t seem to be looking so good for GOP presidential candidate, Donald Trump. Before the second presidential debate, a leaked video surfaced on the Internet showing the 70-year-old billionaire boasting about his sexual conquests, and the inappropriate ways he is able to treat women. Following the leaked video, over nine women came forward to accuse the real estate mogul of highly inappropriate behavior towards them. Taking these new allegations into consideration, Trump’s support from women has seen a decline all across the United States, and several prominent Republicans have gone on record to show their support for Hillary Clinton. We have compiled a list of some prominent Republicans supporting Hillary Clinton, which is steadily growing as the 2016 U.S. presidential election draws to a close.
Former President George W. Bush: According to the former Lieutenant Governor of Maryland, Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, Bush stated his support for Hillary Clinton in person, although his office hasn’t confirmed the report.
Member of Congress Rep. Richard Hanna: Although the moderate Republican from New York is retiring this year, he went on record to admit that Trump is unfit to lead the country as president and he will support Clinton. Hanna proclaimed, “I think Trump is a national embarrassment. Is he really the guy you want to have the nuclear codes?”
