“Hi, I’m John and I voted for Donald J. Trump in 2016. I voted for Donald Trump in 2016 because he was likely to have control of the nomination of two Supreme Court justices. Because of what I saw of the Donald Trump administration, particularly during the year of 2020, I chose to vote for Biden for president, the first Democrat I’ve ever voted for for president.

“What we saw happening in 2020 is Donald Trump coming out early that year, way before the election, already questioning the election results. There were other things, there was a bad response to COVID, there was the Black Lives Matter spectacle of him going across the street from the White House and holding up the Bible.
