Is anyone else seeing how many Democrats

in Ohio are crossing over to vote for Trump? On MSNBC right now. Crazy...


edited to add. Six times the amount. That's the number they just reported.


2nd edit: it's a question are they voting Trump, not a statement. That's how the telly reported it. They spoke to some that said they voted for Trump.

24. An Ohio D caller on CSPAN said that he voted for Trump

along with "172 other Dems" in order to help "fracture the R party".

It's at this link. At the 16 minute mark.

3. I'm not sure what sort of primary they have but

 

if they only have to be registered to vote to vote in a primary, they may be picking the candidates on the other side who they think is the easiest to *Beat* in a general election.

19. I'm not a big poll believer but

 

in head to head match-ups, Trump shows himself to be the candidate that can be beaten by either of the two Dem. candidates. Numbers do not look as good for Clinton when going head to head with the other GOP candidates.

5. Six times what amount? Can you tell us more? This is truly bizarre. My guess: TRADE.

14. The reporter was at the voting machine..

he said that only about 7% of the ballots that went through the machine should have been Republican. Instead it was 42%. Which means that dems were crossing over. They couldn't tell you they were voting for, only that they had cast votes for R's.

This was in Struthers Ohio...out skirts of Youngstown. Overwhelmingly Democratic area.

8. Careful

as Hartmann reported today Trump has received almost $2 BILLION in FREE TV exposure. That includes a big chunk from M$NBC.

They seem to be in the bag for him.

13. They built him up to siphon votes from Bernie and beat up the GOP for Clinton. They have been



trying to take him down lately, but I think they misjudged how pissed off the American People are.

11. I brought that up on DU last month

when I voted. While I was at the board of elections three other people came in and all three changed from Democrat to Republican. I can say I don't blame them we have Democrats that say they are going to kill coal powered plants and coal mines.
We have two Democrats that want to stop fracking. We have two Democrats that are attacking gun rights.
Another thing I was contacted once by phone to get out and vote guess for who,Trump.

26. I hope Sanders' supporters aren't opting to vote against Trump

rather than for Sanders, thinking Hillary has it sown up. I wish I could crawl inside their brains and know their thinking!

28. A lot of people are thinking they're Hillary supporters thinking that she has OH in the bag,

but I feel like everything is just speculation at this point. It will be interesting to say the least to see how this plays out.

17. I think they want to Trump to win the Repub nomination . . .

so either Dem can kick his ass!

A Dem buddy of mine here in Missouri wanted to vote Trump this morning so we can kick his ass in Nov. But he, like me, ended up voting for Hillary!

30. I DON'T Watch Them Anymore, But This Is Just So, So Wrong In So, So

many ways!!! WTF are they trying to do??? I support Bernie so don't understand this at all. Are they trying to boost Hillary support? I'm sure they AREN'T trying to help Bernie, but they are being called Mains Stream News Billionaire Coverage channel now!

This is just crazy... MSM isn't NEWS! Switch to FSTV to get your news. Or other alternative networks. There ARE a lot of them when you start looking. I DO like RT too, but I get called out for it being a Russian network. It's called RT America and Ed Schultz has a program on it.

I watch both of them instead of the CORPORATE SUCK A-- Wh---s!

AMERICA has LOST it's way! OUTRAGEOUS for them to do even be reporting this over and over!
