Family members and some friends are denouncing trump and the republican party and switching to Democrats , and many are now running with them after seeing what a liar he is , and how corrupt he and the republicans have become. People are realizing they want to destroy health care , the rule of law and are corrupt, and they see he'll destroy Social Security , and some i know were pretty pissed about their tax scam bill , which also cut Medicaid , Medicare, and Social Security , after he claimed he wouldn't. Democrats should include that in their ads . many don't realize he's already cut these programs, and will a lot more like he's doing to the ACA.
