The Democrat from Reddit appealed to users who voted for Donald Trump in the US presidential elections, and asked them to explain their choice. The post became popular with the community, gaining more than 22 thousand likes, and the answers the author received left him surprised.
An Okvist user addressed the audience and explained that he is a supporter of the Democratic Party and its candidate Joe Biden. “Before election night, I believed that, given the number of people willing to vote for the first time, we would see a landslide victory for Biden. To my surprise, this did not actually happen, ”he wrote. The author of the publication called on Republican supporters to help him understand why they believed in Trump and decided to vote for him.
So, dmd2540 wrote that the vote for Trump is connected not with the candidate himself, but with what he does for the citizens of the country. “I think no one votes for him because of his image. Rather, we support him despite this, ”the commentator emphasized.
According to a reasonablemethodist, Trump is definitely proposing measures and steps that are sympathetic to a large segment of US citizens. They also noted that even if everything they say about him is true, then "half the country still hates the measures" of the Democrats and Biden strong enough to vote in favor of the Republican.
AugustaSugarbean explained that he is not voting for Trump: 70 percent of his vote is against Biden and 30 percent for Trump. “No, free college is not the answer. It's the same with healthcare. Yes, there are racists in the country. But no, they are not all conservatives. Yes, there are bad cops. But no, they are not even close to the majority, ”the voter stressed.
In addition to the rest, farastray said that Trump is too negatively painted in the media, compared to dictators and constantly belittled the merits of the head of state. He also complained that often television and Internet publications require people not only to receive information, but to think and do only what is considered correct.
Kahookelekealaloa admitted that in the past he voted for Barack Obama, the Democratic president, and in 2016 decided to ignore the election. “In 2020, I voted for Trump, he became the first Republican I ever voted for in a presidential election,” the author said. He explained that the decision to vote not for Biden was due to "peaceful protests" this summer. According to him, pogroms and robberies under the guise of actions against racism and police violence caused him strong indignation.
After reading the comments, the author of the post was surprised that he received much more answers than he expected, and that, in general, the discussion turned out to be civilized. He also promised to read as many comments as possible and respond to several of them.
In the US, the counting of votes for candidates for the presidency of the country continues. Election day was November 3, but this year, due to the pandemic, voters could also vote by mail, requesting a ballot in advance. The current president, Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden, who served as vice president under Barack Obama, are fighting for the post of head of state. In many states, the difference between applicants is a fraction of a percent.
