Donald Trump, Caroline Van Houston, Gary Johnson discussed on This Week with George Stephanopoulos

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

They get honks thumbs ups, the occasional middle finger. They wave back at him all. It's our therapy. It's better than sitting on the couch watching the news doing nothing lifelong Republicans until 2016 the walls weren't fans of Donald Trump. So they voted for Gary Johnson. But this November they'll proudly vote Democrat. Is there anything in particular that put you over the edge? So we were sort of already there, but certainly, Charlottesville Is the time when I said enough because right now in the Republican Party, if you're not a fan in the cult of Donald Trump, you're not welcome. And they will. They will tell you that you don't feel welcome. Oh, no, no, no, no. As a matter of fact, when we sit out there with our signs, One of the things we hear the most often is go home, and we're trying to figure out since we're at the end of our own driveway where home is supposed to be Arizona State Public Affairs professor, Dr Tom Riley says independence have turned this formerly bright red state purple could help push it blew this time around. As a third of the state's electorate. Independents are trending towards biting by a whopping 25 points in the latest New York Times, CNN poll. 53 to 28 What we're seeing is his general frustration to the divisiveness that is occurring in Washington and across United States and people are searching for a different way. That's especially noticeable among Latino voters. They're just taking it for granted and thinking, Okay, well, they're Latinos, and they're going to go ahead and lean Democrat That's not the case. Caroline Van Houston doesn't like how the Latino voters have traditionally been taken for granted. Born and raised in the Dominican Republic. She came to the U. S. During her college years. She voted for Obama in overweight and has ping Pong between parties ever since. Despite being disappointed in a lack of focus on the issues she will vote for biting. A lot of the Democratic Party has been neglecting to really addresses that issue of immigration and they're really up for grabs, and they're having a hard time. Making a decision on which way to go because no one is addressing the issues that matter to them. Most Maricopa County, which includes Phoenix, has by far the largest floating population in the state. The county went for Trump by three points in 2016. He follows through on what he says Barbie Ruin also voted for Gary Johnson 2016 but now likes what she's seen from President Trump, since Corona virus has come out our economy and state Fairly stable. And that to me is is astonishing, especially considering the number of people who are out of jobs because they can't go in. He's allowing the states to make the decisions for themselves. Which is what it should be The one thing we found all the voters we talked to here want Turn down the temperature a little bit. I pray to get back to a country where we can have conversations. What we don't agree on every issue, and we can still be friends. And I know that sounds whether cliche, but that's really my deepest prayer for this week. I'm Alex Percy and carefree Arizona. They will be right back after this from our ABC stations. More Americans turned a veces..
