How hate has become the GOP’s main political weapon

Denver conservative radio host Mandy Connell publicly changed her party affiliation from Republican to independent on her program this Monday, a week after giving a thoughtful and largely apolitical interview to Talkers Magazine.

As much as I hold conservative ideals and values in many, many ways, I will not be a part of the cult of Trump anymore. I don’t want people to say, ‘Why is your party doing this?’ I don’t want people to look at me and say, ‘What is wrong with your party?’ It’s not my party. It’s the party of Donald Trump in Colorado.”

Denver’s Channel 9 News, reporting on Connell’s leaving the GOP,  Monday:

Connell is one of 133 Republicans that changed their voter affiliation since Saturday. The majority switched to unaffiliated.”

Following the January 6 insurrection and coup attempt, The New York Times documented hundreds of thousands of Republicans across America leaving their party by going to the effort of changing their party registration.
