We’ve been told with great frequency by the media that Donald Trump is so controversial that even some reliably Republican voters might switch and vote for Hillary Clinton. And yet, at this weekend’s Trump Rolling Thunder rally in Washington D.C., something quite opposite was observed.
According to Newsmax, quite a number of Democrats and independents were among the Trump supporters who were at the candidate’s appearance Sunday at Rolling Thunder, the annual gathering of motorcycling veterans at the Lincoln Memorial.
“I’m a Democrat and I’m voting for Trump,” said Roger Rollins, a U.S. Army veteran who came from Clarksburg, West Virginia, for Rolling Thunder.
Although a Democrat, Rollins admitted that back in 2012, he didn’t vote for Obama. But Rollins also said he “didn’t like either of the Bushes, and I don’t want Hillary Clinton. I don’t trust her at all.”
Rollins said he voted for Bill Clinton, but felt that Obama “killed the coal business” and engaged in “too much s*** overseas.” Trump, he says, “will straighten things like this out.”
Another Democrat — Bill Medina from Gainesville, Virginia — agreed.
“Trump is a billionaire, and no one is going to buy him,” Medina said. While he previously voted for Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, Medina plans to go with The Donald this fall.

“The economy needs to operate differently so we won’t lose jobs,” Medina, a former defense plant employee, said. “Trump understands this. And he’ll balance the budget so there is money to protect our shores.”
Independents like Alan Jones of Nashville also showed up at the event. He said he plans on voting for “whoever I think will do the best job.” When asked if he planned to vote for Trump, he responded, “Yes, in part because Hillary Clinton is a big liar. I liked her husband a lot more than I like her!”
I can’t be sure Bill Clinton was any better than Hillary, but I am sure about one thing — it looks like Donald Trump is getting a lot more support than the media thought he was going to get from Democrats and independents.
