Ohio Republican: “I’ve Never Seen Such Hate This Year [As] In The Republican Party”
Retired Ohio businessman Wayne Butterfass says he’s voted Republican all his life, but can’t believe what he’s seeing this year in the Republican Party.
“Obama was handed an economy on the skids, after eight years of Bush,” Butterfass said in an email. “All he ever did was think about war. I’m afraid Romney will do the same, especially the trickle-down theory.
“I don’t know why any woman or gay would ever vote for Romney. All you have to do is look at the Republican platform. I’ve never seen such HATE this year in the Republican Party, national or state.”
As Sarah Jones notes at PoliticusUSA, “Wayne Butterfass is not alone is his disgust with his former party. According to Stan Greenberg, the Republican Party has lost 5 points in voter identification over the past month. He writes, ‘Contempt for the Republicans is pushing Democrats into the lead, not only in the presidential race but across Senate and likely many House races as well’.”
