Conservative GOP Strategist tells Republicans they must vote for the Democrat in any race where they are faced with a Trumpist candidate. And she did not need too much prodding.
GOP Strategist Margaret Hoover could not be more explicit, vote Democratic if ...
This Conservative GOP Strategist, Margaret Hoover, gave a directive to real Republicans on Real Time with Bill Maher that they better heed. Hoover appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher. They spent some time discussing the degeneracy of the Trump administration.
During the program when discussing Trumpist candidates, an interesting but important exchange occurred between Bill Maher and Margaret Hoover.
"A lot of times in the past when Republicans didn't like a candidate," Bill Maher said. "Like many who didn't like Donald Trump, they said, 'OK, but when I go into the voting booth, I am casting a vote for Ronald Reagan, or I am writing in Betsy Ross.' Mitt Romney said he is writing in his wife's name. Don't you have to vote for the Democrat?"
"Yes," GOP Strategist Hoover replied. "You have to vote your principle if there is a Trump person in your district."
"But there are only two candidates," Bill Maher interjected.
"Then you have to vote for the Democrat in that race," Hoover replied.
Hoover is in effect given die-hard Republicans the path to neuter Donald Trump. She is telling the sensible people in her Party who recognize that Trump and his political followers are a clear and present danger to America. No strategist will go on national TV and tell their base to vote for someone in the other Party.
More Republicans must come out between now and the election and encourage their people to vote country over their party in 2018. If they do this, the Blue Wave will ensure that the destruction the Trump administration is inflicting on the country is attenuated.
