A man who claimed to be a lifelong Democrat said he was switching political allegiances and joining the GOP after watching the Republican National Convention and the “heartfelt” way it handled the topic of God.
“I just want to say that after watching the convention tonight … I am definitely changing my vote to Republican,” a caller who identified himself as Rick, a Democrat from Lorain, Ohio, told C-SPAN on Monday. “I’m going to file with the Republican Party now.”
There’s no way to verify the caller’s claim of being a Democrat with the limited information he offered.
But Rick said he was impressed by how speakers at the RNC, which kicked off Monday, embraced God.
“It was the heartfelt way they came across to the American people. I was really touched by the number of times they used the word ‘God.’ They put God into everything,” he said. “The people on the Democratic side, at their convention — acted like they were pushing God right out of it, And that had a lot to do with changing my mind.”
President Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in Ohio in 2016 by more than 8 percentage points, but she beat him in Lorain County by less than 200 votes.
