A lot has been written since Election Day about people who didnít vote at all and wish they had because they were unhappy with the results. And a lot more has been written about those who cast their vote for the winner and came to regret it. (There is even a popular Twitter account called @Trump_Regrets with more than a quarter of a million followers.) And there is talk of hushed Trump support, people who voted for him but donít admit that to pollsters or their social circles.
But what of those who might be called ďDonny-Come-LatelysĒ? People who did not support the candidate on Nov. 8, but now, 100 days in, find that they do?
There are probably not a lot of them. No national polls count them in particular, but Trumpís historically low approval rating indicates there has not been a surge of conversions. They are hard to find for interviews. When Yahoo put out an invitation on social media there were far more jokes about unicorns than there were people raising their hands. ďI donít believe such a person could possibly existĒ was one typical response.
They do. And their reasons for changing their minds provide a glimpse at how the messages of this young administration are being heard by one slice of the population.
Notably, most of those who shifted did so not because they came to look more favorably upon Trump but because they now look less favorably upon his opposition. https://www.yahoo.com/news/contrarians-didnt-vote-trump-now-090051867.html
