Liberal MSNBC traveled to Dayton, Ohio, a city that went for Trump in 2016, but only by 1 % of the vote. MSNBC reporter, Vaughn Hillyard, asked voters in the must-win state of Ohio how convicted felon Michael Cohen’s testimony to the House Oversight Committee, affected their views on President Trump. They interviewed a variety of voters and unfortunately, for the Democrat Party propaganda network, they probably didn’t get the answers they were hoping for.
Hillyard asked a Democrat Tom Payne if the hearing yesterday “eroded” his “trust in President Trump?”
Payne responded, “No, I’m a Democrat—registered Democrat.” Hillyard appeared to be surprised, asking Payne, “You voted for President Trump?” Payne answered with confidence, “Yes!” Hillyard pushed back, saying, “Do you plan to vote for him again in 2020?” Payne nodded, saying, “Yes.”
Next, Hillyard asked Dayton resident Tom Gray about the hearing. Gray said he “wasn’t expecting much” from the hearing, telling the MSNBC host that he thought the hearings were “a waste of time.”
“He made some big allegations against the president,” Hillyard said, referencing Michael Cohen’s testimony before the House Oversight Committee. “Did you vote for President Trump?
“Yes,” Joyce Hargenrather said.
“Does this erode your confidence in him?” Hillyard asked.
“No, not at all,” Hargenrather responded.
“What would it take for you to vote for a Democrat over President Trump in 2020?” Hillyard asked.
“Oh my goodness. Never, never, never a Democrat,” a disgusted Hargenrather replied.
Trump won Ohio by more than an 8 percent margin in 2016, and he carried Montgomery County, which contains Dayton, by just under 1 percent. The president’s approval rating in Ohio was split in 2018, with 48 percent expressing approval and 48 percent expressing disapproval, according to Gallup.
