When Jim Hendren, a longtime Arkansas state legislator, announced on Thursday that he was leaving the GOP, it marked the latest in a flurry of recent defections from the party.
Tens of thousands of Republicans across the country have changed their registrations in the weeks since the riot at the Capitol — many of them, like Hendren, becoming independents. Other former party officials are discussing forming a third party.
The article goes on to state the following:
But if the Republicans’ reasons for leaving the GOP are obvious — primarily, disdain for former President Donald Trump and his stranglehold on the party — the sobering reality confronting them on the other side is that there’s really no place to go.
The report notes that the anti-Trump conservatives are having a problem finding a home, as the Democrat Party continues to move leftward, but those who want to “recapture the GOP from within” find themselves vastly outnumbered.
And starting a third party from scratch requires “gigantic sums of money,” along with all the issues of trying to get on the ballot in every state, when state laws are really only designed for the two major parties, Politico wrote.
Former Illinois Rep. Joe Walsh admitted that he and others who have bailed from the Republican Party are “kind of in the wilderness.”
Republican Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson said in several CNN interviews over the weekend that he would not support Donald Trump if he runs for president again in 2024, and declared that “it’s time” to move on to different voices in the Republican Party.
“Trump should not define our future,” Hutchinson declared.
However, a Rasmussen Reports survey last week revealed that nearly three-quarters of Republican voters believe the GOP should be “more like former President Trump” moving forward.
