Trump faces mounting defections from a once-loyal group: older white voters

Protesters hold signs as President Donald Trump arrives at Trump National Golf Club, Sunday, June 28, 2020, in Sterling, Va.

Clifford Wagner, an 80-year-old Republican in Tucson, Ariz., never cared for President Donald Trump.

He supported Jeb Bush in the 2016 presidential primary race and cast a protest vote in the general election for Gary Johnson, the Libertarian nominee. An Air Force veteran, Wagner described the Trump presidency as a mortifying experience: His friends in Europe and Japan tell him the United States has become "the laughingstock of the world."

This year, Wagner said he would register his opposition to Trump more emphatically than he did in 2016. He plans to vote for Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee, and hopes the election is a ruinous one for the Republican Party.
