Salty, I'm trying to decern your post better, but you are making no sense.
yeah I made a lot of mistakes in spelling. he's hired by some re-election campaign. and it does matter if he is not genuine. there is no vast exodus from the democrat party like there was the republican party. some may have voted for trump but trump lost the popular vote. I went on twitter and most of the walkaways are bots, paid flunkies or people jumping on a bandwagon they already rode on.
its fake news

No, the #WalkAway Movement Isn't Run by Russian Bots. But It Is a Major Threat to the Democratic Party

Quote:
Democrats want you to think the #WalkAway campaign is a right-wing propaganda effort propped up by a legion of Russian bots, but don't you believe it. Brandon Straka's WalkAway Facebook group now has over 106,000 members -- and anyone who takes the time to read their stories will quickly be disabused of the notion that bots could produce them.

The #WalkAway stories are compelling and often quite moving. People from every imaginable background -- black, white, Hispanic, rich, poor, straight, gay, trans, and even celebrity -- explain why they left the party. Most of these people voted Democrat their whole lives; most have lost friends for supporting President Donald Trump. Most have also found solace in the #WalkAway community.

In 2016, the Democrat media complex ignored the massive grassroots movement that came out in support for Trump, dismissing his massive rallies and popularity online as somehow insignificant. Now they are dismissing the #WalkAway campaign as a propaganda movement. Once again, something genuine and significant is happening across the nation, and it's getting ignored or ridiculed by media elites. It doesn't matter. Like a snowball rolling downhill, the movement is getting bigger and bigger with each day and there's nothing an elite can do to stop it.

In story after story, former Democrats -- including a popular, Grammy-nominated musician -- describe how they finally saw through the lies, smears, duplicity, and hypocrisy that infects today's Democratic Party. And how they couldn't help but notice the outrageous double standard in the way liberals and conservatives are treated. For people who remotely pay attention, the corrupt stench of the party is getting harder and harder to ignore.

I'd believe that, if Democrats haven't been doing extremely well thus far this year and have been recruiting strong moderate and progressive candidates across the country. Of course people join and leave parties all the time, but it's not some mass exodus that's going to destroy the Democratic Party. It would be like looking at the Never Trump movement and calling it a total death knell of the GOP.

Also, willing participants doesn't mean it's not a Russian operation. They can #NotABot all day and tell us stories about how they used to be such strong Democrats (Except in a lot of of the FB posts, they weren't, and many were already conservatives and some Libertarian.)until Trump's magic bullsh-t elixir turned them into MAGA Warriors, but I'm not buying it. On top of that PJ Media (lol) is off on the numbers a bit, unless they did decline from 106,000 to 97,000 between when the article was constructed and now.

Who's reelection campaign?

What you are doing is kinda sorta blabbering and kinda sorta recycling statements you heard elsewhere.

No vast exodus? Obama won handily. twice. Clinton lost. So somebody must have walked away. Recycling the poplar vote makes my point. There is no popular federal vote for President.

You went on Twitter and the walkaways were:

"bots, paid flunkies or people jumping on a bandwagon they already rode on."

You can tell that just from going on Twitter? You're good.

Wally, the Russian thingy has run its course. If you expect to do well in November it's time for a new campaign theme. Bbbut Trump, and Bbbutt the Russians won't work. It's just possible that near center Democrats and independents are figuring that out.

Are liberals required to ignore facts or do they simply choose to do that on their own?
Cnredd showed you the facts and your response is, "I'd believe that, if...". SMH

I know, but doesn't take that much skill if you are familiar with the way real people vs bots/hirelings comment on political forums, yahoo, YouTube, news sites, Facebook, twitter...et cetera...
