A self-identified “lifelong conservative” told MSNBC on Sunday that she is considering voting for a Democratic presidential candidate because she is disgusted with President Donald Trump.
In an interview at the Iowa State Fair, Kate Miller told MSNBC that she had chosen Kamala Harris in an unofficial fairground poll.
“I’m a lifelong conservative,” Miller revealed. “I actually campaigned door to door for Chuck Grassley his first year as a Senate candidate. But I cannot vote for Donald Trump. He is not a conservative. I don’t think he’s a good man and when you watch a cabinet member after cabinet member fall away from him, I just can’t vote for him.”
Miller said that she wanted a Democratic candidate who “is reasonable on borders.”
“I’m an educator and we’ve got to do something about education so that’s the person that I’m looking for,” she continued. “It’s really hard because there are all these stump speeches and I don’t know what they believe.”
Miller’s daughter, Taylor, was in agreement.
“I can’t vote for Donald Trump and if there was a better conservative, I would probably vote for them,” Taylor Miller explained. “But he says so many things that are just absolutely disgusting and tweeting foreign policy is is not presidential enough.”
She added: “I really want a Democratic candidate that I can get behind and support and like my mom said, isn’t completely crazy on immigration and really will make things like schools safer so that I can have a place here in my future and just make the country better.”

Republicans love the Constitution — until it applies to them: Conservative columnist
Conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot unleashed on President Donald Trump's latest scandal he's calling Ukraine-gate. But when it comes to Republicans, he called them outright complicit.
In his Sunday column, Boot noted that a mob boss doesn't have to overtly say “pay up, or we will destroy your store” to be guilty of extortion. In Trump's case, he tends to say things in a way that it is understood what he wants people to do, according to former "fixer" Michael Cohen.
‘Time to go to court’: Former prosecutors explain how Democrats can still uncover whistleblower scandal
The White House is doing whatever it takes to obstruct any investigation into a recent whistleblower complaint, but two former prosecutors have ideas for what Congress should do next.
This week it was revealed that President Donald Trump said something so concerning to a foreign leader that a senior intelligence officer filed a complaint. The officer then filed for whistleblower protections. A series of actions are outlined in the law for the next steps, but Trump and his appointed officials in the White House have worked to stymie the process the law requires.
Hate for Trump sets new record of Americans who can’t stand a president
A new poll shows a record number of Americans can't stand the president of the United States.
According to the most recent NBC News/Wall Street Journal public opinion poll, an astounding 69 percent of Americans don't like Trump personally.
During the early 2000s, President George W. Bush enjoyed the benefit of Americans finding him likable and wanting to "have a beer" with the sober leader. That measure of "likability" has been a kind of inspiration for political leaders searching for voters based not on issues but on personality.
