Here is a story that we are hearing more and more of.
Lifelong Democrat Maurice Davis, the vice-president of the city council in Flint, Michigan, announced Wednesday that he is voting for President Donald Trump.
Davis announced his endorsement of Trump during a campaign event held by Vice President Mike Pence, Breitbart reported.
“God uses whoever he wants to, to bring His people out of whatever the problem have to be,” Davis said in a speech. “President Trump is full of hate? Let me tell you something, the Democrats is full of hate.”
Davis continued: “I’m tired — I’ve been a Democrat, I am a Democrat all my life, 64 years. Last four years, I voted for Hillary Clinton. This year, I decided to go with President Trump.”
Davis went on to say that “people are losing everything” and that when President Trump said, “‘What the hell you got to lose?’ he was talking to me.” Watch Davis’ speech:

A long time coming
As a Black man, Davis will now likely become a target for the Democrats for walking away.
We have seen time and again how the left attacks Black Americans who are Republican or who have supported or worked with President Trump. Probably most infamous of all is a line from Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, who said earlier this year: “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”
Davis told the crowd on Wednesday, “I’m not a bootlicker. I’m not an Uncle Tom. I’m none of those things. I’m somebody that’s in a poor, impoverished community.”
This is just one example of a lifelong Democrat who, fed up with the Democratic Party, is going to vote Republican. But this story could be much more than this: Davis could be one example of a general trend that we will see in this presidential election.
I, myself, know several lifelong Democrats who feel just as Davis does, and who, accordingly, are voting Republican. I am sure many of you do as well. This group could play a big role in selecting our next president.
