Thousands of Republicans leave party over its treatment of Trump

Thousands of registered Republican voters have changed their affiliation following the Capitol riots on Jan. 6, according to multiple reports.

In the week following the riot, 4,600 GOP voters in Colorado, 6,000 in North Carolina and 10,000 in Pennsylvania switched parties, according to NPR. Data from the Arizona Secretary of State’s office informed ABC News Thursday that 7,500 Republicans in Arizona have changed their affiliation.

The majority of Republicans leaving the party reportedly changed their status to unaffiliated, according to the reports.

Colorado Public Radio News analysis found that many Republicans said they left their party because they felt the GOP betrayed former President Donald Trump.
