Trump Has Never Voted In A Republican Primary – The Daily Caller


A search of the New York state voter rolls shows that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has never cast a vote in a Republican presidential primary election in the state in which he has long been a resident.

Trump’s official voting records, obtained by the Daily Mail, show that the 69-year-old billionaire failed to vote in any Republican presidential primarydating back to 1989.

Similarly, there is no evidence showing that Trump bothered to vote in Democratic primaries, presidential or otherwise.

Records show that Trump has voted in a New York political party’s primaries for a candidate at any level on just two occasions.

The real estate tycoon voted in a September 2013 New York City mayoral primary and a September 2010 U.S. Senate special election primary. And that’s it.

The Republican presidential primaries in the state of New York occurred on or around “Super Tuesday” in 2008, 2004, 2000 and 1996. The state has been oracular in Republican politics, having chosen the last six eventual Republican candidates.

Trump has changed his party affiliation at least four times in the last 16 years — an average of once for each presidential election.

In 2009, Trump enthusiastically endorsed then-newly-minted President Barack Obama.

“We have a young, vibrant, smart president who, I think, is going to do a really good job,” the leading candidate for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination said on Fox News.

For years, Trump has also zealously praised Hillary Clinton as “really a very terrific woman.”

“I think she’s a very, very brilliant person, and as a senator in New York, she has done a great job,” he gushed in 2007. “Everybody loves her.”

In 2008, Trump applauded Obama’s selection of Clinton as his secretary of state nominee. “I think Hillary is a great appointment,” he said.

Trump has also given between $100,001 and $250,000 to the Clinton Foundation.
