“What would I do?” asked a handful of Republican voters on a town hall-style meeting this week.
The Republican National Committee asked the town hall attendees, including many who had recently left the party, to talk about their future as they wait to see if Donald Trump will be their nominee.
“You’re not going to make a lot of money doing what you do, you’re not really in a position to get elected,” one woman said.
Others responded with similar sentiments.
“It’s hard to think of anything that would be worse than going to work for Donald Trump,” said a man who declined to give his name.
“You are doing nothing.
What are you doing?” the man asked.
A woman who also did not give her name said she had to quit her job at McDonalds after the company began firing workers for their political views.
Another woman said she wanted to start her own business but that it would cost too much.
And then there were the people who didn’t want to be interviewed.
“I’m really tired of talking about it.
We are all tired of hearing about it,” one said.
“It’s just so stupid.”
The RNC’s event drew a crowd of about 50 people, but the panelists weren’t allowed to answer questions.
There were a few questions that were thrown out by the panel, including whether they were prepared for a president who said he would not be impeached.
A few women did offer their take on the election results, saying that Trump has the support of the white working class.
But the most heated exchange came over the topic of abortion.
One woman who did not want to give her full name said that her decision to get an abortion is a personal decision that she will make for herself.
A woman asked about whether she would vote for Trump if he were to win the election.
“The first question is, are you willing to give up your life for a man you don’t even know?” the woman said, before being interrupted by several men in the crowd.
“That is absolutely ridiculous.
What I’m saying is that if you are willing to live and die for somebody else, you shouldn’t have to live for somebody you don,t even know,” the woman continued.
Another woman asked what she would do if her child got pregnant.
“There’s a big difference between a fetus and a baby.
There’s no difference,” the man responded.
“There’s no right or wrong, there’s no reason for someone to have to have a baby to survive.
So I’m just really sick of it.”
Some of the Republican women on the panel had never attended a GOP town hall before.
“They’ve never held one,” said one of the panel’s panelists, Michael Stokes.
“And I’ve never been in one before.
And I’m not going anywhere.”
He continued:”There are a lot more women out there who are not participating in these forums.”
