Some Republicans and former Trump administration officials are expressing support for President Biden over former President Trump in a potential general election rematch, citing concerns about Trump’s impact on U.S. democracy.

Polling indicates a willingness among some Republicans to vote for Biden, potentially influencing the November election.

Sarah Matthews, a former press aide on Trump’s 2020 campaign, said, “While I’ve never voted for a Democrat a day in my life, I would support Biden over Trump if he becomes the GOP nominee. I won’t support someone who refused to participate in a peaceful transfer of power, tried to overthrow a free and fair election, and incited a mob to attack the U.S. Capitol.”

Ammar Moussa, a Biden campaign spokesperson, wrote, “President Biden ran for president to unite the country, and has governed for all Americans with red states and blue states benefiting from the historic infrastructure legislation, lower costs on prescription drugs and a boom in manufacturing jobs.”

“We welcome the support of everyone who is concerned about the existential threat that Donald Trump and extremists pose to our freedom and democracy,” they continued.

While Trump currently leads in national and swing state polling, the election may depend on each candidate’s ability to mobilize their base.

Several prominent Republicans, including former Rep. Adam Kinzinger and Sen. Mitt Romney, have indicated they would support Biden over Trump.

Former Rep. Adam Kinzinger said, “I think it’s highly likely that it’s gonna be Biden against Trump. And in that case, there is no question who I would support. I believe in America way more than I believe in the Republican Party.”

Anthony Scaramucci said, “This really is going to be a battle for democracy, this one.”

Former Rep. Liz Cheney said, “There are some conservatives who are trying to make this claim that somehow Biden is a bigger risk than Trump.”

“My view is I disagree with a lot of Joe Biden’s policies,” she continued.

“We can survive bad policies. We cannot survive torching the Constitution,” she added.

David Axelrod said, “The thing that I would look at if I were the Biden campaign is that third of people who say, no, the election was legitimate, yes, I think that President Trump would be unfit if he were convicted of a crime.”

“It seems to me among that group, there are people who might consider voting for Biden,” he continued.

The willingness of some Republicans to cross party lines underscores the potential impact of their support on the election’s outcome.
