After three years in office, President Donald Trump's average approval rating has never risen above 50 percent.

While he enjoys a high approval rating among the Republican party, a new hashtag trending on Twitter is highlighting those who were so repulsed by him that they left the party all together.

The hashtag #ILeftTheGOP, apparently started by former Conservative writer Cheri Jacobus, shot to one of the top trends on Twitter.


Jacobus left the GOP as soon as Trump won the Republican nomination in the summer of 2016.

Others left around the same time as Jacobus did, noting that the GOP betrayed its principles when it made Trump the face of the party.




Others left after Trump's numerous scandals and lies became too much.





Make no mistake: though many are sharing the stories that led them to leave the GOP, it by no means indicates that Trump will be easy to beat in November.

With remaining Republicans—including those in the Senate—unwilling to rebuke Trump, the answer will be left up to the voters.
