A group of voters who backed President Donald Trump in 2016 aren’t so keen on him now, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal, but they still intend to vote for Republicans in the upcoming midterm elections. Down the line, though, they might not support Trump.

The Journal has periodically interviewed members of a group who ambivalently voted for Trump in the 2016 election, and spoke with eight people for its most recent report.

Carol Jansson, a mother of three in Acworth, Ga., said she mostly voted for Trump because she wanted a conservative change on the Supreme Court – something the president delivered on. Still, Trump is too divisive.

“My issue with him was that he was a loudmouth and not a politician, so he never worked with people to get things done; I still think that’s an issue,” she said. “I think he is a lightning rod and I don’t see any nonpartisan stuff happening with him there. I’d like to see things actually get done in Congress.”

Deborah Forster, a fitness instructor in Marysville, Mich., told the Journal she will vote a straight GOP ticket because she feels Supreme Court Associate Judge Brett Kavanaugh was mistreated by Democrats during the confirmation process but says she is often off-put by Trump’s remarks.

“The man has done a lot of things he said he was going to do,”  said Forster. “But do I hope Republicans put up somebody else next time? Absolutely. I hope to goodness I don’t ever have to vote for him again.”

There are supporters – including John Brickner, a retired bricklayer and superintendent in Wilber, Neb. Who touts Trump’s trade and fiscal policies.

“Why would anyone want to return to a Democrat economy?” Brickner said.
