It is an understatement to say that many of President Trump’s former supporters in the Alt-Right, especially those derided as “wignats,” are fed up with the GOP:

It’s not “blackpilling.” It’s:
1. Calling things as you see them, no rose-tinted glasses
2. Liberating yourself from lies, scams, false hope, & ludicrous theories
3. Flipping off an evil system that deserves to die
Trump is destroying himself by betraying us. Embrace the justice

Why not? It's not like the GOP has anything interesting to say about issues we care about. If you want to hear about topics such as flooding America with cheap labor, regime change or forcing LGBT on the world then the GOP is the party to be in. https://t.co/YGPGkueaTz

I’m with @AIPAC.
A group that advocates for a strong relationship between the US and Israel is a fundamentally pro-American organization.

Wrapped up the first week of SoCo in the Morning strong! Had a really good conversation with @EmperorInvictus about the latest news, "Wignat" vs Amnat, and protecting yourself while engaged in IRL activities.https://t.co/WqscBAjCam

JUST IN: 400 U.S. troops will stay behind in Syria– not 200 as the White House said last night a statement: U.S. official. Friday morning, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders called the 200 number a “rough estimate.”

Over the past few weeks, these “wignats” have been flirting with supporting Tulsi Gabbard’s presidential campaign, but lately enthusiasm for Aloha Nationalism has chilled in light of her many recent politically correct statements. Still, the discontent is there and very strong and these people are looking for a new outlet to cast an anti-Trump vote in the 2020 election.

President Trump has never once acknowledged his White supporters who drove his victory in 2016. It is like we don’t exist. Meanwhile, the Trump administration can’t seem to shut up about record unemployment for Hispanics, Asians, African-Americans and women.
Deaths now outnumber births among white people in more than half the states in the country. Much of this is low birth rates and white men dying from substance abuse and suicide. Our life expectancy has declined for 3 years. We need to do much more. https://t.co/zFRAkFY7FU

There is some buzz now on Twitter about Andrew Yang’s 2020 campaign.
Andrew Yang not only acknowledged the suicide and opioid epidemic, but specifically acknowledged it as a crisis in White America. This is more than Donald Trump has ever done – opioid overdoses have continued their climb to new records under the Trump presidency.
Anyway, it is remarkable that Yang is talking about White Americans as an interest group and has some policies to address these problems. There are a lot of people who are grateful for that and are now open to hearing what he has to say. While it is doubtful that most will ultimately vote for Yang in the Democratic primary, the fact that so many “Far Right” voters are even entertaining the idea of voting for Tulsi or Yang shows the degree to which Trump has lost their support.
