Jim Farr is a staunch 77-year-old Republican in the sunny southern state of Florida, which lures retirees from all over America — a powerful political bloc.
As the country’s presidential election draws nearer, Farr dislikes the idea of voting for a Democrat. But the idea of giving President Donald Trump another term irks him even more. Farr, who lives in Kissimmee in the central part of the state, is a devout Christian who considers abortion akin to “murdering babies” and believes in what he calls compassionate capitalism. He says it is not the Republican party that has lost a supporter — the president has. “He does not seem to care for truth. Truth is very important to me. He does not check facts,” said Farr, who is disappointed with the man he voted for in 2016.
