About 1,000 Ohio Democrats have defected to the Republican party, with election officials saying some did so to vote for Donald Trump. "We are seeing something this election cycle I’ve never seen before to this degree," said Mark Munroe, the Mahoning County Republican chairman. "Every day I take phone calls or get voice messages from people saying they’ve been Democrats all their life and they’ve had it. They want to vote for Donald Trump. I’m surprised at the volume of inquiries we’re getting. It’s remarkable."
