Trump Supporters Are Reportedly Ditching Their MAGA Hats for Andrew Yang

In 2016, the “Make America Great Again” slogan and the merchandise that bore it became a cultural phenomenon. Now, some former Trump supporters are reportedly ditching their MAGA hats for Andrew Yang’s MATH hats.

Over the last few months, Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang has been developing quite a significant surge in popularity. While some media pundits scoff at his $1,000-a-month “freedom dividend” and other “unorthodox” ideas, more and more voters are opening up to his proposals that aim to resolve income disparity.

It is evident that his platform resonates with most middle-class Americans, winning over support from both the liberal and conservative groups. As recent polls have suggested, Yang’s appeal appears to be extending over to the other side.

During the campaigns leading up to the 2016 U.S. presidential elections, the Trump campaign spent more on making the now iconic MAGA hats than on polling, consultants or television commercials. MAGA merch worked wonders for Trump and is still bringing in an incredible amount of money for his re-election campaign.

This time around, as Yang’s “Make America Think Harder” slogan gains traction on social media and in pop culture, the Yang campaign is able to chip away the masses who brought Trump to power.

In a recent interview with The Telegraph, the 44-year-old entrepreneur explained why some Republicans might be jumping over to the Yang Gang ship.

“I’m peeling off Trump supporters,” he was quoted as saying. “There were many people who voted for Donald Trump because they believed his solutions, but his solutions were garbage and nonsense.”

“They’re attracted to me because I’m talking about the same problems. I’m running to solve problems that got Trump elected. It means, if I’m the Democrat nominee, we will win, and most Democrats want a nominee who’s going to win.”
