Skip to comments.Four months in, ‘Seattle’s only Trump voter’ has his doubts

Last years election made Seattles Tod Steward a minor celebrity. If by celebrity you mean the kind that everybody hates, he laughs.
Not here, though. In Canada. The 53-year-old First Hill resident has found a small niche in Canada as the most peculiar, and certainly most elusive, species of our time.
Hes Seattles Only Trump Voter.
OK thats not actually a trademarked phrase, nor is it numerically true. To be precise, 32,361 Seattleites besides Steward also cast votes for Donald Trump last November.
But the percentage was so historically low only 8 percent of the citys 385,000 votes and so few were open about their Trump support, that by default Steward has become a symbolic one and only.
Steward, a public relations consultant, said he voted for Obama twice. So he is representative of a slice of thought that swung the election to Trump, decisively so in the Midwest. Namely, he is an independent voter who was willing to overlook all the controversy to get outsider-driven change.
I was drawn to Trump because Ive read some of his books and hes a builder who gets things done, Steward said. I knew he wasnt a rule follower you could tell that from the campaign. But I figured he would put people in there who were doers. I thought he would govern from the middle. I didnt think it would be anywhere near this chaotic.
I havent given up on him, not yet, he says. Im not off the Trump bandwagon. You could say Ive got one foot off.
Well check back. It might be that Seattles Only Trump Voter ends up being the one that matters.

Seattle has become a pathetic place.
It’s not alone.
No regrets, one only has to look at who his opposition was.
I will try to hold him to his campaign promises, though.
He must build the wall.
He must restore the rule of law.
And that means he must end the illegal DACA program as promised.
Wow. San Francisco gave him 9%. We are more conservative than Seattle?
Been to Seatle....its a shit hole.
The Deplorables I know love Trump and admire all that he’s doing to restore our county and to take it back from the insane Liberals.
Fake News and more Fake News 24/7. I believe that Hitler’s propaganda machine would have hired all the MSM scum and Capos and they, IMO, would have fit right into the Third Reich and felt at home.
When I was there, like 15 years ago, I was surprised (and disappointed) at the very low number of attractive females. And this was summertime, no rain, nice weather.
Aside from a couple of Asian cuties, there was nothing, I mean NOTHING to catch one’s eye.
No wonder it’s so liberal. Ugly birds of a feather . . .
The guy sounds like a weakling.
Well...have you seen what passes for a man in Seattle these days?
If I lived so near a potential volcano erruption &/or earthquake that could “leave no stone resting upon another,” I’d straighten up.
I live here. Ugly feminazis and malnourished vegans. No attractive women to speak of.
New Orleans removes Civil War memorial statues and Seattle has Lenin to be proud of...
Oh, America...Where have you gone????
Exactly right. I agree wholeheartedly.
LOL, I hadn’t thought of that.
I will say, the women on the Left do seem to be a homely lot, or if attractive, absolutely brain dead.
And the number of Hillary voters there who now regret their votes is probably 1,000 fold.
If you just look at the voting precincts within city limits, not suburbs, the largest U.S. city to go for Donald Trump was Oklahoma City which is the 27th largest city in the nation.
Trump lost the city of Jacksonville, Florida (#13) by 495 votes and he lost the city of Fort Worth, Texas (#17) by 1,029 votes.
