Most Popular Democrats That Were Once Republicans

List Criteria: U.S. Democrats who were once affiliated with the Republican party

These popular current Democrats were at one time proud and active members of the Republican Party. Democratic Politicians from all across the US, have changed their mind and flipped sides of the isle for one reason or another. This is a list of the most popular names in Democratic Party, members who were former members of the other major party in the US, the GOP. The list includes former ultra-Liberal House of Representative Michael Forbes. Also, in this list is former & f*ture Alabama candidate for Governor and NBA Hall of Famer, Charles Barkley, who was a registered Democrat who converted over to the Republican Party in 1995 and again in 2008. We can’t forget Mr. Flip-Flop, former long-time Republican Senator Arlen Specter and who was ousted as a Democrat in 2009 and then voted out office in 2011. This list of Democrats who were once Republicans might be shorter than the list of Republicans who were once Democrats but it still includes some popular names. Switching political affiliation dates back a few centuries as judges and governors looked to win influence over their representatives and senators to gain political power across the isles of Congress and in their districts. Vote for who you think is the most influential Democrat that used to be a Rep. And if you find a popular democrat who isn't featured, add him to the bottom of our list and rank ‘em up!
