Do you know who your parents, your friends, your co-workers are voting for?

According to a report in The Guardian, there are a number of voters out there who don't feel quite comfortable publicly acknowledging their candidate of choice.

Back in March, The Guardian's Amber Jamieson heard from over 100 voters across the country who said they supported Donald Trump, but weren't quite ready to let everyone know. Recently, she checked back in with many of them and found mixed results. Some said their support for Trump strengthened, others switched to a different candidate. Still more said they continued to support Trump but were not yet comfortable with going public about their choice.

"I think people still struggle with this idea of whether they can be a strong public supporter if they are not from the traditional demographic of the Republican Party or of Donald Trump," said Jamieson.
