    The Facts

    • Elon Musk, the billionaire CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, has announced his intention to vote Republican in an upcoming election. Musk did not specify whether he meant the 2022 midterm elections or the 2024 presidential election.

    • The remarks came during a virtual panel at a tech conference in Miami, when he claimed to have "historically" voted "overwhelmingly for Democrats." He asserted that the Democratic party is now "too much captured by the unions."


    The Spin

    Right narrative

    Political moderates like Musk are inevitably flocking to the GOP, which is more in touch with the true needs of the American people. It's nearly impossible to stand by and vote for today's radical Democrats. Welcome, Elon!

    Left narrative

    Elon Musk is a perfect fit with the Republican party: another out-of-touch, misogynist billionaire who denied the risks of COVID, compared one of our closest allies to Hitler, and continually engages in securities fraud using his favorite bully pulpit, Twitter - which he now intends to buy. There's reason to suspect that his interests in the well being of Democratic voters are insincere.
