Alyssa Farah Griffin, newly-minted cohost of ABC’s “The View,” conceded on Monday that despite being a Republican, there were limited circumstances under which she could see herself voting for a Democrat.

Griffin was recently announced as the midday talk show’s newest permanent cohost, hired to fill the vacancy left by Meghan McCain — and she, along with cohost Ana Navarro were supposed to add Republican voices to the majority far-left panel.

Cohost Whoopi Goldberg began the conversation by asking whether it might be time for a third party in the United States — and Griffin appeared to agree with that assessment.

“Is it — is it time for a third party?” Goldberg asked.

“I think it might be, because the way the parties are structured now and the primary system, we don’t elect the most qualified people,” Griffin replied, going on to argue that neither party reflected an America that was more moderate than either party’s extreme. “We elect the people who cater the most to the base, which is the minority of both parties, rather than people who are most likely to want to get things done, to work across the aisle.”

“I’ll say this, I agree about halfway with Liz Cheney,” Griffin continued, apparently referencing the outgoing Wyoming Congresswoman’s claims that she would no longer be Republican if the party nominated former President Donald Trump in 2024. “I will full-stop never support an election denier, I still want to work from within with the Republican Party.”

“I believe politics is cyclical, and the Donald Trump moment which has consumed all of us for so long will eventually come to an end,” Griffin added. “And I hope to influence the party from within. The Donald Trump party is not a conservative party, it’s a populist, nationalist, right-wing party that I have about as much in common with as I do Bernie Sanders.”

Griffin went on to say that she’d like to see a Republican Party that supported more of the things she agreed with, concluding that, on a case-by-case basis, she could see the possibility of voting for a Democrat if the party did not move that way.

“I’d be open to it on a case-by-case basis,” she said. “I’d have to look at their policies, and that’s kind of where I am.”
