The vast majority of the electorate see political races like sports competitions where you pick either the Yankees or the Mets for example. They see no harm is switching preference.
Most members of the GOP, particularly the leadership, go through this much evaluation process; "Humm, does the candidate place an "R" by their name? If so then I'll support them." It is just like saying: "Does that person wear a Yankee uniform? If so, I'll cheer for them."
Every member the Washington State's congressional delegation who claims to be a republican is actually a democrat infiltrator who runs, calling them self a republican but votes with the democrats. When I call this fact to the attention of party leaders, they don't care as long as "republicans" win the elections.
