    "Davis was the sole member of the Congressional Black Caucus to vote against Obama’s healthcare reform legislation in 2010. He also ran a relatively conservative campaign for the governorship of Alabama in 2010" In other words, Davis is a conservative at heart, but because of the intense peer pressure from other blacks to be a democrat, he threw away his core beliefs just to fit in. Obama's clear statist ideology shook the scales from this man's eyes.

    Don't know. Never met the guy, but I don't blame him for leaving the democratic party either.

    An honest man. He says it like it is.

    “On the specifics, I have regularly criticized an agenda that would punish businesses and job creators with more taxes just as they are trying to thrive again,” he said. “I have taken issue with an administration that has lapsed into a bloc by bloc appeal to group grievances when the country is already too fractured: frankly, the symbolism of Barack Obama winning has not given us the substance of a united country.”

    Because most of those who called themselves Democrats are really Marxist Socialists. Davis sees that and knows that the Party has left him.

    His record of opposition to specific democratic tactics of polarizing and using the black vote are well known and something he's mentioned before. The article reveals it was one of the first things he mentioned when he was asked why.

    “I have taken issue with an administration that has lapsed into a bloc by bloc appeal to group grievances when the country is already too fractured: frankly, the symbolism of Barack Obama winning has not given us the substance of a united country.”

    He has also been a visible opponent of Obamacare, and the party abused him over that. As he mentions: “On the specifics, I have regularly criticized an agenda that would punish businesses and job creators with more taxes just as they are trying to thrive again”.

    So those are two reasons. Probably also some overtures from the Republicans.

    Jon Huntsman, Nathan Fletcher, Michael Fumento, Arlen Specter - lots of repubs have left their party recently too... Davis was talking about leaving years ago when he lost his gubernatorial bid.
