Singles who smile when they hear President-elect Donald Trump say he wants to “make America great again” are flocking to a dating website for like-minded voters.

Businessman Dave Goss started TrumpSingles.com over the summer with the expectation that it had an expiration date of Nov. 8. Republican Donald Trump’s Election Day win over Democrat Hillary Clinton has turned his short-term money maker into a full-time job.

“Business is great!” Mr. Goss told The Hollywood Reporter on Friday. “After he won, we’ve consistently had people sign up every single day. We never expected him to win — at least I didn’t.”

Mr. Goss, a former coordinator for “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette,” told the entertainment magazine that TrumpSingles has over 12,000 active users, many who pay a $4.95 monthly subscription for unlimited use.

“We got a little slow going from mid-October through November, and I was really worried,” the businessman told THR. “But as soon as he won, people signed up and paid to join. It has completely revitalized the site. […] For some people, going on dates and finding out that they supported Trump was a deal killer. That’s not the case for our users.”

TrumpSingles cannot yet tout any marriages directly linked to its creation, but Mr. Goss said that he has received positive feedback from users on their new relationships.
