“Freepers (and those out there who think like Freepers) are not a decisive majority in the Republican electorate. Not even close.
Polls seem to have disappeared from FR but they were still around in 2008. Most polls showed support for Tancredo, Duncan and Thompson. The primarys were dominated by McCain, Huckabee and Romney.”
So, the only conclusion possible is that an electorate to which the universal franchise has been extended, is infinitely pliable, by application of the ruses of the demogogue.
Since the dawn of history.
