Those pure "conservatives" gave America eight years of Bubba. Good job guys!
This is different. Bush I looks like Rush Limbaugh compared to Rudy911. Rudy911 is a whole new universe of leftism in the GOP.
Since third parties never win and our system only allows for voting for the lesser of two evils in the general elections I’ll be holding my nose and voting for Rudy if he’s the only prospective candidate capable of defeating Hitlery in the general election. I’s rather win than make a point.
You are 100% correct that Perot gave us Bubba...but, should the GOP abandon it’s pro-life platform and nominate are pro-abort, the majority of pro-lifers will stay home.
I have said for YEARS in my FR postings that the pro-life GOP voters are NOT a majority of the GOP, but that the GOP cannot win without their 28% (28% was my estimate of the GOP vote percentage they represent....now this poll backs up my estimate).
For the pro-life voter, it would voilate the very core of their being to vote for a pro-abort canidate in any party.
The liberal press has EGGED on the GOP to be more “moderate” and “tolerant” by offering a pro-abort canidate...when your ENEMIES encourage you to be more “inclusive”, you can bet that THEY understand that it would be the kiss of death for the GOP.
The BLUE BLOOD GOPers also want the GOP to adandon this “family values” stuff....I hope this poll shows them the peril if it does....the GOP is the REAL big tent...pro-life and pro-abort are in its’ ranks...but it takes BOTH to win.
Blaming the GOP loss on the grass-roots makes no sense to me. I place all the blame squarely upon the GOP "leadership".
That is where the blame belongs.
The voters will vote for a candidate or they will vote against a candidate, depending on the choices offered.
Just who the heck are these "swing voters" anyway?
Why do you think they will swing either direction?
The GOP does not own over 50% of the vote, and probably never has.
We depend on swing voters to make up the majority.
