You think? This isn’t news. What is interesting, however, is the fact that yet another poll shows that the remaining people left in the GOP are far more conservative than just a few years ago.
Those who identify as Republicans today see themselves as more conservative politically than those who said so during the last years of the presidency of George W. Bush.
This is the challenge for Republicans. How do you deal with the pressure in your own party to veer to the right, when by doing so, you risk alienating the very people who left your party because it veered too far to the right – people you need back in order to win elections?
