Once again as the elections approach the republican presidential candidates alienate most voter groups. it looks they have learned nothing from 2008 and 2012 .
sort by best latest
The sad thing is that two or more strong political parties are good for the country and good for democracy,this I believe even though I would never vote for a republican candidate due to the current state of the party
I think you make some valid points,but there is a difference between standing on principle and insulting entire swaths of the electorate.
Generally speaking if someone strongly opposes anything it will be considered to be insulting to those who are affected. Nevertheless my contention was it's not a "learning issue" but rather their unwillingness to move to "the left" on ideas.
After the defeat in 2012 the GOP declared that the party should work on broadening the base and attract voters instead of rejecting them .that doesn't require them to abandon principles but just to not alienate entire sectors of the population.
"Make no mistake the republicans will win this presidential race."
I wouldn't count on that! If you look at the Electoral College map and take into account the war between the haves & have nots along with Bill Clinton's popularity in the South..
I have to correct you since there is no poll in the present time that show trump beating hillary in the presidential election.
Percentage of likely voters in own party that support a candidate. And assuming the parties are near equally split. Perhaps it is an erroneous assumption. Polling stinks on the issue.
percentage of likely voters in own party has nothing to do with general election..the head to head polls show hillary winning by double digits against trump
