I agree. the Religious are not all there is to the GOP. It is a huge mistake to think so. But, usually people who DO think that are trying to pretend that the GOP does NOT have a giant toehold in the homes of Joe SixPack and his family! It is their reflexive attempt to imagine that regular Americans are really still on their side and jsut need a "good candidate" for them to vote for.
They are completely unable to admit that it is their MESSAGE that is killing them.
Then why not say so? this article said the right was fractured. Basically the left is intolerant so the middle is voting with us. If the Democrats ever figure out that they should be Pro America they could take some seats.
