Include among the voters who today’s GOP is alienating Godless Mormons. They are Utah and a big slice of Arizona and Nevada. These are states that the GOP counts on keeping Red. Will Mormons really vote Republican after the evangelicals have extended such a big middle finger to them?
I’d add a few more voting populations to those at risk for the Republicans like moderate Republicans. They just got the same finger. They aren’t concentrated in any particular state but scattered around the country. I’d guess that even the redest states have at least a 5% moderate Republican population. That kind of a loss in all fifty states would have an impact this November.
I’m rather pleased that Gingrich is the new face of the Grand Old Party. Its a party that has been convinced from watching too much FOX News that Obama can only debate by teleprompter. I think Fox watchers are prone to fantasy but I’ve got a whole year ahead of me to get schooled by them.
How wacked is FOX? They put on a “psychologist” who argued that Gingrich has demonstrated he’s going to be a great President because so many of his women wanted him no matter how despicable he was to them. It was a sign of leadership. Maybe Hugh Hefner should throw his hat into the ring.
You can’t make this stuff up. Here’s a sample of what the FOX expert said and it just gets worse and worse and worse:
First, one note on what Mr. Gingrich’s married life, including his history of infidelity does not mean: It does not mean that Mr. Gingrich would be unfaithful to the United States of America or the Constitution of the United States.
FOX’s Roger Ailes is the hero of the book “The Selling of the President” about Richard Nixon’s 1968 campaign. I can’t say I wish him luck with Newt. Reader Warning. The book’s author is Joe McGinniss. He’s the guy who moved next to the Palin’s House in Wasilla, Alaska to research a book about her.
Oh, and one more thing. If there is anybody who can scare the BeJesus out of all the folks who are pissed off at Barack enough to get them to reconsider staying home and playing dead on the day of the election it is Newt GetRich.
