  •  I think a core will remain in hard red districts (6+ / 0-)

    but I also think that what being a TP member means will change to be more subjective.  Regardless, our job is to idenitfy the fringe Republican districts and go after those districts intensely in 2014. The problem with the TP is more with the fact that it sets the agenda for the GOP with influence disproportionate to its numbers.  Its numbers may decline but it will still hold sway over the caucus as a whole.   Because the GOP will tow their line the major answer is to replace the GOP -- and the best way to do that is target the  weakest GOP districts, not the strongest ones. I just hope the president shares his database with the party for this election.

    And thank you for your real hard work here.  It was illuminating to see both how small the caucus is, and that it's shrinking.
