  •  It's the bad economy (0+ / 0-)

    Conservative voters focus less on wedge issues when the economy is in trouble, when they have to worry about making ends meet.

    The ongoing bad economy also makes GOP voters question their own party and its candidates.  They're upset that their party is focusing on BS issues instead of trying to get the economy back on track.  They're beginning to question conservative doctrine on trickle down economics as their families, friends and communities are being devastated by a recession that grinds on without relief.

    Failure of any party to resolve pocketbook issues is always a threat to voter loyalty.

    It is an old strategy of tyrants to delude their victims into fighting their battles for them. FDR
