  •  Differences in values (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Most everyone, Republican, Democrat, or unaffiliated has an order in which their values are of importance. A lot of people here for instance are very liberal, but some seem to harp more on economic equality, while others focus on gay rights, or equal pay for women, or whatever. It isn't that those two disagree, its just that they feel more strongly about economic or social issues than the other. And their worldviews cloud their judgement about what Republican policies will sell best to 50.1%. And really it is fundamentally different groups of people you're trying to bring into the fold if you focus on one vs. another. There are fiscally liberal social conservatives, especially in the minority communities that could be attracted to hard core SoCons. Whereas there were socially liberal fiscal conservatives, especially bin more affluent white suburbs. It really is a matter of which voters they are trying to attract.
