    There have been many pundits and analysts talking about the party changing to win elections.  That ignores who the voters are of that party.  

    They want the "fence" built to keep the brown people out.  They want the "welfare queens" off welfare, fully talking about blacks.  They want English as the official language.  They want gays rounded up and executed. They want the bible taught in schools, and nothing else. They do not want "critical thinking" taught in schools.

    The list is far complete.

    That is why the Republican Party can say anything it wants to, knowing that they will not bring over the Black vote or the Brown vote, or the Women vote, or the Gay vote, or the Asian vote.

    The push to double down on the "conservative message" just means that will do more of the same they have done during the last 30 years.  And the voters know it.

      racism, homophobia, and xenophobia.  They are very devoted to their bigotry and the base votes in their primaries.  So at this rate, the base will keep nominating the fringe candidates.  The problem is with their base and who their devoted and dependable voters are.
