  •  Elections are about issues (0+ / 0-)

    Interesting hypothesis. The tea party embodies the sense of "victimhood" the author discusses, but as others have commented,  this is not the sole reason for Republican decline. Elections actually are about issues, and Romney was on the wrong side of many issues.

    •  Only partly (0+ / 0-)

      That's what elections should be about (that and character and competence). In practice they're also influenced by tribal identity.

      Romney was on both the right side and the wrong side of many issues, sometimes in the same interview :-)
