View Diary: Permanent GOP minority status has arrived (170 comments)

  •  Pew has polls over decades showing about 1% (2+ / 0-)

    of the US population moving from the "Social Conservative" agenda of racism, bigotry, misogyny, and so on to our side. It has been much higher recently for LGBT rights, which I attribute to the tipping point giving more people permission to say publicly, and to pollsters, what they were already thinking privately.

    That's not 1% of Republicans, but 1% of 300 million + people, i.e. more than 3 million annually. Then we have to look at how many vote, but Kos is right. No matter how you slice it, by ethnic group, by religious affiliation, or by issue, the Republican playbook is weapons-grade bolonium.

    Ask any Tea Partier, and he will tell you (most likely without realizing it) that that's the best part!
