Could it be Conservative Backlash?


A USA TODAY/Gallup Poll shows that one-third of Republicans have an unfavorable view of their party while only 4% of Democrats said the same of theirs.

I posted a few weeks ago about how, in my view, conservatives like me have been betrayed by the party we usually call home. They continue to give us less than desirable candidates and really outdid themselves by giving us that old maverick, John McCain, as a presidential candidate.

I was not contacted as a part of this survey but I would be among that unhappy one-third. Could it be that conservatives have grown weary of the party’s move toward the center, and ultimately the left? Are the days of conservatives voting Republican in every election over? I said before, I’d rather lose with someone who represents me and the issues that are important to me rather than win with someone who is a maverick. Are the GOP leaders learning anything from all of this? I would hope so, but I have my doubts. What do you think?
