This looks bad for the GOP:
A CNN/Opinion Research Corporation Survey out Friday indicates that 2008 may not be a good year for Republicans up and down the ticket, even though most national surveys indicate the race for the White House between Sens. John McCain and Barack Obama is quite close right now.
Sixty-three percent of Democrats questioned say they are either extremely or very enthusiastic about voting this year. Only 37 percent of Republicans feel the same way, and 36 percent of Republicans say they are not enthusiastic about voting.
The Democrats are united for creeping socialism. The GOP is fractured, with John McCain offering a wink to each of the party’s faces: the populists (anti-immigrant, pro-censorship), the religious right (anti-abortion), and the socialists light (carbon caps). The result is that hardly anybody likes McCain, and many Republicans detest him. Forgotten is the free-market faction.
The only Republicans who whisper about cutting spending are usually the same ones beholden to the James Dobson crowd and who for that reason alienate independent voters and non-sectarian Republicans.
Where is the Republican who calls for individual rights, lower spending, serious entitlement reform, free trade, free speech, and sound money?
