I will have more tomorrow once some solid numbers come in but I will leave you with this.
The Republicans took on a wounded,lame duck president without a vision for the next 4 years. Obama will now have a free ride as a lame duck because the Republicans will be too busy bickering over what went wrong and who will get the next nomination.
What went wrong was this: In the run up to the nomination Romney was the lesser of all the evils candidate. If the whole party couldn’t get behind him enthusiastically,how on earth did they think the country would?
That and the discussion about religion and abortion. It will bite you every time!
Whether you want to hear it or not, the 2016 election has already begun.
A poll on Fox news today revealed that 56.18% of the issues put to forth respondents were equally important. Some of the choices were: fixing the medicare overhaul,addressing the threat from Iran,reducing the national debt,securing the boarder and fighting the war on religion.
This poll and the issues put forth may explain in part why Republicans are having a hard time getting behind one candidate.
There is no lighting rod issue to rally the delegates around one candidate.
Curiously absent was ” Giving Obama the boot” which I would think as a fairly important issue to most Republicans.
