PPP is out with a new poll that is very interesting:
49% of GOP voters nationally say they think that ACORN stole the election for President Obama. We found that 52% of Republicans thought that ACORN stole the 2008 election for Obama, so this is a modest decline, but perhaps smaller than might have been expected given that ACORN doesn’t exist anymore.
First off, Republicans really need to stop listening to Fox News. ACORN is no longer in existence, and it’s just another boogie-man conspiracy that the right has manufactured.
Then we find our that the party that claims to be the “patriots” have such little love of our country that they want to leave it:
Some GOP voters are so unhappy with the outcome that they no longer care to be a part of the United States. 25% of Republicans say they would like their state to secede from the union compared to 56% who want to stay and 19% who aren’t sure.
So a quarter of the GOP just wants to up and leave our country simply because their man lost. Tell me again how democracy works? That’s right. To Republicans democracy means we hold elections but the winner damn well better be their person.
Welcome to the whiny “I’m taking my ball and going home” attitude of that party of Reagan.
But all this whining and bitching appears to be a sign of the last throes of the Republican Party. This number here is something that the left can cheer on:
Our final poll before the election, which hit the final outcome almost on the head, found 39% of voters identifying themselves as Democrats and 37% as Republicans. Since the election we’ve seen a 5 point increase in Democratic identification to 44%, and a 5 point decrease in Republican identification to 32%.
The Republican Party is quickly becoming the minority in this country. We are seeing the fall of the right in this country and right now there is no life boats being lowered to help them. This is because the GOP is a party without leadership, and until they get someone to lead them then they will continue to drown.
So the big question now is the one of leadership. Who will become the savior of the right? Is it Jeb Bush? Maybe Chris Christie? Well until they stop listening to the extreme elements of their party, like the Tea Party, then that won’t happen. So sit back and watch the not so slow death of an American party. It should be interesting.
