where is that 30% going? the Dems? laughable. also laughable is your assertion that 30% of the electorate are single issue voters concerning roe v wade.


He's got a point though.

Assuming they don't make their own party, you still will lose turnout from people who abortion is a big deal on the pro-life side. Given what the last election showed, lower conservative turnout could kill any in-roads you make with other groups.

The abortion issue is a thin wire to walk for the GOP.

I agree, courting minority votes away from the democratic party seems a list cause. If Abraham Lincoln was alive today to see how the blacks swallow up Obama's empty rhetoric, he'd be in the Guinness Book of World Records for being 203 years old.

You have to start asking yourself, "Who is the GOP?" Since apparently it doesn't include women or minorities in the first place.

depends on how you do the courting. if you attempt to court with rhetoric and by convincing them that your thoughts for America are better than Dems, then it is a lost cause.

The Republicans have to do a better job of renting buses, bringing people to the polls, and helping those people leave with food, water, beer, iphones, ipods, etc.

Won't work. Women are frightened by the concept of freedom

Bingo.

I would just add most rather than assume all.

But it's true, they naturally fear being alone (i.e. free).

They need a much improved ground game. This is their failure.

Can't compete here. Look at the map.
I'm afraid it might be time for the GOP to freak the crap out.
And it looks like Bobby Jindal is leading the charge. Might be our only hope.
