It's a Rasmussen survey

So, it's actually like 126% right?

They didn't follow through to tell us how many said, "but are still voting straight-ticket R because being completely out of touch isn't as bad as being a Democrat"

TADA
over in two

seriously, if you group is completely and totally out of touch, why do you still keep voting for them?
why do you assume that "the other guys" are wrong?
wouldnt that make you just as out of touch??
 
2013-01-15 12:13:33 PM
These are the folks that turned "primary" into a verb so this isn't surprising.

"Yeah, am I supposed to support those terrorist-coddling, baby-killing, America-hating, spendthrift communists in the Democrat Party?  No siree, I'm too well-infromed to vote for those monsters"

Stubbornly Republican, in spite of reality.  Good luck with that, GOP.
 
2013-01-15 12:22:27 PM
And yet, they still voted them into office.

*rolls eyes*

I'm guessing a significant portion of those responding think that congressional Republicans are too liberal.

But GUNNNNNSSSSSSSSSS they're trying to take all our guns away and give them to Obama so only Obama has guns!! Obama is making a law RIGHT NOW to make this happen. He's making the law as we speak and he's going to approve it himself without using the senate and put in the constitution!

Also BENGHASZIIIZIZIZI

FTFAL: Most GOP voters continue to believe that congressional Republicans are out of touch with the party base

In other words most GOP voters believe that congressional Republicans can Herp the Herp, but that can't Derp the Derp.
 
2013-01-15 12:53:40 PM
They also didn't ask whether Congressional Republicans are out of touch by being too conservative, or by being too liberal.

I'd love to see a teabagger's face as his brain grinds and screeches in an effort to comprehend that phrase.

I blame the gays.  We drive a lot of people to vote R because of our evil.

I'm among the 63%

They're not doing nearly enough to oppose Obama.

Change "A significant portion" to "The entirety," and bingo.

The solution is obvious. The Republican party needs more black candidates!

2013-01-15 01:48:37 PM
Sadly, a fair number of those people probably think they're out of touch by NOT believing the full load of Derp they're being sold by their entertainment masters.

Out of touch with their base, is the actual sentence, if you read the article.

In other words, their base likely doesn't think the Republicans are extreme enough.
 
2013-01-15 01:54:01 PM
Congressional Republicans do plenty of touching. In airport restrooms...

This just in: Blocking every single piece of legislation from across the aisle is not nearly enough.

So stop voting for them.

Most GOP voters continue to believe that congressional Republicans are out of touch with the party base, while Democrats are happier than ever with how their team is performing in Washington, DC.

Making marriage equality a front and center issue, a deft foreign policy, reforming healthcare, Lily Ledbetter, trying to put taxes back to where they were when the economy was healthier, etc. With the Dems some long overdue issues are getting resolved, no wonder the Dems are happier.

While the Dems try to fix the nation's problems the GOP just seem to be knee-jerk obstructionists without a plan or any type of real vision for the future. No wonder the GOP base are unhappy.

They're not doing nearly enough to oppose Obama.

Though it's funny, honey, I'm outta touch Don't feel much like a Republican today

It would be more helpful if the survey asked whether they thought Congressional Republicans had lost touch with the Republican base to the left or to the right.  Still, the Republican party has not been this fractured and vulnerable in a very long time.

I find it MUCH more interesting that our society is still "evenly" split. 
Rural/Suburban vs Urban
South vs North
Hate/Religion vs Equality

While we are starting to see SOME shift, it is not clear that the trend will continue or swing back.
Certainly society has pretty much always pendulumed. So are we swinging more liberal for a bit or have we reached the zenith? The legalize pot movement certainly seems to have gathered a ton of steam. The same sex marriage movement has reached the turning point. (I predicted that SCOTUS will rule 5-4 in favor of same-sex marriage this year.)

Will the US move forward or backward. 
Taxes, bank oversight and too big to fail are the milestones in front of us.

namatad: I find it MUCH more interesting that our society is still "evenly" split.

This one may be the key.  The nation is solidly trending more urban, which generally means political liberalization.  It'll take time, but assuming this trend holds, the country should shift left.

Taxes, bank oversight and too big to fail are the milestones in front of us.

The power of banks and Wall Street is less a left/right issue than an informed/uninformed one.  The trend on the latter is grim.

That's not how trolls work.

If you ignore a troll, they just keep cranking up the crazy. They don't go away.
