Republican Party Too Extreme, Majority Of Americans Say: Poll

"SNIP...............................................

For the first time, a majority of Americans now say the Republican Party is too extreme, according to a poll released Thursday by CNN/ORC.

Fifty-three percent of people, including 22 percent of Republicans, said the GOP's views and policies have pushed them beyond the mainstream. The number is up dramatically from previous years. In 2010, fewer than 40 percent thought the party was too extreme.

Democrats were considered to be a "generally mainstream" party by 57 percent in the new poll.

"That's due in part to the fact that the Republican brand is not doing all that well," said Keating Holland, CNN's polling director.

1. The consequences of putting profit and power over people....

And of playing to demagoguery of the worst kind-racism, sexism, xenophobia, militaristic jingoism, and homophobia.

Good riddance to the Republican brand.

3. What they say for a poll isnt reflected in how they vote. Approx 68% of eligible voters didnt vote

for Pres Obama.

5. No it's why there is still a shitload of Republicans in Congress.

Apparently a whole lot of those 53% that think the Repubs are too extreme are not voting Democratic.
