FirstRead: Republicans Got Crushed on the Issues Too

For all the talk about how Mitt Romney and the Republicans lost when it came to demographics, the turnout, and the tactics, the exit polls also show that they lost when it came to the issues.
For years, the GOP has branded itself as the party that supports low taxes (especially for the wealthy) and opposes abortion and gay marriage.
But according to the exit polls from last week’s presidential election, a combined 60% said that tax rates should increase either for everyone or for those making more than $250,000. Just 35% said the tax rates shouldn’t increase for anyone.
What’s more, 59% said that abortion should be legal in all or most cases.

2. Repubs Are Trying Hard to Blame Anything But Their Policies for their Wipeout n/t

PBO understands the strong hand he's holding and I am confident he will behave accordingly.
