41. That's an excellent point,
most people are fairly neutral or apathetic politically, and they are the ones we do, indeed, need to reach. We're certainly not going to convert the wingnuts anymore than they're going to convert us (the day a wingnut converts me is the day I either kill myself or check myself into a psychiatric hospital!), so the vast middle-ground is who we need to focus on.
