5. Yeah, the Republicans drove out all their moderates.

Their 2012-team was so much of a clown-show that they compromised on the blandest, most boring guy they could find.


Remember the run-up to 2012?
"Oh, shit. I hope the Republicans don't run Portman. Portman would siphon so many democratic voters. We will lose if the Republicans nominate Portman."
In the end, Portman turned out to be too moderate and never got past single-digits in the polls.
