Democracy Corps Bravely Goes Inside the Mind of the GOP Base

Political Wire:

These base Republican voters dislike Barack Obama to be sure -- which is not very surprising as base Democrats had few positive things to say about George Bush -- but these voters identify themselves as part of a 'mocked' minority with a set of shared beliefs and knowledge, and commitment to oppose Obama that sets them apart from the majority in the country. They believe Obama is ruthlessly advancing a 'secret agenda' to bankrupt the United States and dramatically expand government control to an extent nothing short of socialism. They overwhelmingly view a successful Obama presidency as the destruction of this country's founding principles and are committed to seeing the president fail.
