Default Re: Judge Jeanine: Mitt Romney awoke a sleeping giant

Republican Party membership is often cited to be about 30 million but the vast majority of those aren't paid members of the Republican Party. They're "registered voters" that want to vote in the Republican primaries and card carrying (paid) party members.

Of course even if we take that number of 30 million registed Republicans seriously it only represents about 15% of all registered voters in the United States.

A sleeping giant? The entire Republican Party more like a hamster in a herd of elephants.
According to Wiki party affiliation runs around 39% - 41% Republican among Americans. For perspective, Democrat affiliation runs 40% - 42% .

The claim that the Republican party is just an insignificant minority is utter nonsense.
