The problem is how a MINORITY segment on the right expects to dictate to the party what constitutes a "Republican". And if their minority segment opinion does not overrule the majority segment opinion, the pretense is made that the party officials are no longer "Republican".

There's no confusion in that.
Once again there are 16 presidential candidates representing a diversity of views, which of these candidate's supporters are the minority dictating what it is to be a Republican? Of course there is no definitive answer you just want to spout partisan invective about Republicans not knowing what the majority of their party thinks.

None of them.
I'm not talking about the presidential candidates.
In fact, as I have explained in the past the Republican presidential nomination is an example of what I am talking about. Because the party as a whole gets involved in the nomination process, the Republican presidential candidate that succeeds in the nomination process is typically a better representation of what the party wants.

And then what happens is other people in the party (a minority) start labeling their candidate as a "RINO".

Here's an example.
Guns
CBS News/New York Times Poll. May 31-June 4, 2013. N=1,022 adults nationwide. Margin of error Ī 3
"In April, a bill that would have expanded background checks on gun purchases did not receive enough votes in the U.S. Senate to pass. If it comes up for another vote, do you think Congress should pass a bill that expands background checks for gun purchases, or not?"
Republicans:
  • SHOULD Pass: 58%
  • Should not pass: 40%
  • Unsure / No answer: 2%
And which position did the Republican elected officials follow?
Not the majority of their party...

And this is an interesting fact about how this survey was conducted.



They asked the youngest people they could find, and the young are notoriously liberal.

Now let's do the same survey with people who are ages 35 to 50 and see what kind of results you get.
more likely because we are at another watershed. Some of our generation will not live to vote in the next election.

What could possibly convince you? Tells us a scenario that would make you say, "Hey PP is selling parts of babies for money" Since videos of different directors saying they do it isn't enough, I guess only the word of the almighty will change your mind, huh?

How the Public Views Planned Parenthood and the NRA - NBC News

So, Planned Parenthood is at 45%
Obama => 44%
Republican Party => 28%.

Guess enough people see through the right's campaign of ever raining b.s.

Gee you notice both numbers the Democratic Party was rated at? "38"

Just how great is 38 out of 100?

Also I don't believe every Dem is in the party for the same reasons. Sense it has such a wide arena.

Plus the very Rich have their goals while some average Dem person has theirs.

Just another reason this party has so many people in it. No real direction. As with these numbers. Last polls showed Hillary & Sander's were about the same as Sander's number are on the rise.

Conservatives continue to hold an enormous advantage over liberals in this country.

However, this survey reinforces the fact that more and more erstwhile Republicans are now disappointed with their former party, as it has not shown itself to be conservative enough. (Evidence of this is the fact that voters given Republicans the majority in both chambers of Congress; yet very little has changed. In the Senate, a Mitch McConnell-led Senate seems almost indistinguishable from a Harry Reid-led Senate.)

This probably speaks to Donald Trump's broad, anti-establishment appeal...
