There are two trains of thought. One is that if Republicans move to the right and more strongly embrace the conservatives, they will gain more support and votes than they will lose. The train of thought is that they might lose some moderates but that they will make up for it by winning right-wingers and distinguish themselves from Democrats. On the other hand, there are moderates who think that the Republican candidates should move even more to the middle. They think that if the candidates move too far to the conservative right side, then they will alienate the moderate undecided group. My thinking is more toward the moderates and I believe that any significant move to the right by Republicans will win some vocal conservatives but lose many more of the moderate undecided. Your thoughts?
