I see the republicans still haven't figured out why they lost. Instead of figuring that out they blame so and so, or claim cheating, or .... but if truth be known there is a simple reason they lost and it had much to so with the primaries. The primaries showed the republicans for who they were deep down, at their core, and it was not a pretty place. There could be no etch a sketch moment for there was too much baggage to erase. Today, still, you see them as they showed themselves during the primaries, and today Americans according to recent surveys see them too.
