    That's to be expected. The country leans right of center. If the GOP would recruit more conservatives, they would get the majority of the vote. Unfortunately, the GOP wants to become another arm of the Democratic Party.

    But I thought this was the end of the Republican Party. I thought the Republican Party was just going to fade away because they are so out of touch with everyday Americans.

    I will say one thing though. If Republicans are serious about changing their ways, it has to come with more than just talk. Fiscal responsibility must lead the way, and despite the current mess we are in, long term objectives must be addressed. Social Security, Medicare and healthcare in general must be addressed as these are the things that will drive govenment spending to all time highs in the next twenty to forty years. We have to start thinking about it now, and what can be done to reduce the costs of these programs without completely gutting the benefits of these programs.

    At some point, it will be necessary to understand there will be a need for some tax increases, but changes in these programs must be at the forefront. Changing the retirement age to 70 or 71 must be a part of the solution. And the Republican solution cannot just be tax cuts. It has to be based on fiscal responsibility.

    Most of those republicans are gone...thank God. I doubt the Bush policies would be implemented again. I think a more conservative approach would be the order of the day.

    Agreed - the country remains a bit right of center, and this poll is an indication of that. The conservative base has been energized by this Congressional/Obama spending spree - energized far more than it was when McCain ran, and now the 2010 elections are likely to prove very interesting.

    Issues such as Cap n Trade, Health Care, Card Check, etc., will only further energize conservatives.

    I think the dems KNEW their support would collapse, that's why they RAMMED the 787 BILLION dollar spending orgy through behind closed doors, without debate or the five days on the internet as hussein promised with his transparency lie. They finally had a chance to spend money on all their forty year long pet project list, so they did it. The American people be damned. The American people that VOTED for them be damned. It was worth it to them to ram through their pet project spending orgy even with knowledge that it would probably cost them their majority in the next elections. What's done is done, and they know it. They can now be voted back into the minority, but they'll go with a smile on their faces, knowing they got what they wanted. Knowing the memory of the American people is short, and all they'll have to do is hammer on the republicans while they're back in power, and they'll have their chance again someday to do the same thing. It's called politics.

    Quick question---Is it that Republicans were acting like Dems or is it that the Cons are finally figuring out what Limbaugh is saying when he he states that he wants Obama to fail?

    I think it is the latter. By the way--what makes this nation "center Right"? I hear Rove and alot of Right wingers say this, but what makes them so sure that this is so?

    A number of polls have proven this out many times.

    Just because liberals for the most part have all got BIG MOUTHS does NOT mean they're the majority. They just sound like it. The fact of the matter is though America is MORE conservative than liberal. Liberalism doesn't even really fit in with the description of America. It's more E.U., socialistic, communistic... things America isn't.
