    LOL is this a serious question? Right-wing crazies think they represent a majority, but that's only because their beliefs aren't fact-based.

    Because about 45% of voters consider themselves Moderates, as opposed to Liberals or Conservatives.

    olympia Snowe has a 60% approval rating from Dems, I doubt if Mitch Turtle face Mconnell has that rating.

    No. It's BECAUSE 70% of the people want taxes raised on the wealthy. And BECAUSE 85% of the people think corporations have too much influence on the government. And BECAUSE 65% of the people think that wealth is maldistributed in this country and we should have an income distribution like Sweden's.

    And, in short, because the right-wing Tea Party types are NOT a majority.

    You believe you represent a majority. Your beliefs certainly aren't "fact based."
