Pew Finds GOP Divided, Ready For Change

by Categorized: Republicans Date:

\"GopA new national survey by the Pew Research Center reveals a divided Republican party where U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan remains a favorite. While better than six-in-ten of voters think the party needs to take major action if it wants to win the White House in 2016, it\’s not clear what that should be.

By a 54-to-40 margin, Republican and Republican-leaning voters think the party should turn more conservative and better than a third think the GOP has compromised too much. However, on abortion and gay marriage, Republicans remain divided about whether the party should take a more conservative or moderate stance.

Pew surveyed 1,480 adults for the poll, including 497 Republican and Republican-leaning registered voters.

    Interesting – its like they polled me. I would love to see the GOP drop its opposition to gay marriage and then double down on its support for cutting govenrment spending, restricting the role of government, protecting gun rights and curbing illegal immigration.
