Rothenberg on GOP Primary Field


In the same spirit as my previous post, the renowned political analyst Stuart Rothenberg expresses complete befuddlement at Rudy’s ability so far to completely buck the conventional wisdom that holds he cannot win the nomination of a predominantly pro-life party.

Mr. Rothenberg should not be so incredulous. Republicans, and Americans in general, want a leader first and foremost, not necessarily someone who will toe the line on the laundry list of social issues. As the campaign progresses, pundits who underestimate this and adhere to their preconceived notions of the intolerance and ideological rigidity of Republican voters do so at their own peril.
