Democracy Corps, headed by James Carville and Stan Greenberg, is out with a new survey that shows the conservative base of the Republican Party out of touch with mainstream America.


The report is based on results of two sets of focus groups held September 29-30, 2009 by Democracy Corps, along with survey data collected over the last four months. The first set of groups were held in suburban Atlanta, GA among older white, self-identified conservative Republican base voters—those that voted for both John McCain and a GOP candidate for Congress. A parallel set of groups was conducted in Cleveland, OH among older white, non-college swing voters—half of whom voted for Barack Obama and half of whom voted for John McCain last November.


The study explored the relevance of the ‘race issue’ among these voters and revealed they’re not just critical of President Obama, but worried he is deliberately trying to deceive the American public in order to advance a secret socialist agenda.


As Laffy notes, the Huffington headline “Teabaggers Out of Touch” is obvious. I’d even say redundant. What? You mean the guy pictured here isn’t reflecting mainstream American thinking?
