Obama’s pollster: Republicans have a tolerance problem

… “The Republican Party has a tolerance problem,” … [Obama campaign pollster Joel] Benenson told reporters Wednesday at a session hosted by Third Way, a centrist Democratic group. “I think when you define people who look differently than you as illegal aliens, and use that term over and over again, and talk about self-deporting them, that’s a tolerance issue.” …

But the tolerance issue, he says, goes beyond race and ethnicity – it goes to issues.

“When you call people who believe in global warming ‘job-killers,’ you have a tolerance problem,” Benenson says. [cont.]
