Not So Comfortably Smug

It’s easy to mock Republicans these days. They are sitting on record low approval ratings. The party is woefully behind the demographic curve on everything from gay rights to immigration and are still trapped in the 20th Century when it comes to campaign technology. A recent headline on a Pew Research poll sums up the GOP’s troubles thusly: “GOP Seen as Principled, But Out of Touch and Too Extreme.”

That said, Democrats should be careful about getting too comfortable about their prospects in 2014 and beyond. [cont.]
