Rethinking the GOP: Should Republicans Move Left to Win Back Moderates?

Democrats picked up new voters in November. It's unclear whether the GOP will win them back.


Analysts from the conservative Hoover Institution argue that the 2008 election caused a "fundamental change in partisan loyalties," with significant loss of voters for the GOP. According to Hot Docs, "conservative social positions on issues like abortion and gay marriage are 'repelling moderates the party needs to maintain its long-term competitiveness.'" But polls say Republicans don't have to shift too far to the center to win voters back. Should the GOP adopt moderate policies to remain politically competitive? Post your thoughts.
