I wrote yesterday about how the new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll demonstrated the GOP's problem with being disconnected from the mainstream of American voters. In short, while most Americans deplore gridlock and think congressional Republicans have been too inflexible, Republican voters think that the party hasn't been inflexible enough. This leaves Republicans with a choice of pleasing their base or appealing to swing voters, but they can't do both.
