TCI Street Poll: Wither ye moderate Republicans?
Commemorating Abraham Lincoln’s Feb. 12 birthday, Michael Lind of the New America Foundation writes:
Nobody with Lincoln’s religious and political beliefs could be a conservative Republican on the bicentennial of Lincoln’s birthday. Until a generation ago, someone who thought the way Lincoln did could still find a home among the moderate Republicans of the Northeast and Midwest. But today Lincoln Republicans have been driven out of the Republican Party by an alliance of the religious right and free-market fundamentalists.
