Where is the Republican party heading?

Voters don't like crazy eyed Republican candidates. Voters seem to prefer the Chris Christie type of Republican.

To quote the link:

"Mr Christie has been unusually frank in acknowledging the problem and has made modest improvements by reducing expenditure and increasing revenue. That sort of balanced approach is anathema to many Republicans in Congress, and Mr Christie would doubtless have trouble defending it before voters in the Republican presidential primaries, as he surely will in 2016."

and

"Republicans have now lost winnable statewide seats in Virginia, Missouri and Indiana in the past year, by running candidates who please the party’s base but strike other voters as a bit weird. The party has collapsed in big cities: none of the 12 largest has a Republican mayor. The elections on November 5th once again suggest that Americans quite like Republican moderates but can’t abide the zealots"

Republican Party - Quo vadis?
