A quote poached from Sullivan:
“It’s gone. The breakup of what was the Reagan coalition — social conservatives, defense conservatives, antitax conservatives — it doesn’t mean a whole lot to people anymore,”
– Ed Rollins, Ronald Reagan’s political director and Mike Huckabee’s national campaign chairman.
I have written on the same topic here and here. Regarding issues like immigration or the Huckabee campaign, you really see diametrically opposed camps that won’t settle anymore for sweeping their differences under the rug.
