I think Right wing Christians are turning off normal people. The Right has turned Jesus into some cartoon character and they've turned themselves into
science-denying cultural lynch mobs, viciously targeting and trying to limit the rights of people unlike themselves. No one with a brain or a heart
wants to be associated with the Christian Right.
If you are some thoughtful and aware kid growing up, you see two groups: one has near blood lust and are perpetually angry and hateful, the other is
made up of people accepting of others and willing to live and let live. Which one would you want to align yourself with?
The Right lives in an alternate universe bubble where facts don't matter and they imagine most other (especially country and white) people think as
they do. They can't fathom how far removed they are from normal human attitudes. This also explains their inability to accept the polling data. Gee,
Dems are being over sampled!! Dems and Republicans should be sampled equally! They actually think that makes sense because they long ago gave up their
ability to think critically (in fact, critical thinking is considered "dangerous" to children, so says the Texas Board of Education). They simply no
longer have the cognitive ability to realize that polls sample one large poll of people and the party affiliations fall where they may. A poll does
not look for 500 Dems and then find 500 Repub. Duh, that'd result in a 50/50 poll every time.
The Right just can't accept that they represent a dwindling minority because all the sane people have left or are leaving, moving either to Dems or
most likely to a non-party affiliation. No one wants to be in a club where the meanest, conspiracy prone, pathologically lying and most crazy now hold
