Today James and I are releasing the first poll in the Republican Party Project: a look at who Republicans are, what drives them, why they can’t help but keep moving to the right, and why we need not retreat from their extremism.

Republicans seem to believe that they have a mandate for conservative government, but voters disagree. The GOP has grown progressively weaker since the Tea Party emerged in 2010 — and now is the time to fight back.

The results of the first national survey of the Republican Party Project can be seen here. For a closer look at the data, click here. You can read National Memo Editor-in-Chief Joe Conason’s analysis of the survey here.
