In After North Carolina: Q – Will Whites Vote For The AdelZuck Party? A – Not Enough yesterday I remarked that despite huge funding against essentially penniless opponents
…what is really astonishing here is how low the vote share of the winners was. Tillis could only manage 46% of the vote which would have forced him into a runoff in neighboring South Carolina.

This despite solid MSM help on the really explosive issues as I noted in Saturday`s GOP Debate: MSM Mask Slips – Foreign Policy, Immigation Dissenters To Be Silenced
The Conservatism Inc objective here is doubtless to replicate the situation I discussed in Why Did Romney Wimp Out on Chick-fil-A? Follow The Money: to exclude individuals and issues distasteful to the key donors – regardless of how they might motivate the base.

The sick thing is that those buying this disaster do not care. The Democrats will just as readily obey them on foreign policy and Amnesty and they prevent the otherwise inevitable evolution of the GOP into the Generic American Party – which may well be their true objective. The Consultants/Super PAC operators do not care either: they get rich in the process.
