The Republican Party is appropriately called “the stupid party” given their tendency to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
This manifests in several ways.
Republicans often nominate uninspiring and moderate presidential candidates like Bob Dole, John McCain, and Mitt Romney. While these individuals might make adequate presidents, better than their Democrat competitors, they turn off the GOP base which realizes it’s just another four-year “meet the new boss, same as the old boss” offering.
