Young Republicans confirm that their peers hate Republicans
So the college Republicans commission a report to find out why their peers hate their party so much, and we can sit there and laugh that they spent money to discover the obvious:
Words that up-for-grabs voters associate with the GOP: "The responses were brutal: closed-minded, racist, rigid, old-fashioned."
But there were some nuggets of good info in there...
Draft Wendy Davis for Texas governor
