When Worlds Collide . . .

 "On a conference call with reporters just now, Democracy Corps' James Carville, Stan Greenberg and Karl Agne went over their focus group study of Republican base voters and their worldview that President Obama is out to destroy the country -- and the pressure this puts on Republican voters to make no compromises with the Obama administration.

"I don't know if we'll say we were startled," said Carville, "but if you take the position that these Republican voters take, it's easy to see why it leads to this, but they really believe that Obama has a secret agenda here. And our view is this is a dominant view in the Republican Party."

Hmmm.  I am beginning to suspect that we really do live in different worlds.  And then there's this, which doesn't bode well for the GOP in 2010 or 2012:

"Karl Agne also noted that GOP voters see the the party's leadership as too timid and not strong enough on the issues: "Their negative view of the Republican party is really startling."

Well, duh! It's clear that the voters - especially conservative and independent ones - are really fed up with the political class as a whole.

Read it all here.
