David Frum writes in the Daily Beast that the election results demonstrate that the Republican Party is
ridiculously estranged with the American electorate:
At a time when the need to broaden the party’s appeal seemed overwhelmingly compelling, Republicans narrowed their appeal to the most ideological fragment of the conservative base.

In the build-up to the election. the strategy of the Romney campaign was to appeal to us; yet, here it is written in an article by the writer responsible for the axis of evil phrase spoken by President George W. Bush that his party – and by association conservatives and conservatism – is out of touch with the American mainstream.
So, should conservatives be worried?
