History has shown that a divided party never wins elections. If the Republican Party intends to be a real contender in the next election, they will need to work on their party unity. I’m honestly a little surprised that it has taken them this long to work this out on their own.
This is the unfortunate reality of partisan politics. The Tea Party has taken on more extremist positions, and those actions have divided the support within the Republican Party. The reality of our current political environment is that a third party almost certainly cannot defeat the Republican or Democratic candidates in elections. Dividing support will always cause the downfall of the party that most closely aligns with their views. So if they want to push ANY conservative values, the Tea Party has to start to align with Republican values or influence Republicans to support them, else there is no way for either party to succeed.
By dividing the party and employing wedge issues to further develop chasms, the tea party continues to cause problems for the Republican Party. This is a typical problem of those holding more extreme beliefs to hurt the advance of more moderate viewpoints. Hatch knows that a moderate viewpoint gains support and votes. However, Hatch's public comments may upset members of the tea party and further cause problems. If this is the case, he may definitely need some public relations support to advise against polarizing dialogue. But I think that as the 2016 elections loom closer, the tea party will be more willing to work with the Republican Party. It will be interesting to see if the problem continues or worsens as that date gets closer.
Senator Hatch is highlighting a problem that has escalated in the Republican Party. The faction of the tea party activists within the party has caused there to be a radicalization of ideas and reputation of the party. New tea party candidates are taking vote from more moderate, electable candidates which in the end, takes away from the party. The party has become divided with moderates on one side and radicals on the other causing a split vote. A house divided does not win and certainly does not make a difference. As Senator Hatch suggests, the tea party should consolidate and work with the national party to help candidates win. After all, isn’t that the goal to political parties?
Senator Hatch is bringing to light a problem that so many Republicans have with the party. The tea party is making it almost impossible for more moderate republicans to even vote for their party anymore. So many socially liberal fiscal conservatives have been alienated by the party which is a major issue for the Republican Party. The tea party is pushing out women and minorities with their extreme socially conservative views, and the Republican party needs to adjust to the social changes of America.
I couldn't agree more with Senator Hatch. 't the past, divided parties never win elections. History has shown that it's more effective to come together as a party and support one candidate. Putting all issues aside, the Republicans need to coordinate. When there are factions within a party, the party most likely won't be elected. The more moderate the candidate the more likely the will be elected. Republicans need to keep this in mind.
I agree with Senator Hatch that tea party members are ruining the chances of the Republican party being elected. Tea party members are entitled to their extreme positions, but dividing the party helps no one. As representatives of the people, congress should be focused on progressing our country rather than pushing minority opinions.
The need to have cohesion in a political party has been evident by the difficulty some Republican candidates have faced in local elections. The split of conservative voters allows for a liberal agenda to advance against a political partty at war with itself. The truth is that many Republicans dont agree with the ideas of many Tea Party individuals as the Tea Party has no unified voice.
