    This is social conservatism I believe.

    Social conservatism is dying, which is why real conservatives are looking for a suitable alternative to the GOP.

    It's interesting that the largest % think both parties need to compromise (66%)

    Agreed. Social cons have become a gut-busting punchline.

    And legalization of gay marriage nationally will be the end of them.

    Really? Seems like the polls have been showing that for years. Only a sliver of voters are enjoying the current do-nothing gridlock.

    It'd be the top reason Congress is running their lowest approval ratings in history.

    I don't see social conservatism as something that's dying.

    Social conservatism espouses the virtues of family, country, god and is typically opposed to abortion, gay rights and even sometimes the acceptance of Islam.

    Sorry, but how is that dying?

    It's being less supported.

    There was an article here one of the resident hacks posted about Cruz proposing anti gay marriage legislation when gay marriage is now popularly supported (or accepted).

    That's the stuff I'm talking about, get the $#@! out of our bedrooms.

    The last time I looked homosexuals were dragging their bedrooms into private businesses and demanding our attention.

    No ... in reality it's the Conservative Thinking that's dying.

    So enjoy the new minority status.
