They’ll Tear Themselves Apart
They'll Tear Themselves Apart
However, for any candidate to secure the GOP nomination, they need to appeal to a majority of the Republicans. There are a few major groups that make up the Republican Party nationally. These include social conservatives, fiscal conservatives, moderates, libertarians, Evangelicals, and the Tea Party. These three candidates need to find their unique niche among the field to gain an advantage.
This is where the other two contenders will fight and scratch to gain every last vote. Michelle Bachman and Rick Perry both claim to be ultra religious, social and fiscal conservatives, and Tea Party leaders. They both have Evangelical supporters as well.
This will be Perry and Bachman’s downfall. They have to fight for the same voters. In a head on head battle, each will have their dirty laundry waived in public, and it will turn ugly. If Sarah Palin enters the race, this mess will only deepen. The fight will drag on, especially when each candidate has deep pockets and loyal supporters.
