Constitution Daily: Minority group in a minority party?

Excerpted from this post at Constitution Daily

Since there is an article in about every local and national paper incorrectly blaming conservatives and the religious right for our losses, I thought it best to jump in now. Obviously most of you probably know that I'm on the other side of the argument to moderate our positions on the core issues of life, marriage, guns, etc. ... I keep going back to Gross's statement, "Conservatives are a minority group in a minority party." I don't know how he can keep saying that. Almost everybody I talk to believes in traditional marriage, life begins at conception, the right to keep and bear arms, less government, and lower taxes. Those are all conservative ideals. They are also all in our platform. I don't know what Republican Party he has been a part of. He apparently hasn't been to state or county central committee meetings, house parties for candidates, RPI dinners, campaigns' headquarters, or any other political function. These rooms are all filled with conservatives, not moderates.
