I think people are ready to swing back after Obama and many people like the economic policies of the republican (I am a die hard liberal, but I understand America is not). The only thing holding them back IS there social policy. It is just far too out of touch with over 70% of the American public, too many people support gay marriage, pro choice and women's rights. Plus they are still pushing this super Christian morals but less than half of the US identifies as Christian, let alone even less who feel they should play a part in politics... I have always said, if they dropped the crazy right wings Christians, I think they would be the ones about to win this election hands down (thank goodness that is NOT the case for myself). At this point, the party needs to die a new conservative party needs to rise form it, they tried that with the whole 'GOP' thing (plus to distance form Bush), but it failed and the Tea Party is even crazier to many.
Shutting down the government is always frowned upon, that means that politicians aren't able to do their job, on both sides. It is a massive waste of money and services as well.
