Simple question. Personally, I don't think so. I think the country will stick with the status quo on this. Pres Obama and the Dems have generally made themselves look pretty greedy and irresponsible lately with the $1 trillion in tax hikes proposal in their budgets and their lack of compromise on tax hikes during the sequestration "negotiations" (I use that term loosely). In addition, it seems convervatives in general have begun to back off of their opposition to gay marriage and have softened their stance on immigration issues. Those two issues, IMO, are the two they can back off of and save face with their constituents. With gay marriage, the GOP can shift it's beliefs not necessarily to pro gay marriage, but to a stance of "we still oppose it, but we can't constitutionally bar it". That's an easy fix. As far as immigration, Sen Rubio can simply take the lead on that and win the public's favor. Anyway, that's my opinion. What say you?
