Well, for a few decades now, Republicans have been more and more big-government (which is the exact opposite of the party platform). Generally at the national level though, they seem Democrats win (primarily due to people being against Republicans wanting to legislate the Bible) and their illogical response is to try to out-Democrat the Democrat candidate. Both Republicans and Democrats keep coming under more and more criticism for being too similar while support for third parties (primarily the Libertarian party) grows, but instead of acknowledging that the voters want someone more libertarian minded, they just insult that growing portion of the population and go even more extreme towards the things that Americans dislike.
We seriously need to change our voting laws that allow candidates to win with very low percentages of the vote and also push people to vote for "the lesser evil" instead of their preferred candidate.
