Now that the initial backlash has passed, let’s objectively chat about Elisa Chan and her anti-gay statements. Let me start this off by stating that Elisa Chan identifies with the Republican party. Why is that relevant? In a nutshell what this means is that she doesn’t expect to receive any support from Democratic voters. Okay, now we have established that.
As we listen in on the now infamous audio recordings we can hear that they are discussing how to appeal to her Conservative voter base. It is obviously clear that they were trying to determine how to lock in those supporters while at the same time not heavily offending non-supporters or potential would be supporters. Let us be clear on one thing though, at least for the foreseeable future it is safe to say that Democrats will not vote for a Republican candidate. You can rest assured that conservatives know this as well.
You’ll notice that I do say the “foreseeable future” and there is a reason for that. A brief look through history or a quick online search will demonstrate that some of these so called “Republican” organizations actually supported and protected what have since then become Democratic voters. Do some research on the NRA and you will see exactly what I am talking about.
