Conservatives/GOP

Question
To what extent are American conservatives becoming fed up with the Grand Old Party?

Answer
On a scale from 1- 10, I'd say a nine. Unfortunately, the only way to change the leadership of the GOP is through the long, difficult process of defeating the electeds in primaries. Incumbency is pretty much its own reward. I believe something like 90% of incumbents get re-elected. Now and then people like Cantor are defeated, but it takes time, and a lot of people are getting tired of waiting.
