So what has caused this movement away from the GOP?Now I suspect that after eight years in the White House, the Republican party has became synonymous with the Bush administration, which also means it's synonymous with two wars, the recession, Hurricane Katrina, and some strong religion-based positions such as support for abstinence-only education, overturning Roe v.
