Andrew Hacker, Can Romney Get a Majority?

40 percent: Number of Republicans who support a social safety net, according to a Pew study.

"In 1987, fully 62 percent of Republicans favored some kind of social safety net and 58 percent saw some good in unions, signs of a then moderate majority. Today, only 40 percent and 43 percent hold those views. As recently as 1992, a hearty 86 percent were saying they favored environmental regulation of some sort. Today, with a purer party, it’s down to 47 percent."
