"The Republican Party, has become an insurgent outlier — ideologically extreme; contemptuous of the inherited social and economic policy regime; scornful of compromise; unpersuaded by conventional understanding of facts, evidence and science; and dismissive of the legitimacy of its political opposition," in Thomas Mann and Norman Ornstein, It's Even Worse Than It Looks (2012).

As well, I might add: increasingly exclusionist; single-minded in the pursuit of extreme financial benefit for the few to the detriment of the many; dismissive of education for the largest number of people and for the poor or middle class; racist; as well as a host of other maladies that pushes out or marginalizes their moderates.
