Re-branding the repugican cabal?

The repugican cabal has found it's ability to win larger elections is failing, and they want to change the party to attract more voters. But...
From The Daily Kos

In 2012, 72 percent of Mitt Romney's support came from opponents of marriage equality, 59 percent came from people who think abortion should illegal, and 43 percent came from evangelical whites. To put it another way, the repugican cabal ain't changing:

    "Look, the repugican cabal isn't going to change," former Sen. Rick Santorum said in an interview. "If we do change, we'll be the whig cabal."

    Santorum continued: "We're not the libertarian cabal, we're the repugican cabal."

It's pretty hard to argue with that: As the numbers make clear, repugicans can't win without the christian religo-nuts. The problem is, they're still having trouble winning. So repugicans should spend more time talking about economic policy and less time on social policy, right?

    "If we gave our voters an accurate portrayal of our ideas, that we want to cut the rate of growth on Social Security, give tax cuts to billionaires and then the values issues, the values issues would be more popular than the economic agenda of the current repugican cabal," said [social wingnut leader Gary] Bauer, citing particularly those Mass-attending Roman catholics who have fled the Democrats.

    Bauer added, "I would caution the donor wing of the repugican cabal that is driving a lot of this: If they think social wingnuts are the only thing preventing repugicans from winning, they'll learn that their economic agenda will go down the tubes along with the repugican cabal's prospects."
