Question of the Day
According to the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), there are now over 1,000 active hate groups in the U.S.
-- How many of them support the Republican Party, lean Republican, or are actively involved with the GOP?
As Mark Potok, the editor of the SPLC's Intelligence Report, explains:
Far-right extremists remain highly energized, even as politicians across the country co-opt many of the radical ideas and issues that are important to them. This success in having their voices heard in the political arena, where they have long occupied the fringe of conservative thought, might eventually take the wind out of their sails, but so far we're not seeing any sign of that.
