Why shouldn't he believe it. If he turns on any of the little 4 networks or picks up a newspaper, he gets beat over the head with this mantra day and night by commentators who "get a tingle up their leg," thinking about Socialist candidates.
If the conservative movement of Goldwater is dead, this country is done for.
In spite of wishful thinking of the blueblood Republicans and the liberals (some spell that "moderates") in this country, reports of the conservative movement's demise are greatly exaggerated.

We should all be so bold as to look in the mirror and make an honest evaluation of where we stand.
Most will not.
