Great analysis. I'm sure there are more reasons. But reading yours, what strikes me is that the root cause is the abandonment of the true course of the Republican Party -- conservatism colored with respect for the country, the population, and the process -- in favor of an unmoving, strident, right-wing self-righteous strain of selfishness which colored everything, and underlay all your points -- it led to the destructive nominee cluster who dominated the airwaves for a year; it drove away any thoughtful moderate except the egotist you mentioned. It rejected traditional principles, took irrelevant extremist positions, and led to full buy-in to the extraordinary number of flat-out lies on which the critique of Obama was based.
