Yet kneejerk cynicism in how the movement speaks of government damages the brand and alienates independents and racial minorities.

Conservatives struggle to appeal to blacks and Hispanics, voting blocks that enabled President Obama’s wins. One messaging example: African Americans disproportionately work for government, and when conservatives rail against their employer, this can be off putting.
