Moderate/swing/independent voters respond to personal charisma and the perception that somebody "knows what they stand for."

He laughs at the idea that secularists rule the left, and also calls on Democrats to stop parroting right-wing talking points on that and related matters. Worth a read, although, as my subject line says, I didn't find anything there that seemed to cover novel ground.
