I chuckled when I read this part "...may not feel compelled to pay attention to broad-based public opinion, because what they're really concerned about is the opinions of their specific Republican constituencies"

That is exactly what a representative government is! Each elected official is supposed to act in the interests of his/her own constituents, not what the officials or constituents of other areas think is in the best interest for the "common good."
