Missing word round

Guess which party is being referred to in the following piece:

"many [?] are horribly embarrassed by their party's positions and actions on fiscal policy, foreign policy, and social policy. Furthermore, many [?] feel that their party has lost its ethical compass.


Some argue for new leadership turning the party back to its roots. In some ways that old [?] Party would be better suited to today's world and to the future than the one we've seen over the past few years.

Other [?] forlornly suggest that before the [?] can really retool itself and rise phoenix-like from the ashes, it must first burn to the ground. It might even take more-sweeping electoral losses for the party to hit bottom, they argue. Only then, they say, could the [?] abandon its illusions and offer a more attractive vision for the future."

Not the Labour Party, but the US Republican Party.

I believe the observation you make about the plurivocal causation of unhappiness is properly referred to as the 'Anna Karenina principle', ("Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way"/"Все счастливые семьи похожи друг на друга, каждая несчастливая семья несчастлива по-своему") after an observation on the domestication of mammals by Jared Diamond.
