McCain is starting to show a certain attraction to many bedrock conservatives that must be based on his war record and service, and this trumps their worries about his less than conservative fides — or at least allows them to accept McCain’s won’t-make-that-mistake-again changed views on closing the border, tax cuts, etc. Privately many conservative voters have looked at the polls and know McCain does best against the Democrats.

Sean Hannity: (To Senator McCain) Do you think your willingness to change your position towards securing the border first helped a lot?
John McCain: Actually, I didn’t change my position…

That certainly doesn’t sound like a “won’t-make-that-mistake-again changed view” from the Senator.
Senator McCain’s line about lowering taxes during his victory speech was a bit confusing, too– considering he did not vote for the Bush tax cuts.
Obviously, conservatives are worried after McCain’s win.
