bad caulking?

I have used Sherwin William caulk and DAP caulk but it keeps peeling away from my baseboards in some places.

What is a good type of caulk that will not separate from the baseboards? The baseboards are painted with Sherwin Williams Divine White semi-gloss paint. This will make the 3rd time I've replaced the caulking.

Nail the bottom edge of the baseboard to the bottom plate more often so that it can't move. And caulk sticks better to wood that has been primed. That baseboard has pretty clearly not been primed.

Its not the caulk or paint, I use both, its either the boards are loose/drying out in the winter, or your seeing normal shrinkage from the the dry winter!
