    narrative wins. If Republicans believes they lost because of "demographics" (i.e. racism), then I could see house GOPers sucking it up and vote for comprehensive immigration reform, especially if Fox News is on board. They could justify voting for a pathway to citizenship by emphasizing the other parts of the bill, such as enhanced border security. However, if Republicans believe they lost because Romney wasn't sufficiently conservative or because the GOP's message (but not platform) was unpopular, then there's no way comprehensive immigration reform will pass the House. Right now, it's too early to tell which narrative is going to win.
