  •  The GOP is dying (0+ / 0-)

    Obama recieved by most estimates only 39% of the white vote and still won this wouldn't have been possible previously and is a sign that demographics are changing in a way that is long term unfavorable to the GOP

    Now 'dying' is a bit of a vague term, even at present course the GOP will likely still be a viable party up to 2020. Even then it's possible something could happen that would alter events but it will depend alot on events that have yet to happen.

    For example let's say the GOP continues as it has and in 2016 or 2020 TX and AZ become battle ground states this shocks the GOP into moderating but at that point it's an up hill fight.

    Or another example is that the 2 of the 3 wings try and kick the other wing out.

    Either way the GOP IS dying they're losing minorities and the younger demographics by margins that are not even remotely competitive
