    That is my evidence.  The GOP has been signing the racist siren song for so long that folks who would be tempted by  are already in their camp.  

    The professor's editorial provided no evidence that immigration reform and the recent wave of Hispanic immigrants is powerful enough to change existing liberal voters into GOP voters.  Voters who would reject a candidate on the basis of immigrant reform support were never liberal voters in the first place.

    Lovely Faulkner quote.  Doesn't change my mind nor negate my BA in history bub.

      Again, the point is that the changing demographics might--might!--change peoples' views on these issues to the extent that they might get lured to the (new, rebranded, less outwardly crazy) GOP. The author might be wrong about that, but at least he gave evidence for his view; you have yet to give me anything but your own opinion.
