Among white California voters, almost four in 10 are Democrats and four in 10 are Republicans. But among Latinos 55% are Democrats and only 15% are Republicans. Among black voters, 76% are Democrats and 4% are Republicans [...]None of this is surprising given the mounds of data showing similar results. It merely confirms what we already know: Absent a radical transformation, demographics will be the death of the GOP. Absent a genuine effort to rebrand, America is headed toward California-style single-party status. Sure, the Alabamas and Central Valleys will always exist, but as nothing more than an amusing sideshow.
Six in 10 white voters are over 50, making them prized in the present but not dependable in future decades. The reverse is true for Latinos, 64% of whom are age 49 or younger. Overall, among all voters, 35% of those 50 and over are Republicans; of those younger, only 23% were.
We'll always need someone to deliver a handful of Louie Gohmert-style crazies to Congress to keep us entertained.
