It needs to redefine itself: Right now from a public appearence standpoint the republicans seem to represent: Corperations, wealthy, white, anti immigration, and evangilical. Clearly such such a mix is not winning in our current demographic environment. Solution, I don’t know.
The dems have the women, young generation voters, latinos, blacks, asians, and a higher percentage of the higher educated, progressive approach tword imigration.
One formula is winning and gaining steam the other is not.
Maybe its a issue of the Republicans moving closer to the center on immigration issues. Latinoes socially fit right into the Republican party; they are Catholic, family oriented, and socially conservative. Repubs might want to lighten up on their immigration stance…if you notice many Republican states are all on the border and they tend to be very immigration friendly with a high number of latino voters.
Within a generation it is expected that the percent of latinos will bypass whites as the demographic majority. If you are looking at future survival than that should be your new target voter. If the dems clinch this demographic as they did the black vote, the Repubs may not have a future.
It’s more then pocket book issues.
