As the question asks do you think the Republican Party has any hope of electing a Republican President in 2016?
Do you think the Hispanic and African American Voters will prevent a Republican President from being elected any time in the near future.
What does the Republican Party have to do to win a Presidential election. Are we seeing the final days of the Republican party as a major political party. What do you think will happen if the Hispanics and African Americans keep blocking a Republican president from being elected. What do you think about this issue? How will it change America?
I will tell you that I don't support either the democrats or republicans. I think they are all crooks and we need to start over with a new party that is for Americans first and to hell with the rest of the world.
What do you think? What do you think about the future of the Republican party and how out of touch they seem to be with the average American. When do you think they will elect a U.S. President?
First, Thomas, my hats off to you as quite the prolific writer.
The lack of african-american or hispanic support is just a single facet of what is working against the GOP in its bid to win the White House. This lack of support from these constituencies is not enough in itself to derail the GOP's presidential ambitions. What is going to defeat them is an elitist attitude, implying that 47% of the country are deadbeats. They will be defeated by the majority of woman and young people who resent their busybody nature in regards to social issues. They are doomed to be defeated by an ever more educated and sophisticated electorate assoicated with the urban environment. So, it is not just AA and hispanics, it was also Jews and Asians that accounted for the Democratic victory last fall.
So, it is not so much who fails to participate more than it is the shrinking number associated with the GOP own loyal constituency. It is an attitude the seeks to suppress and shun its opposition, instead of engage and work to be a party with ideas attractive to a larger swath of the electorate.
So if they fail, they will only have themselves to blame. But 3 years is virtually a lifetime in the world of politics, so nothing is impossible. If the Dems disappoint, the GOP could win through its campaign of voter suppression combined with the apathy of a large part of the voting public. That is only way it works for them.
No, we are not seeing the end of the republican party. Don't forget that people asked the same question about the democrats a few short years ago. From Nixon to George Bush Sr., the late sixties until the early nineties, only one democrat was even elected president, and he was only elected for one term. Politics ebb and flow. Right now, democrats control the White House; as it looks, they may control it again in 2016. They do not have a majority in both houses of Congress, and they do not control the executive branch at the state level, with thirty of the governors calling themselves republicans. Eight, twelve, or even sixteen years in the White House does not make a political dynasty if that party doesn't control Congress or the states. It's just how politics work, and it is not the end of the republican party by any means.
Well like 2000 election. It is not the vote that counts, it is who counts the votes.
By what standard do you forecast this doom?
Is it fair to deduce that you see anything other than the Democrat agenda as the road to perdition?

How can any American support the Republican Party???They are out of touch with reality and really don't care about the middle class and poor. We can only hope that the Hispanic people will vote for the Democrats and keep a Republican President out of office any time in the near future. Have you...

One of the reasons we won't see a republican president in our lifetime is because Democrats recognize the fact that in order to win the presidency the democratic candidate has to be a " Republican Light " but the republican base is not willing to accept a " Democrat Light...
