There is no way the gop can ever win an election again with the same demographic strategy that they ran this time. They will either need to move to the center-right or become marginalized. The far right is not majority territory in America ever again. They need to embrace hispanics and other minorities, but how will that sit with the Tea Party folks? They dislike hispanics and other minorities for undefined reasons… Further, their mantra is ideological purity and no compromising on anything. The GOP needs these guys because they are a big part of the base, but they are costing the gop power! Five senate seats over two cycles lost because of tea party fanatics! Buck, O’Donnell, Angle and now Akin and Mourdock! These are seats that were considered a lock for republicans!
How will the gop respond? Will they try and pull the far right toward the center or will they cut them loose all together?
This is going to be very interesting to watch.
