GOP problem: Their voters are white, aging and dying off
Doesn’t matter how much you scream, or how many times Palin vomits on her Screechwall on Facebook, or how many signs you carry showing our President as a Kenyan witch doctor, or how many teabags you hang from your hat — if your protest sign says ‘I want my country back’ — it ain’t happening.
“The Republicans’ problem is their voters are white, aging and dying off,” said David Bositis, a senior research associate at the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, who studies minority political engagement.
“There will come a time when they suffer catastrophic losses with the realization of the population changes.”
Over the next several generations, the wave of minority voters — who, according to U.S. Census figures released this week, now represent more than half of the nation’s population born in the past year — will become more of a power base in places like Alabama, Mississippi and Georgia. That hold will extend across the Southwest all the way to California, experts say.
The coming political revolution could result in a massive changing of the guard on nearly every level of government, potential cultural clashes, and the type of political alliances that are now considered rare.
