Republicans Can't Win With White Voters Alone

Republicans Can't Win With White Voters Alone | Regional Geography | Scoop.it

"An influential set of conservatives argues changing demographics won't doom the GOP, but the smart money -- and the math -- are not on their side.  This much is undisputed: In 2012, President Obama lost white voters by a larger margin than any winning presidential candidate in U.S. history. In his reelection, Obama lost ground from 2008 with almost every conceivable segment of the white electorate. With several key groups of whites, he recorded the weakest national performance for any Democratic nominee since the Republican landslides of the 1980s."
