Do you think the next President will be a Republican or a Democrat?

And if they are a Republican, that is going to suck royally because one, it means that a significant amount of our country folk whose synapses are barely firing decided to give the Republicans another try. And two, that Republican is going to be a ton worse than W. Bush.

1. Impossible to say 4 years before the next election.

A lot can happen that can change the fortunes of either party.

4. A Democrat (at least in party affiliation)

20 years ago that person would have been a middle of the road Republican, but the GOP is such damaged goods now that anyone with the ambition to be President will likely have a (D) after their name.

6. At this point, I think a Democrat will win...

We will have to see how successful Republicans are at polishing the turd that is their brand.

If they gian seats in 2014 as they did in 2010, then they have a better shot.

If they nominate another tone deaf idiot, then a Democrat will get elected.

If they nominate someone who makes a real show of being a centrist, they will have a shot.

7. Democrat. This country will become a banana republic, if not.

Republicans are too insane.

11. in the race between a Dem, a "rational" repuke, and a teabagger, the Dem will win

The teaparty is splitting the repuke party in two. My big hope is that either the "rational" repubs or the teaparty split off to form their own separate party. Then we'll see the Dems get 40% of the popular vote, the rational pukes get 30%, and the teaparty get 30%. It will be like Perot all over again.

15. Based on the demographic changes....

...and the damage the GOP is doing to itself, I'm going to bet the next President is a Democrat.
