1. Their core is scared old white men. They can't really expand

because that core of scared old white men is just not compatible with any of the other demographics they would need to reach out to.

As it stands, with a billion dollars of advertising and control of the election apparatus in key states, they can manipulate almost enough people to win an election over the best candidate in modern history running a great campaign that was well financed. So the GOP can still win because we won't have Obama the next time. And if the election had been held a couple of days after the first debate, Romney would have won this time.

But that base of scared old white men is getting a little smaller each year as our population evolves. So fundamentally the GOP faces a structural problem deep into the future.
