61. It's telling me that Republicans are dying faster...

...as a result of their own policies.

http://www.worldlifeexpectancy.com/usa/life-expectancy-white?order=0

And it's fastest in states with the most Republican control. For white males, the obvious cornerstone of the GOP, the states with the lowest life expectancy are:

West Virginia
Alabama
Mississippi
Oklahoma
Kentucky
Louisiana
Arkansas
Tennessee
Nevada
Georgia

Not counting Nevada, which is often a tossup, that's 76 electoral votes that are demographically changing faster than all the others. Not in any way that is good for the GOP, because they rely heavily on hateful old party-line voters to carry them.

Now, the hateful old party-line voters in Republican states are dying three elections sooner than yellow-dog Democrats in Hawaii. This is the beginning of the end for the Grand Old Party, which has existed as an evil entity for eight years less than their entire history.

I hope I'm still around to piss on their grave. But probably not, as I'm an uninsured white male in a southern state.
