20. The Question Answers Itself

Notwithstanding what Lindsey Graham said on the subject. Gerrymandering saved the Republicans in the House but the incoming Senate will be substantially more liberal than the outgoing Senate as a direct result of Tea Party "success" in the primaries.

Also, interesting to note that the one Republican that has won since Dole lost in 1996 got no mention whatsoever -- his name is George W. Bush. He is the one that created most of the mess we face today so nobody in the Republican Party wants to be seen with him. So what is this loser trying to say? The soul searching in the Republican Party will last for another 6-8 years. My guess is that the Tea Party will attempt to nominate a Hispanic like Rubio or Cruz, thinking that wins the Hispanic vote and give them the win. The huge problem there is that neither Rubio nor Cruz will support the Republican platform on immigration. Romney tried to have his cake and eat it too and that didn't turn out to well so I don't think you can just slap a Hispanic name on top of that and still be successful and that is why it will take another 6-8 years for the Republicans to respond. There is no clear path forward for them.
