I know some here don't care for fivethirtyeight, but this is an interesting read.http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/the-end-of-a-republican-party/
Being mad at numbers because you don't like how they add up doesn't make the site publishing the numbers look bad. Quite the opposite, in fact.
Fivethirtyeight has a proven track record of getting it right so I have nothing but respect for thier work. This article is spot on. The Republican Party is going the way of the Whigs. It's hard to see a way for a party that is getting older, whiter, more southern, and more poorly educated as anything but an evolutionary dead end.
Including Maddow, Hayes, Larry O'Donnell, etc......
Usually over one sentence, out of context, that's enough to set them off.
and maybe a few paragraphs or excerpts.
I was a little shocked when I first came here at how MANY things people here did not seem to care for :p
But it's a huge, diverse audience, so I guess that's to be expected
