How can the republicans make up for the downward trending demograpics? Surely you dont think going farther to the right is the solution?
The Republican base has to change the way it talks about immigration. I for one don't see Hispanics as being locks to vote Democrat, so long as they continue to put issues like abortion on demand and gay marriage above every other issues.
