If you are the type that believes that the GOP has to deal with the Latino vote, then you also must believe that Obama has a BIG problem with people 65 years and older. Obama got crushed in that demographic. Hell he even lost seniors to Romney in California.
Fine, throw out the latinos if you want.

Romney was freaking destroyed by the millennial generation. The young voters of today arent the slackers of Gen X, the millennials out-voted those seniors you are talking about, and they aren't even all eligible to vote yet. The millennials are bigger than the baby boomers, and if they are going to be reliable, progressive voters, then things look really grim in 2016 and 2020.
