I agree completely.
The Republican party may not be dead, but it's got a terminal illness. Every single demographic is working against it in the long run. Republicans are older, more rural, and more white. The Democrats are getting more voters every day among minorities and urban populations while the Republicans bury their seniors. When you combine that with the fact that the Republican social policies are firmly imbedded in the 1950s, you have a party that's dying.
