Can the GOP get anywhere without Hispanics, black, and most criticly, WOMEN in this general election?

Posted by: TBR

The GOP is on track to once again alienate hispanics, blacks, women, LGBT and the usual "undesirable". Can they win with only white-christian-men?

  • Yes

  • No

57% 4 votes
43% 3 votes
  • They've done it before.

  • Considering the stellar job the Democrats are doing, more people will vote GOP or independent. The question is whether that will be enough to send the Democrats packing.

  • Most voters are women. The GOP needs to reach out to more than just white men.

It all depends on who the Republicans pick as a candidate. 47% of Americans tend to lean more democrat while 42% lean more republican. Marco Rubio for instance, despite being very young, is high on the list of people the democrats don't want to run against. He has the potential of taking away many of the hispanic voters from the democrats, which would be fatal given how close the percentage points are.

The republicans aren't going to get Hispanics just because they run Marco Rubio. The GOP policy's are killing them with that voter-block. Rubio could narrow the gap, but not win them the demographic.

@58539672 - Look at the demographic splits. The GOP has the exact same problem they have had for the last several election cycles. The gains in the midterms was due to incredibly low turn-out, aside from that, every demographic they need is repelled by their platform.

@TBR they don't really need the whole demographic to have a big impact. Just using Rubio cuban ancestry in, lets say Florida, could help them win enough hispanic votes in the state to push it more toward a Republican victory. Gaining Florida, a swing state, is a very valuable set of points in the electoral college.

Young Cubans are not excited about Rubio. All I am saying is, the craven "lets run Rubio, and we will get them" is not a winning strategy. Same thing happened with Palin - they thought "well... We have a woman, right?". That's just not going to work.

I think Rand Paul has been reaching out to minorities more than any other candidate. He wants to decriminalize drugs, restore voting rights to felons, and offer school choice to poor kids.

Rand Paul is (at this moment) the most dangerous the GOP has to offer on this score.
Texas14 says2015-07-05T15:02:40.2337093-05:00
For sure. Ben Carson and Marco Rubio are minorities but they don't offer as much to minorities as Paul.

@Forthelulz - Do you ever talk to, or listen to anyone outside your group? You are not seeing the reality, the GOP has much higher negatives than republicans right now.
