It's going to take a massive, almost unthinkable change in GOP Philosphy. In essence, they'll have to backstab their base in order to do it. Even harder, they'll have to convince these people that they actually MEAN it - not just that they're paying lip service. After all, I wouldn't trust anyone who turned around and said they now believe the opposite of what they did a year ago without some serious discussion on the matter.

You mean as opposed to actively alienating them like they've done up to now?

/good luck

Just the other day there was someone talking about raising the voting age, since young voters are "too stupid to vote." Then there's the whole "anchor babby" thing, and creating laws that literally chase immigrants out of some states, and continuing to support these laws even though you now have food literally rotting in the fields because you've chased away the people that harvest it. Don't even get me started on the anti-female actions that have been coming from the GOP over the last couple years.

So, they need to court young female hispanics? Free sharpies for all!!!!!!

I hear they're also having trouble getting their message to resonate with the Brony demographic.

The repubilcan party has to make a big decision. Are there more members in their current base than there are youths, women, Hispanics, and "other" who might be interested in certain values the party holds? Much like the Democrats got rid of the "Dixiecrats" during the 50s and 60s, maybe it's time for the republicans to jettison some dead weight.

Of course, all this is based on the assumption that the republican party stands for something more than racism, sexism, and the good old boy network.

Republicans are experts at getting people to vote against their own interests. They aren't going to change their policies, but they are going to try and convince those groups that they are good for them.

For example: "Immigration reform? We are just trying to keep out the bad apples so that hard working American Hispanics can succeed."
 
2012-06-11 10:55:34 AM
What a coincidence that the GOP is also discouraging those people from voting. I'm sure that's totally by accident.

Marijuana legalization. Let's the 'libertarian' faction & Paulites have the win there. Then do something about funding the HPV vaccine, along the lines of "We don't like you sluts at all, but we want your vote more than we want you to have cancer".

As for the Hispanics, if they could tone down the immigration rhetoric a little, they'd be okay. Significant portions of the demographic are social conservatives. Maybe support some kind of better path to citizenhood, particularly for illegals with legal family here.

It wouldn't be perfect, but it would sway some of the borderline voters which is what the GOP really needs, and it doesn't compromise their core as much it could. I'd almost believe them if they started touting those things. Wouldn't vote for them, but I might believe they were trying.

Later, in a rare move, Senate Republicans opted not to filibuster a Democratic-led bill

fark.

Yes, I knew this already, it's just...fark. The system is so busted...
 
2012-06-11 11:05:53 AM
"face saving"?

Where does that come from? Obviously the GOP would like to gain ground/reduce the dems advantage among women and minorities and the young. With the goal of taking the senate and also to elect Romney. How that translates to "face saving" is a mystery known only to the columnist.
 
2012-06-11 11:06:28 AM
The GOP has the "We-Don't-Mind-A-Vaginal-Probe-Involuntarily-Shoved-Up-Our-Hoo-Ha" female demographic locked up, so there's that.
 
2012-06-11 11:07:54 AM
Wouldn't it be easier to just stop those demographics from voting?
 
2012-06-11 11:09:04 AM
Since women didn't have the vote until 1920, nobody has been courting the women's vote for 100 years (except in Wyoming, maybe). The youth aren't coming out for Obama this year. And in regards to the Cuban, Mexican, etc. vote, well, as I recall the Democrats didn't do so well with the African American community for about 100 years up until about 50 years ago, so patterns can change.
 
2012-06-11 11:09:15 AM
How do they expect that to work with their current platform of "Breast cancer and unwanted babies for all except for Latinos, who need to GTFO"?

Actually they have, the idea was if they encouraged something among the women groups, those women would influence their husbands to vote their way.

You've got to do something.

"GOP needs to court the youth, Hispanic, and female vote"

The "youth" usually don't know their ass from their elbow. Women voters are generally no better than women drivers. Hispanics . . . I don't know what their problem is, but they too will eventually figure out that what Democrats are selling is not worth buying.
