The 2016 electorate, demographically speaking, will be worse for Republicans than 2012. And unless Republicans can begin winning more of the non-white vote, the 2020 election will be worse for the party than the 2016 election. And 2024 will be worse than, well, you get the idea."

2. I like those charts.

Even worse if my anecdotal evidence is true for a large segment of second generation and recent immigrants is that many of those who are socially conservative, they still vote for Democrats. The reason is that they think Republicans actively hate them and they are for having a safety net since many come from places that don't have that and that is what they have escaped.

5. All of which makes it even more puzzling why so many Democrats

in politics behave as if they aren't Democrats.
