3. IOW, they made deals with devils in order to grab power

and now the devils have taken over. It was the same story with the Federalists and the Whigs.

The Republicans will sputter on for decades as a regional party, especially in the south and parts of the west, but stick a fork in them, their policies have been tried and have failed and they have no other ideas. They're done, even without all the devils.

What remains to be seen is what will take their place. Likely a whole collection of splinter parties will absorb the devils for a while, but eventually a new Hamiltonian party will form, probably on the ashes of one of the progressive splinter parties after their one or two major issues are dealt with. This is how it has happened in the past.
