  •  GOP is Out at the Presidential Level (2+ / 0-)

    For a generation or two.

    That party has made anti-black and anti-Hispanic hate speech a primary plant of its platform. The GOP will continue to suffer large defeats with these demographics until it re-engineers itself.

    And that will take years -- probably a decade or two.

    Meanwhile, the Senate is sufficiently gerrymandered to keep the White Nationalist party in the headlines for years and years to come. These folks will continue to trumpet their racially-oriented ideologies from their perches in small states as long as they wish -- presumably forever.

    That will make it harder for the GOP to remake itself.
