    i don;t see how the GOP manages to adjust in the next couple of election cycles. i think 2020 is the first shot they have at rebuilding the party at the presidential level, and i have little hope for their ever adjusting at a congressional or statewide level.

    we'll see what is to come in the next four years in CA, as the CA GOP starts to face the political reality of being totally shut out of their irredentist superminority veto . if they start running moderates and liberals again, and win nonwhite and youth votes in the process, the national party might be able to reform itself.

    i'm not holding my breath. i expect a regionally-inflected 3 party system before too long, with the left-center division being either de facto but kept within democratic primaries, or overt if the tension leads to an outright split.
