    "There's a real demographic problem with the Republican Party," Buchanan said. "It is a heavily white party, quite frankly. And as a share of the electorate, that is diminishing and Hispanics are growing very rapidly, Asians are growing rapidly, and by two-thirds they tend to vote Democratic."

    Buchanan told Hall that the party is losing young people as well.

    "Young people increasingly are more liberal and more socially moderate, and they move away from the Republican Party," he said. "These things are undeniable, the Republican party ... is in tough shape."

    Republicans have 70% of the Cuban vote, and 30% of the Latino vote, it's all the Blacks who vote 90% Democratic that makes the Republicans look "white". Is there a problem with this? Does anyone actually need the Black vote for anything?

    Holy crap

    Buchanan is absolutely dead on.

    Too many old white people in the GOP.

    Old white people did a lot for this country when most of the population was old and white.

    Pat Buchanan is pretty straightforward.

    He speaks the truth.

    When has the blacks voted overwhelmingly for a Conservative candidate since the realignment of 1950s?

    The Republicans have never needed the black vote, and probably never will.

    74% of voters are White.
