    Washington (CNN) -- When presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney appears before Latino small-business owners in Washington on Tuesday, he'll address a group whose explosive birth rates foreshadow a seismic political shift in GOP strongholds in the Deep South and Southwest.

    "The Republicans' problem is their voters are white, aging and dying off," said David Bositis, a senior research associate at the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, who studies minority political engagement.

    "There will come a time when they suffer catastrophic losses with the realization of the population changes."

    Over the next several generations, the wave of minority voters -- who, according to U.S. Census figures released this week, now represent more than half of the nation's population born in the past year -- will become more of a power base in places like Alabama, Mississippi and Georgia. That hold will extend across the Southwest all the way to California, experts say.

    The GOP is going to openly become a white nationalist party, it's the only thing they have left.

    They're dying off so fast that they've replaced the Democrats as the majority party in the last two decades.

    Republican voters are dying off

    Mostly from morbid obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, smoking-related diseases, and heart attacks.

    All preventable, if they practiced any of the personal responsibility they preach to everyone else.
