    HISTORY:
    It is astounding to me--that a party that I have been a part of all of my life (Republican) no longer represents me. I have donated to Republicans and have been on political boards promoting Republican candidates, but I can no longer do that. I used to be a member of the Tea Party back in the 2009/2010 era very concerned about our exploding deficits and government spending. I dropped out when the far right of this group made their 2012 platform about abortion, who's going to pay for birth control pills, and what is "legitimate" rape questions which was always answered by an old white Republican male. In 2012 Women went running from the party by double digits, we lost younger women by a whopping 36 points, which secured a 2nd term for Barack Obama. Anti immigration reform was also a topic back then, & Romney only collected 27% of Hispanic group, when historically the GOP needs at least 40% of this group to win the White House.
    GOP Win Will Need More Than 40 Percent Of Latino 2016 Vote, Says Study
    The GOP's woman problem goes beyond Trump

    Not learning anything from the loss in 2016, they put up several candidates that could in no way capture the woman vote, that they lost in 2012 because of extreme abortion stances. Mike Huckabee, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Scott Walker, Bobby Jindhal, Rick Santorum, & (Ben Carson & Marco Rubio-who continually flip-flop on this issue depending on what right wing group they're in front of.) You see women do believe that their lives are worth saving, and they aren't going to vote for anyone that doesn't believe the same. All of the above candidates are swimming upstream against a 91% population that does believe in giving exceptions on abortion to the life of the mother, rape and incest.

    MATH
    Today they have done it again this year by chasing away 17% of population (Hispanics). I live in Colorado where we depend on Hispanics to get Republicans elected. They were extremely beneficial in getting our new Senator Cory Gardner elected in 2014. They have now moved back into the Democrat column insuring that Hillary Clinton will win this state in 2016, due the activity and the hateful rhetoric coming from Donald Trump & his supporters.
    GOP gains traction among Hispanic voters with aggressive outreach campaigns

    Republicans are the minority party at 41 million. Democrats are the stronger party at 46 million, and the largest voting block today are independents who make up for 40% of the entire electorate. While the rino-establishment groupies have been busy attacking their own party, they never noticed that the Republican party continues to shrink.

    Hillary Clinton is going into this race with a 6 to 10 point advantage as the 1st woman POTUS in 200 years.'
    Women are the majority voters in this country representing 54%, and they outvote men by 10 points.

    Donald Trump and his supporters have successfully run off the Latino vote, and he is currently polling at a Negative 75% within the 17% Hispanic voting population. Again we needed at least 40% of this group to win the White House. This will roll over on any GOP candidate chosen.
    Poll: 75% of Latinos Have Negative View of Donald Trump

    After being on political boards for 15 years--it is very discouraging to see this happen to the Republican party. It's out of ignorance & hate toward large voting blocks. The Tea Party member lives in a world of right wing talk radio and Fox News-& that's all they know. Their world is going to come crashing down on them on election night when they witness the unadulterated POWER of women and Latino voters on election night. It wouldn't surprise me to see us lose the Senate and a ton of seats in the House. Clearly we have lost the Hispanic vote for decades to come.

    I anticipate this election is going to remind us of one long ago. You can change the states around but the electoral vote will be about the same. Just switch Reagan's name to Clinton, & Carter's name to any candidate the Republican nominee will be.

    yawn......your credibility in political punditry strains credulity.

    Weren't you the one practically guaranteeing that "Carly" would be the nominee a few weeks ago? She's at what? 2 or 3% now?

    Women do not vote in blocs and neither do "hispanics".

    With those numbers it's impossible for anyone to win in 2016, including Carly Fiorina. She could get women--but with Latino's changing their party status from Republican to Democrat in mass, and many who have never voted in their lives registering to vote, it's going to be impossible to overcome for any Republican regardless of who the nominee is.

    It's not rocket science--just math.

    Not unless you can eliminate women & Latino's from voting in 2016--you might have a chance at this.

    France just changed the numbers. Deportations and walls are part of America's future now.

    At this point I do not see the majority of women relating to Carley Fiornia .
    She lacks the warmth and approachability needed to capture the average woman who is not a CEO.

    Again, the point of this thread is no Republican candidate is capable of winning the White House with these numbers. Until the right wing of this party aka Tea Party aka Rino/Establishment groupies finally realize that Republicans are the minority party, and it's not a good idea to chase off large voting blocks (women & Hispanics) in this county, they will continue to lose National elections.

    Until these same people realize that this nation is a center nation, and they vote for moderate candidates, not far right social conservatives, they will continue to lose National elections.

    No. It's not math. it's conjecture.
