The GOP’s “Age” Old Problem Has Gotten Worse.

Well, it’s not like they can say that they weren’t warned. The “autopsy report” following the 2012 election was both blunt, and honest. It said that the GOP, in its current iteration, was dying. It’s core constituency was mainly white, older, rural, less educated men, heavy emphasis on the older. Every year, more and more older GOP voters were finding out firsthand what “God friended me” really means, and little to no fresh, new blood was coming to replace them. The report admitted that an overhaul of this magnitude was going to be a multi cycle undertaking, but stressed that it had to be done to save the party from extinction. It advised slowly and gently extricating the party from the far right wing Evangelicals who gave it a rather extremist religious image, as well as maintaining their core principles, but relaxing the rigidity of the orthodoxy to attract new members, as well as becoming more culturally tolerant in regards to sexual orientation and minority status. The document was a well researched, well thought out, well planned path forward for the party. Which meant that the RNC was able to save money on the cost of Charmin for a few months. Rather than turn to the difficult path of ensuring the party’s long term viability, the GOP decided to try to squeak one more election out, win the Presidency, and start the rebuilding process in the next 8 years. I think. It’s impossible for a mind that can comprehend the purpose of shoelaces to interpret Republican thought. But instead of rebuilding from the foundation up, the GOP turned to a racist, narcissistic, 70 year old Tasmanian Devil, who promptly finished the job of demolishing the GOP’s “Big Brothers House.” Well, if Donald Trump was supposed to be a dessert in the going away party dinner for the retiring old GOP, he turned out to be a slice of moldy pound cake, and guess what? The waiter just slid the little plastic tray with a piece of paper on it onto the table. Yep boys, the check is due. Over the weekend on MSNBC, Voto Latino president Maria Theresa Kumar snagged my attention. In the interview, she said that their polling and statistical analysis showed that in 2020, for the first time, there would be more voters under the age of 46 than there would be voters over the age of 46. Yep, the Baby Boomer train is pulling into the terminal. The voting population is finally becoming a majority that is younger, darker, and more feminine, exactly the three demographic groups that the GOP, under the tutelage of the Tangerine Tantrum, has done everything in their power to alienate. One would think that this wold make 2020 a walk in the park, but as with most things in life, there’s a catch. Voters under 30 tend to be the most erratic, unreliable voters since the Nikelodeon Kids Choice Awards. They are not ideology or dogma driven, eschew labels, and tend to show up only when issues that directly affect them are at stake.But younger voters also tend to be more progressive and tolerant, and mostly also still tend to believe in facts, something that the GOP ties to a stake and sets fire to a mound of branches under at every chance it gets. In 2018, the Democrats benefited […]
