The demographics of this country have changed dramatically since Reagan was elected president. There are plenty of exceptions, but we are now a party made up of mostly straight white men over 35 and married women, along with the Religious Right, the crazy uncle in the attic. The RR is a big turn off to single women, gays, lesbians, and the 20% who are true liberals. If the republican party separates itself from the RR (which I do not think it could ever do), then all we have are straight white men over 35 and married women. That is not enough to win national elections, or state wide elections in many states, but there are areas where straight white men over 35 and married women make up a majority, thus the results in the house.

What can the Republican Party, or conservatives, do to attract those people without becoming the Democrat-Lite party? What can we do to appeal to those people without losing what separates us and makes us conservatives? I don't want to see a drift to be more moderate, but going hard to the right, with a large dose of Religion is not going to win national or most state wide elections.

What to do?

We spent billions of dollars and billions of words on an election to switch from President Obama, a Democratic Senate and a Republican House to President Obama, a Democratic Senate and a Republican House.

Every election predictor was wrong, except one: Incumbents usually win.

Republicans have taken out a sitting president only once in the last century, and that was in 1980 when Ronald Reagan beat Jimmy Carter. Sadly, Reagan's record remains secure.

The Democrats ran up against the incumbency problem in 2004. The landslide election for Democrats in 2006 suggests that Americans were not thrilled with...
