It's really bad news in political science circles for the GOP.<quoted text> The GOP....needs to adapt....a bit, at least..
To make a extremely long story short their alienation of hispanic americans have severly harmed them electoral college wise. Even adapting a more immigrant friendly ideology in the presidental election didn't help them and in the long run it looks like Florida may be becoming a blue state permanently instead of a battleground state.
With such a large state becoming for the foreseeable future democrat it badly hurts republican chances in future presidental elections. It'd be like if democrats lost california level of bad news for the GOP.
It is far too late politically for them recover in the long run.
What is even more bad news for the GOP is that it seems as though the country as a whole is becoming more and more liberal with the majority of americans on average being pro-glbt rights, pro legalizing pot, pro higher taxes for the wealthy
Say hello to a democrat president 2016, 2020, 2024, 2028, 2032 and so on for decades to come cause I do not see how they can recover politically.
