Buchanan: GOP is a "Heavily White Party," Faces Demographic Problems

Speaking to MSNBC anchor Tamron Hall on Tuesday, Pat Buchanan said that his party has a major "demographic problem."

Buchanan said:
"There's a real demographic problem with the Republican Party. It is a heavily white party, quite frankly, and as a share of the electorate, that is diminishing and Hispanics are growing very rapidly, Asians are growing rapidly, and by two-thirds they tend to vote Democratic.

"Young people increasingly are more liberal and more socially moderate, and they move away from the Republican Party "These things are undeniable, the Republican party two months into the Obama Administration, or three months in, is in tough shape.

"I went though the Goldwater disaster, when we were down to 140 House seats and we were dead forever, and I came with Nixon in '66 and we won 47 House seats and we won 5 out of the next 6 presidential elections. I don't think that's necessarily in the cards, but I think it'd be foolish at this point when Obama is at his peak, really, to write off the Republican party for 2010."

This is a very white party, frankly, and because some voters, who are in decline and Hispanics are growing very fast ...

Patty Buch can hope for a comeback all he wants, but until the GOP reform their stance on immigration, they will continue to push away large segments of conservative-leaning Asians and Hispanics. No matter one's stance on social issues like abortion or gay marriage, it's hard to support a party that wants you, your relatives, and/or your kinsmen out of the country (except when they need railroads built or fields farmed).

well The President Obama and the Democrats should wave the white flag in their strawman war on Rush Limbaugh. The Media Research Center delivered the grim casualty figures for the Democrats.
