GOP Not Ready For Demographic Changes

New U.S. House: Women and minorities to the left; white men to the right – CNN.com.

Nothing incredibly surprising in this article but the important factor to note is the changing demographics in the United States going forward and how clearly out of touch with the minority groups the Republican Party continues to be.  I mentioned before how this election was a big win for progressive ideology and, in some ways, this could be a very historically important election if this begins the trend toward a more minority conscious government.  The coming change is inevitable but it doesn’t appear as if the Republican party is ready for it or even close to being prepared to take minority concerns into consideration in their policy choices.  The idea of a “big umbrella” for the GOP just isn’t true for now.
