- The continuing problem for the Republican Party is the country's changing demographics. Groups that form the core of GOP support -- older whites, blue-collar whites, married people and rural residents -- are declining as a proportion of the electorate. Groups that lean Democratic -- minorities, young people and single women -- are growing. The challenge is obvious: Republicans can't win a presidential election by trying to grab a larger piece of a shrinking pie. That helps explain why Republicans have lost the popular vote in five of the past six presidential elections. If America's demographics still looked the way they did in 1980, when Ronald Reagan was voted into office, John McCain and Mitt Romney would have won the White House. -- website.
