The Death of the GOP

I’ve been running a non scientific poll asking if Donald Trump was hurting the GOP. Everyone who has responded has agreed that his is.

With that in mind I came across this article at FiveThirtyEight about the death of the GOP. While I don’t make political predictions I find the history and arguments in this piece to be interesting. If the GOP may not be dying in name it certainly is no longer the party of Lincoln or Eisenhower. I think there is an argument for claiming it isn’t even the party of Reagan.

It remains to be seen just how much the GOP reflects today’s American society but if Hillary does win by the margins FiveThirtyEight and others are predicting it would certainly go a long way towards arguing the end of the GOP.
