I don't think Republicans will change much. Just continue to be who they are....a party split by moderates and conservatives.

But I agree with most people that they will remain a minority for a while. Probably become a loyal opposition.


I suppose it is possible that the party will choose ideological purity over contemporary relevance, but somehow I have a hard time believing that those in the party who want to run things will just leave it at that. Surely there is someone in the Republican party formulating an updated or new image/policy prescription in the wake of the last election? Something that might potentially attract the voters who are up for grabs? Even more pressing, perhaps a message that will appeal to the faster growing elements of the US population?
