…not see the extinction event ahead:
More interesting to me, though, was what came at the end of the poll. The pollster tried to figure out just what the base thinks its party should do now to help it win future elections. On this, the base was more split, but pretty remarkably so.
It provided them two options: focus on messaging to expand its appeal, or focus on changing voting rules to try to win with the voters it has.
Nearly half of Republicans — 47 percent — chose the latter option. Just 53 percent preferred a strategy more focused on the GOP’s message.
Why would they want to change being the party of old, white, Xristian, straight, cisgendered, misogynist, men when they can just outlaw anyone else from voting?
