Really? Don't be too surprised when they fail to notice...
It will take at least three election cycles.  The first and second ones, they'll proclaim their problem was that they weren't conservative enough.

It might take more election cycles for the "old white crazy (get off my lawn you damn kids) guys" to die off before the Republican party (and note I give them their whole name as opposed to the Republicans who keep referring to the "Democrat" party when it is the "Democratic" party).  Regardless, the Republicans are fighting to keep voters who are now entering assisted-living facilities and will stop voting soon.

You can't (successfully) fight demographics.

Yeah, that's another thing that's coming into play, they're losing their base to natural attrition.  I'm just not sure the country can hang on while we wait.

Well, first, I am hoping for good results in November.  I am pretty sure the Republicans will suffer major loses in the elections.  The House is likely and the Senate is possible.  That is a likely historical result.  If that doesn't happen, we are in for at least 2 more horrible years.  And it may be time to take to the streets if that happens.

Except there is no progress, so demographics or not, you always end up with a new bunch of monkeys replacing the old bunch of monkeys.  No way to progress that way.
