    Re: End of the Republican Party?

    I mean....George W. won twice, so it would seem he was a legitimate candidate, even if he was a poor president.

    On the democratic side, it's not like John Kerry, John Edwards, Howard Dean, and Al Gore were all that impressive either.

I also see the Upper Midwest of Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin becoming marginally more conservative. Until '08, Wisconsin and Minnesota were trending redder and I think that trend might continue.
    Interesting take. Both Minn/Wisc are pretty blue. I'm not so sure I see them trending swing. Iowa on the other hand has always been on the fence. Light blue but definitely could be a swinger, same for New Hampshire. Connecticut on the otherhand is going to remain blue for quite a long time.

    In 2000 and 2004 which were relatively even elections Gore and Kerry only won Minnesota by a few points and Wisconsin by less than one. And Bill Clinton won both of them by about the same percentage that he won the popular vote in 92 and 96, although Perot might messed things up there. They have been holding bluer than I would expect this year though, so maybe they are starting to shift back.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting

    Something dies when people stop supporting it.

    I'd agree they haven't had a compelling candidate in what seems like forever, but they clearly aren't dead. Bush Jr won -- twice -- and no matter how pitifully unfit the candidate, they still get a large minority of the vote.

    The Republican party is alive and kicking. It just happens to be losing its marbles.

    If it doesn’t live up to its promises than I think it will die. Slowly more and more people will vote for a third party. They will not vote for the democrats.
