The Big Story: Changing Demographics

The big story, it seems -- regardless of who wins, tonight -- is the changing demographics of the electorate, especially from whites to Latinos. The Republican consultant on MSNBC says GW Bush won 40% of the Latino vote in 2000, and Romney is going to get in the high 20s.... GHW Bush won 400 electoral votes with 61% of the white vote in 1988, and Romney is going to win in the low-to-mid 200s with the same percentage.

You gotta think this worry is somewhere deep in the conservative brain stem, and they are going to scream and flail trying to come to grips with it. The beatings will continue until morale improves. It won't be pretty.
