Will a Republican Ever Again Win the Presidency?

It’s all about the information war — conservatives have far more information and better proposals than the political lefties — the problem is, not nearly enough American ever learn about any of it.

Here is Steve Feinstein writing at American Thinker:

The chances of a Republican victory in a presidential election are continually diminishing with each succeeding cycle, to the point that a Republican victory from this point forward will have to be regarded as an exceedingly unlikely occurrence.

There are three main reasons:

1. Demographics

We’ll look at this in the post-World War II era only, because that’s the time period most relevant to this discussion. According to official U.S. Census data, the percentage of the U.S. population defined as White has declined from 89.5% in 1950 to 72.4% in 2010. Black percentage (yes, the Census uses ‘Black,’ not ‘African American’) has gone from 10.0% in 1950 to 12.6% in 2010. But it’s the Hispanic category that has shown the most dramatic change, rising from 2.1% in 1950 to 16.3% in 2010, with the vast majority of that gain from 1990 onwards. Conventional wisdom says that Republicans get a large portion of their voting support from “traditional” White voters, while the Black and Hispanic blocs are cited to be substantial majority supporters of Democrats. It’s quite clear that both the raw percentages and the demographic trends are moving very strongly in the Democrats’ favor and will continue to do so, for reasons that are well understood.

2. Liberal media bias

The mainstream “traditional” media (TV, print, over-the-air radio, etc.) is overwhelmingly liberal and favors so-called Democratic causes such as Pro Choice, Affirmative Action, various Green/Alternative Energy initiatives, gender/sexual-orientation-based policies, relaxed immigration, a less prominent military posture, etc. The new media like Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat etc. are also liberally-slanted, since time and again, intentional or unthinkingly automatic-but-unintentional anti-conservative biases and actions have been revealed at these sources. The only overtly intentionally-conservative media outlets are some AM talk radio programming, certain Fox News cable TV opinion shows, like Hannity, and websites like Americanthinker.com, Brietbart.com, or Daily Caller.com.
