Republicans Have Lost the Popular Vote in 5 of the Past 6 Elections?

Serious question here, what does it mean for the republican party if in the past 6 presidential elections, from 1992 to 2012, they have lost the popular vote 5 times?

992=Lost by 6 million votes

1996=Lost by 8.5 million votes

2000=Lost by 550,000 votes

2008=Lost by 9 million votes

2012=Lost by at least 3 million votes

Only in 2004 did they win the popular vote and that was by 3 million.

Does that spell trouble for their collation? Can they keep up with the changing demographics of this country?

    Before yesterday .. the Dems had only won one election in the last 10 years. That was 2008. House/Senate included. So don't go there.

    And since 1980 .. only 12 years have been a Democratic President. 40% of the time. So you guys are a minority.

    One Republican analyst said last night that if the GOP doesn't do some serious soul-searching, the Republican Party will fade away like the Whigs. It turns out that you can no longer win an election with only the votes of angry white rich men.

    Actually, the Republicans are addressing the changing demographics, but when someone in those changing demographics groups get slurs hurled at them for embracing them, the ability to make greater inroads becomes more difficult.

    i opt to ascertain the human beings ascertain, no longer the electoral college. that is not any longer actual democracy. the yankee human beings might want to unite and take over their personal u . s .. connect Occupy Wall highway or the Teaparty. both are in search of for a better u . s . which does no longer have corruption and businesses talking for them.
