Nate Silver is clueless. He’d be happier if he slit his wrists

That the Reagan coalition is still viable, or that such things as “Reagan Democrats” actually exist. The GOP got killed among Asian-Americans, who logically should be strong GOP supporters. The GOP is not even asking itself why.

I really hope people stop obsessively trying to discredit polls. They aren't gospel, but in the last two elections they have been fairly accurate, and if anything, slightly republican leaning.

Go back and check the RCP final poll average for the 2010 Senate races - 20 of 23 correctly senate seats picked correctly. Of the the 3 that were incorrect, 2 dems won instead of the predicted republican, and the last was Murkowski beating Miller in Alaska. And obviously, polls were better than GOP cheerleaders this time as well.

The dumbest thing I hear around here is "no one polled me."

Can somebody tell me why Asian-Americans vote for democRATS? You're right, Mr. Jeeves... logically they should be strong GOP supporters.

WHY do they vote for 'RATs? I don't understand this...

I still think Silver is just fed numbers, but they were correct numbers.

I think the “likely voter” construct has to be reworked.

I also think we are in a cycle where this new demographic wave will turnout in Presidential Elections but not necessarily off year elections. So 2014 might be more like 2010 and 2016 more like 2012/08. Making connections between off years and Pres years.....not really indicative.

The voters weren’t winnable.

We are seeing the damage of 30 years of the teacher’s union molding minds.
We are seeing the damage of giant social saftey nets from cradle to grave.
We are seeing the damage of the new elite consiting of government union employees with billions in out elections.

I can go on and on and on.

Because the GOP has been branded as racist redneck hicks that all people of color should be deathly afraid of no matter what other reasons may be put forth.

We didn’t understand why Obama won in 2008. We thought maybe people wanted to give him a chance, he would be historic first black, post partisan and all that hopey stuff. Then they’d get over it.

Maybe he won because they really wanted a leftist.

I think the leftist Democratic party will turn on him once Obamacare is implemented and they see how much it takes out of their pockets and how hard they work to keep from paying benefits. It will work great like a newlywed groom the first year then get ugly as it rears it’s true colors. Now he doesn’t have to listen to what they have to say and they will get to see what he is really about.

Trade war with China didn’t help. But they could also be like non-Orthodox Jews.

Well the GOP had better move heaven and earth to dispell that myth NOW, or they will cease to be a party...

They will see? Maybe they saw and liked what they saw. Look at Sweden. They still keep that going.

I think folks forget that the GOP isn’t called the “stupid party” for nothing. The mistakes they and Romney made this election are legion. Marquis of Queensberry rules don’t mean much at a south Chicago street fight.

Our only hope now is real economic collapse (on a catastrophic
scale) that will be so devastating that it will bring about
a huge revolt against the Democrats.

Or it might even bring a military coup.
