Rethinking the GOP's Demographic Time Bomb

Chris Cillizza: "It's a widely accepted idea that Republicans are sitting on a demographic time bomb: The GOP is getting whiter and whiter in terms of the voters it attracts even as the country is growing increasingly diverse."

"Marisa Abrajano, an associate professor of political science at the University of California at San Diego, doesn't dispute that basic notion in a new study of the electorate. But she does suggest that the time bomb may well have a very long fuse -- and that in the time before it explodes, Republicans could actually benefit electorally from a consolidation of the white vote."
