They should be. I made a post on this a couple weeks ago that was scorned by other conservatives but I know better. 

 

There aren't enough whites to maintain the republican voting bloc. Soon they will be minority voters. The republican party is over. 

 

   Trump has burned a lot of bridges for the GOP...indeed the biggest bridges is women and the young voters...trump has turned the GOP into a male boomer party one that is now Ironically facing extinction in the next few decades..

White women still vote republican. So do young whites. Mostly working class whites. 

 

Minorities overwhelmingly vote Democrat. This is why there is such a push to let them in.

The real story of GOP losses in 2017, 2018 and 2019 is the suburban shift from red to blue.  Trump has reoriented the Republican Party toward the priorities and grievances of non-college-educated, evangelical, and rural whites. In so doing, he lost white-collared urban, suburban and, to an increasing extent exurban votes.

Republican strategists are deeply concerned. They know that Trump will cost them the Senate in 2020 but they are powerless to do anything about it.

 its a western phenomena, i see it in the u.k, where the great recessions has hit harder than the u.s which has a debt cushion..  the tory right wing is fighting this election for its life and even existence..its a party for the rich old folk...( last year it received more donations from dead contributors than  living ones)..simply the austerity and global crisis are making new politics as the boomers are in denial ..

That Paste article was interesting. Republicans are losing ground with women in all demographics but it is most marked with millennial women. Millennials are becoming an increasingly important voting demographic. 
 

I disagree with then Kfool’s argument that it all comes down to race. Millenials are far less concerned with race than we boomers were. Racial appeals are unlikely to attract them. Indeed, they may be alienated by them.

Anyone remember this meme?

Guess what...

Trump Surges with Suburban Women, Beats All 2020 Democrats in Large Donations. “Trump’s re-election bid is being boosted by a surge in large-dollar donations from suburban women, the new report by OpenSecrets.org has revealed.The figures show that President Trump is receiving more big donations from the key demographic than any 2020 Democrat candidate.”

Republicans Lost The Suburbs

https://slate.com/business/2018/11/suburban-republicans-are-officially-a-thing-of-the-past.html
 

 

Quote

 

There’s a geographic signal to Tuesday’s congressional results that bursts through the noise: Congressional Republicans have been routedfrom the suburbs.

 

Here are some Democrats who took Republican seats on the outskirts of major cities: Sean Casten (IL-6) in the Chicago collar counties; Sharice Davids (KS-3) in the suburbs of Kansas City; Jennifer Wexton (VA-10) in the D.C. suburbs; Kendra Horn (OK-5) in the suburbs of Oklahoma City; Angie Craig (MN-2) south of the Twin Cities; Joe Cunningham (SC-1) around Charleston; Tom Malinowski (NJ-7), Mikie Sherrill (NJ-11), Max Rose (NY-11) around New York City.

 

Many of those were among 2016’s 25 “split districts”—GOP-represented districts that voted for Clinton—and made for obvious targets. They’ve been sliding toward Democrats for years. Others lurched left after voting for Trump in 2016. But amid various confusing patterns—the GOP winning big state races in the South; Democrats’ big victories in Michigan and Wisconsin—the trend is clear. Republicans are getting blown out of the places where once, long ago, the party found its most dedicated voters and defined its priorities.


 

Just look at Texas, where headlines of Beto O’Rourke’s narrow loss disguised how much he did for candidates down the ballot. Two powerful, long-serving Republicans—Houston’s John Culberson and Dallas’ Pete Sessions—were defeated by Democratic challengers. “Everybody is going down in Dallas County if they’re a Republican tonight,” Texas Tribune CEO Evan Smith told MSNBC Tuesday night. Later, Pete Sessions gave a concession speech in which he explained what had happened: His conservatism had brought economic growth to Dallas (the so-called Texas Miracle, in which Sessions probably overstates his role), and he paid the price. “Unfortunately, that success was not enough to stem the liberal tide of people who have moved here from across the country.”

 

That might be right, in some places. Whether they’re leaving high-cost coastal cities or low-growth areas in the Rust Belt, Americans keep moving to the Sun Belt. This has changed politics in places like Texas and Georgia. A quarter-million black people moved to Atlantabetween 2010 and 2016, a bigger influx than anywhere in the United States. That’s part of what put Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams within striking distance on Tuesday.

That’s not all that’s happening, though. The Republican Party also went nuts, progressively alienating nearly all of its highly educated voters, culminating in the defection of the “Never Trump” Republicans, the last rats off the ship. And the suburbs changed too, as rings of white affluence became increasingly diverse, often home to pockets of poverty. The suburbs are younger now, and the family in the tract home next door is just as likely to have been priced out of the city as to have escaped it.
