Two political analysts, including Michael Steele, say the disastrous presidential campaign of Donald Trump is good news for the GOP.
NineShift has predicted the GOP will win the White House in 2020. We stick with that prediction.
What the two political analysts say is that by hitting bottom, the GOP has the opportunity to redesign itself to appeal to minorities, women and Gen Y in 2020. Here's one story.
Don't know about minorities. Don't know about women. DO know about Gen Y. The GOP will indeed revise its positions to meet the needs of Gen Y. Here's two positions that the GOP will keep:
1.Support for business
2.Support for family values, although "family" will be redefined to include LGBTQ community.
PLUS the GOP will dump not just Trump but also its last-century positions on education, infrastructure, minimum wage, gay rights, civil rights for blacks, gun control, for a start. Essentially GOP will adopt Sander's agenda.
Wild Card: We predict GOP will win in 2020 based partly, but maybe primarily, on its advocacy for private passenger trains.
