Yes, they know what they need to do. They just have insane ideas about how to do it is all.



GOP Nominee Needs 64 percent of the White Vote and 30 percent of the Non-White Vote to Win in 16

Does Presidential Racial Group Voting Data Since 1976 Spell Doom for Republicans?

By: Myra Adams

For example, a recent Real Clear Politics interactive turn-out calculator shows that for the Republican nominee to win the White House, he or she must capture at least 64 percent of the white vote. (This assumes the white and non-white voter turn-out numbers remain historically consistent.)

The need to achieve 64 percent of the white vote should be extremely disconcerting for the GOP because since 1976 there have only been two presidential elections where the Republican nominees won over 60 percent of the white vote and that was in 1984 and 1988.

On the non-white vote side of the equation, respected Republican pollster Whit Ayres predicts that the Republican nominee must win at least 30 percent of the total non-white vote in order to win the White House.
