    The shift began in the late 80s with projections of larger populations of Latinos, Hispanics and Cuban-Americans. Astute business people know this.
    ...and the billionaire boys club who ran Willard's campaign didn't?  

    I was at a management seminar in the mid-to late '80's.  Most of us were fairly young, early to mid career white guys.  During the seminar, we were told something like, look to your left, look to your right.  The ethnic and gender makeup of the colleagues next you will change dramatically in the next 25 to 50 years.

    And then the seminar leader spent the next four hours talking about demographic trends in the U.S.

    Once again, this was in the 1980's.

    We're in the early years of that 25 to 50 year bubble right now.  It's only going to get worse for the Grand Old (white) Party.
