    Did you watch any of their convention? It looked like a rally at a senior center - and very few faces of color were seen.

    Are all old white men greedy? No. All they all Republican? No. But I'd say the majority of Republicans are greedy old white men.

    That's not a huge group anymore, which leaves a lot of old white men free to be Democrats and Independents.

    •  When you look at the exit polls (1+ / 0-)

      from the election, it's clear that there are plenty of people who voted for McCain who weren't white, male or old.  And that's after the Republican party had already lost many of their previous voters.  I'm sure that the exit polls from 2004 and 2000 show even more clearly that there are a whole lot of non-greedyoldwhitemen who contributed to this debacle.

        I don't know about the demographics at the convention (certainly not very representative), but as for Republican voters, the majority aren't greedy old white men. The electorate is skewed, but not that skewed.
