Abramowitz, Teixeira Say GOP's 'Whites Only' Strategy Will Fail

A Republican strategist said last August that the Republican Party's 2012 naked appeals to racism "is the last time anyone will try to do this."

It's Summer 2013 and the GOP is singing a different tune now, exemplified by Sean Trende's minorities-don't-matter analyses.

Alleged GOP efforts to reach out to Latinos and African-Americans have given way to renewed conventional wisdom the Party can win elections by increasing white turnout and doubling down on racist appeals.

Read The Democratic Strategist (TDS) Memo by Ruy Teixeira and Alan Abramowitz: Why The 'GOP Can Win With White Votes Alone' Strategy is Doomed to Failure."

Reading Teixeira and Abramowitz is like reading Nate Silver in October 2012.
