GOP Issues Scathing Self-Analysis

by

The national Republican Party released a scathing self-analysis Monday that party leaders hope will be the first step toward returning the GOP to a winning track after its election losses of November.

The report, issued by a Republican National Committee task force, minces no words.

“Public perception of the party is at record lows,” the report says. “Young voters are increasingly rolling their eyes at what the party represents, and many minorities wrongly think that Republicans do not like them or want them in the country. When someone rolls their eyes at us, they are not likely to open their ears to us.”

In page after page, the report—compiled over the past several months by five veteran GOP campaign operatives—describes the party as ideologically ossified, unable to speak to a wider electorate and increasingly seen as representing the rich and the old.

In focus groups, voters who said they had left the Republican Party described the GOP as “scary,” “narrow minded,” “out of touch,” and as the party of “stuffy, old men.”

Unless something changes, the report says, “it will be increasingly difficult for Republicans to win another presidential election in the near future.”

The report pointed to the country’s 30 GOP governors, saying they represent the future of the party, while criticizing the party’s representatives in Congress.
