GOP busy rigging the electoral college for 2016
Instead of the current winner-take-all system, Republicans want Michigan's Electoral College votes doled out based on which presidential candidate won each congressional district, with an extra two votes going to the state's popular vote winner. Republicans in Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia are considering similar changes. And, Republican Party officials, including RNC Chair Reince Priebus, have thrown their support behind the idea of rigging the presidential elections in Blue states.

If they can pull it off, it may be a long time before a Democrat is ever elected president again.

For example, President Obama swept the six main battleground states of Florida, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin last election. And since it's a winner-take-all system, the President got all of these battleground states’ 106 Electoral College votes, and Romney got zero.

But if this new election-rigging scheme had been in place last year, then President Obama would have only gotten 47 Electoral College votes from the battleground states, while Mitt Romney would have won those states with 59 votes, even though he got hammered in the popular vote in each of those states. And if all the states in the nation had gone along with this election-rigging scheme, then billionaire Mitt Romney would be our president today, even though he lost the national vote by millions.

That approach worked for the Muslim slimebag currently in the White house.

The GOP as it previously existed before the last presidential election is dead. No chance of them making a comeback unless they abandon everything and become Democrats. Seriously, demographics ensure that the GOP you have know is over.
