A Bunch Of Old White Guys

July 30, 2012 § Leave a comment

“It is a bunch of old white guys. Unfortunately, a lot of them are fat like me. We need to basically broaden the base. We need to have more women. We need to have more Latinos. We need to have more African Americans.”

  • Edward Rollins, Republican strategist, July 10, 2011
  • Source: Fox News via The Huffington Post (video)
  • Context: Rollins was asked by the Fox News host about the criticism of the Republican Party that it is “just a bunch of old white guys.” Although having the support of just over half of the White Caucasian population of the United States, the Republican Party has found it difficult to expand its voter base amongst minorities. His voice is among several that urge the party to expand its base, citing that demographic changes could make the party irrelevant in the coming decades.
