Democrats claim that demography is destiny–and that it’s just a matter of time before they dominate American political life at almost every level. Historian Donald Critchlow says they’re wrong in his new book, Future Right: Forging a New Republican Majority.

In a 10-minute conversation with The Bookmonger, Critchlow describes the GOP’s path to victory in the 21st century, whether Republicans have any chance of competing for the votes of millennials, and why Donald Trump isn’t the answer.

    Democrats claim that demography is destiny–and that it’s just a matter of time before they dominate American political life at almost every level.

    James Taranto of the WSJ might have something to say about that. His theory is that the opposite will occur, because conservatives outbreed liberals, and children tend to follow the tenets learned during their upbringing.

    Give me a break. 80% of Millennials support the unapologetically socialist Bernie Sanders… most have a higher opinion of socialism than of capitalism… they are in general irreligious and tend to focus inordinately on things like race, gender politics and group identity… and more than HALF say they favor the passing of new laws to criminalize “hate speech.”

    In other words, they are secular, statist, and unbeleivably PC.

    And yet the author maintains that this cohort — Bernie’s All-stars — would conceivably respond to a Conservative message??

    Sorry, friends, but that generation is lost to us.
