Will the GOP split along those lines or will they try to keep those different bases together again in 2016?
The current taking point is the "deep bench" of young non-Anglo GOP talent such as Marco Rubio will cure any problems with the Latino vote - I guess the theory is that old white voters who will not be pleased with a GOP shift on immigration are not going to vote for Hillary in 2016 under any circumstances

I am for anything that avoids the rest of us being dependent on Florida needing to run a competent statewide election
