Barnicle: Trump’s Republican Party Is Getting Increasingly Older, Increasingly Whiter

‘Trump’s Republican Party is getting increasingly older’

EXCERPT:

BARNICLE: “I would bet you, knowing what we know about Donald Trump and what we know about his presidency thus far, that he is unphased by the results of the Democrats winning the House, that he looks forward to a continued fight. That's who he is. He’s a brawler. He is going to get up every day and fight someone. But one of the more interesting aspects of last night’s results was the Trump victories, and they are Trump victories, bringing specific people into the United States Senate, defeating a couple of major all-stars, as you indicated, for governor, Democrats who lost, is the demographics of last night. Trump’s Republican Party is getting increasingly older, increasingly whiter, increasingly rural. In other words, almost getting close to life support.”
