TYLER: "You have to figure out how to get white affluent, educated women back from the suburbs, because when you combine that coalition with African-Americans and Hispanics, which the Democrats now seem to be solidifying, that would be a generational realignment. And if that’s true, the Republicans won’t be in charge for a very, very long time. I also believe, Chris, and it won’t surprise you, that the Republicans need to learn to stand up to the President when he is butting up against constitutional, traditional norms of the White House. And, yes, that may cost another seat, but it’s okay. Then you go back to being a citizen. But I think in the long run, the damage to the Republican Party is such that, I don’t know that the Republican Party survives, because what happens is, now the party is so attached to a personality, the way the Kadima party in Israel was attached to Ariel Sharon. It doesn’t exist anymore, when Ariel Sharon passed on. And when Donald Trump leaves, there will be no Republican Party anymore. I don’t know what will replace it, but I really don’t think — I don’t think that coalition exists anymore."
