Stephanopoulos Predicts Possible Civil War Among Republicans
ABC News' George Stephanopoulos talks what President Obama's re-election means for the country on "World News" with Diane Sawyer.
DIANE SAWYER, ABC NEWS: So give me your bottom line on the Republicans now. We talked about the soul-searching, what do they do next?
GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Soul-searching, perhaps a civil war. You've got to look at this party right now. They have won the popular vote only once since 1988, in the presidential race. And it was probably best summed up by Al Cardenas, the head of the American Conservative Union (ACU). He said the party is too old, too white and too male. They lost young women, single women by almost 40 points, Hispanics by almost 40 points, blacks by more than 80 points. This is a party that has to create a much bigger tent.
