Chairman Reince Priebus and the Republican National Committee released a new 100-page report from an internal task force on the party’s status after November 2012 defeats and, unsurprisingly, things don’t look so good.
The report recognized that “public perception of the party is at record lows,” and ”young voters are increasingly rolling their eyes at what the party represents, and many minorities wrongly think that Republicans do not like them or want them in the country.”
The findings say that the GOP is seen as the party of “stuffy old men” and needs to change its ways.
The report calls for extensive expansion of GOP outreach to minority communities, and among ideological recommendations, it advises that the GOP must embrace “comprehensive immigration reform,” and on social issues “must in fact and deed be inclusive and welcoming.”
President and CEO of FreedomWorks Matt Kibbe and Sirius XM Program Director Reggie Hawkins joined “Wilkow!” Monday to discuss the GOP’s attempt to remake itself and the focus on messaging and outreach to minorities for the GOP.
