If the election results told us anything, it's that the GOP has some serious soul searching to do.

But Mr. Obama carried his key groups so easily that Republicans should give him props for such a feat— and start taking notes. ...
Most kids my age bristle at the word "conservative," and I don't blame them. The right has done nothing to welcome young people.
If Republicans hope to win in 2016 and beyond, they need to change everything about the way they sell themselves. They're viewed by the 18-24 set as the "party of the rich" and as social bigots. ...
