National Journal's Alex Roarty: Many Whites Will Eschew an All-White Political Party

National Journal's Alex Roarty contends that younger white voters (i.e. millennials) view diversity positively, and if the GOP were to embark on an electoral strategy of maximizing white voter turnout without seeking meaningful minority support, then failure is likely to follow.  Per Roarty, white millennial voters are unlikely to find a practically all-white GOP to be appealing.

Alex Roarty: Many Whites Will Eschew an Exclusively White Party

"But if the GOP determines that its future lies with an all-out pursuit of whites, it might find an unwanted surprise. Some white voters, particularly young ones, won’t align themselves with a party that can’t attract support from Hispanics, African-Americans, and Asians. To attract more white voters, the GOP, ironically, might first need to attract more minorities."
