      Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said in an interview released Wednesday that the Republican Party must change by connecting more with working-class voters as well as people of color.

      “The future of the party is based on a multiethnic, multiracial, working-class coalition,” Rubio said in an interview with Alayna Treene of Axios.

      Rubio, who was defeated by President Trump in the 2016 GOP presidential primary, has positioned himself to be at the center of the debate over how the party evolves going forward.

      “If the takeaway from all of them is now is the time to go back to sort of the traditional party of unfettered free trade, I think we’re gonna lose the [Trump] base as quickly as we got it. … We can’t just go back to being that,” he said.

      Until they get the votes, and then they pivot back to stfu and swallow.  Later, rinse, repeat.  Re-branding is also known as pandering.

      America is not a country, it's just a business. (Brad Pitt, Killing Them Softly)

      "Sometimes when I try to understand a person's motives, I play a little game. I assume the worst. What's the worst reason they could possibly have for saying what they say and doing what they do? Then I ask myself, 'How well does that reason explain what they say and what they do?'" Baelish

      Sling that propaganda. Has worked pretty effectively so far on Latinos. Especially since the Democrats have effectively become the party of the cities and rich suburbs.

      dead armadillos in the center, of the road, if you are ethnic. I suppose there are a few non-racist Republicans who vote with their wallet. Does Rubio plan on buying that many votes?

      We will stick you in cages, separate you from your families, feed you lead-laden water, and make great promises with each election cycle.

      They may fall into that by default considering the Democrats are becoming the party of coastal elites, celebrities, and the rich.

      Do you look at the Democrats in power right now and say, “These people are in favor of the working man.”? No. So these voters then look for a place to go. And they see the GOP drifting towards populism, at least as far as their messaging is concerned. So working class people who are angry at the government establishment class….who are they voting for? Republicans.

      We can sit here and laugh at this all we want. But the fact remains that as it stands, the GOP is in prime position to retake the House in 2022. If this is chess, the Democrats may have just captured the queen here, but Dems are not in good position right now.

      How are they going to do that and still serve their rich masters?

      Not that the Democrats don’t have the same problem.

      Donald Trump isn’t wrong when he says that Republicans are now the party of working class voters.The Democrats are now the party of Big Business.

      Now it’s on the Republicans to figure out what to do about it.

      He’s got the Batista Fan Club in Miami believing that he’s one of them, and they all line up to vote for his lame ass. Truth is, he’s not really part of that crowd at all. Sure, he’s of Cuban ancestry, but Marco’s parents actually moved to the US in 1956 to get away from Batista, not from Castro!

      Of course being the political protege of Jeb & the Bush Crime Family probably helped him sell that image, as they’re the ones who have been gaslighting the Cubans for decades, all because Nazi Grandpa Prescott had a personal grudge from Castro nationalizing his sugar plantation.
