If many black and Hispanic voters view your party as unwelcoming and even racist to some extent, surprise of suprises: you are likely going to lose their votes by massive proportions. (It seems from the data that Asian voters may be similar to black and Hispanic voters in this regard.) If voters feel under personal attack by the rhetoric of extremists, then those voters are going to turn out and turn you down. See this column today on why it is important that one of our major parties make the transition from being the "Tone-Deaf Party"  to being again the party of Lincoln.
