I came upon this piece by Sean Trende, who pointed out the problem of the missing "Perot Voters" in the 2012 election that cost Romney the election (among many other failures).[The Case of the Missing White Voters, Revisited, RealClearPolitics, June 21, 2013]
The "Eisenhower coalition" he describes shows the way the GOP of the past and GAP of the future may yet be able to save this nation from subjugation. The white working class, which doomed Romney in 2012, and failed Chamber of Commerce nominees like Tommy Thompson (WI), Dennis Rehberg (MT); was the key ingredient to the success of Eisenhower's victory.
