Future of the Republican Party

The Republican Party has seen its share of fractures, factions, and disruption of late: some in the party openly suggest that rifts within are caused by “right-wing religious nuts” and other extremists; others, especially the young in the party, complain that conservative platforms have become closed minded, racist, inflexible, and old-fashioned. How will the GOP build internal consensus on what it stands for? And who is poised to lead the charge?
