Summary
If the 2012 nomination process taught the Republican Party anything, it is that there are internal fractures within the GOP that need to be worked out prior to the 2016 presidential election. When coupled with changing national demographics that are less than favorable, Republican candidates must determine a way to bring together the pro-business, Tea Party, and evangelical wings of their party together if they hope for victory.
