An Update on Republican Candidate Recruitment for 2014

After the 2012 elections, the House Democratic Caucus hit the milestone of becoming the first-ever caucus in history that was not majority white male. At the same time, the House Republican Conference actually became even more white and male-dominated than it had been before the 2012 elections.

It looks like their party wants that backward trend to continue in 2014.

According to a newly released ABC News/Fusion poll

  • 60 percent of Democrats say it would be a good thing if more women were elected to Congress. Only 23 percent of Republicans believe the same.
  • 50 percent of liberal Democrats say electing more nonwhites to Congress would be a good thing. Only 5 percent of conservative Republicans think that.
