Transcript for What's Next for America?
And now time to bring in co-an or the of "good morning america," anchor of "this week," george stephanopoulos, once again. So, what did we learn last night from the voters about the economy? Reporter: We saw the building blocks of president obama's victo victory. He blunted the bad economy by fighting governor romney to a draw. You see in the exit polls, one point. And then beating him on this issue of empathy. There was an empathy gap, by ten points, the voters thought the president was more in touch of their problems. He was brilliant in his rgeting of the voters he needed to get out. So, give me your bottom line on the republicans now. We talked about the soul-searching. What do they do next? Reporter: Perhaps civil war. You have to look at this party right now. They have won the popular vote only once since 1988 in the presidential race. And it was probably best summed by the head of the american conservative union. He said the party is too old, too white and too male. They lost single women by 40 points, hispanics by almost 40 points, blacks by more than 80 points. This is a party that has to create a much bigger test. Saying it's a wakeup call. Thank you so much, george.
