The reality is The USA has long been a mosaic, but this election slammed home the reality to the racists and bigots on the right that White, while it is still "Right" is no longer might. 

The Republican party has become the party of White male protestants and Catholics. 

They're getting older and shrinking as a demographic factor in elections. 

Obama won with Women,  Blacks, Latinos, Asians, Jews, muslims,  singles and parents with children under 18 at home and people under 30. 

These are the future of the USA with all of these, except perhaps the Jews and parents with children under 18, growing as a percentage of the population. 

The challenge the Republicans face is doubled by their failure to face it head on. They use racism and religious intolerance to get out the vote. They base their identity and branding on fear of others. And most of the demographic groups that added up to a win for Obama and the senate are on the outside-- female, immigrant, non-Christian, non-white. 

Combine that huge disadvantage with the reality that young people are coming out stronger, and staying voting against conservatives-- and the Republican party is doomed.

Here's a discussion of some of those dooming demographics.

Asians

Bloomberg.com reports,

For a little perspective, consider the votes of another minority -- Asians. Romney won among all voters making more than $100,000 a year by a margin of 54-44. Asian-Americans happen to be the highest-earning group in the U.S., out-earning whites, and they generally place enormous emphasis on family. A perfect fit for Republicans, no?

No. Asians voted for Obama by 73-26; they were more Democratic than Hispanics

PewSocialTrends.org reports,

" 18.2 million in 2011, or 5.8% of the total U.S. population, up from less than 1% in 1965. 3 By comparison, non-Hispanic whites are 197.5 million and 63.3%, Hispanics 52.0 million and 16.7% and non-Hispanic blacks 38.3 million and 12.3%."
and regarding politics,  here's a graph from the Pew poll cited above
