Realistically, when does the GOP stand a chance of regaining power?

I’ve seen people say they will be back in 2010 or 2012, but it sounds like sports fans blindly cheering for their team. I’ve not heard a reason why except "because the other guy will fail," which there is no way to predict.

Historically, the party having to defend the most seats will usually lose a few in a midterm election. The Democrats have more house seats to defend, so the GOP could gain some ground in 2010, but not much. On the other hand, Republicans who came to power in 2004 on Bush’s coattails will have to defend their Senate seats–there are more GOP seats up than Democrats in 2010.

As of 2008, 36% of registered voters are NOT white. This number will only increase with each subsequent election. If Republicans are content to complain about how the liberals only want to help minorities, how do they expect to win without tapping into that portion of registered voters? Not to mention not reaching out to gay or urban voters at all?

For the sake of the GOP, is there any strategy or movement afoot to address 100% of the voters, or do people really believe they can survive with only appealing to evangelicals, white southerners, and fiscal conservatives?
