RNC's New Program Seeking New Followers

Alex Wong/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- The "GO" in GOP now stands for "Growth and Opportunity."

Republicans, still stung by losing the White House in November as well as failing to capture the Senate, are ready, willing and able to hear what Americans have to say to improve their chances during the 2014 mid-term elections and in 2016.

That's why as part of its winter strategy session, the Republican National Committee has unveiled its  "Growth and Opportunity Project," an attempt to attract more women, minorities and young people who are firmly in the Democratic camp.

A website has been set up to get ideas from Americans as well as to listen to their criticisms about the GOP.

Among the questions posted by the RNC are, "Do you think the Republican Party shares your values?" and "Do you think the Republican Party listens to voters like you?"

The RNC also lists five areas where the party feels it needs to improve in order to be more inclusive of a changing U.S. electorate.

What's more, the site features a short video of RNC Chairman Reince Priebus soliciting questions from potential new followers.
