Bad News for Democrats

Most of the populations gains are looking to be in red states, with blue states bearing the loss. The article suggests it’s climate driving the migration. Except I think it’s the business and tax climate that’s more the issue than the weather climate. Texas gains the most, and Texas keeps taxes low, and maintains a much more business friendly environment than most other states.

This is people voting for small government with their feet.

  1. Ya, but like you say, people take their voting patterns with them.

    Please let McCarthy’s district disappear…

    Definitely economic climate, not “weather” !

  4. mobo says:

    The red states will merely turn purple.

  5. mrbill says:

    Yes, but most of the increase in the Red states are from Brown people who will vote Blue if given a chance….same as they always do. They will vote with as the usual “gimmee” victim groups.

  6. If one thing’s been clarified as a result of this election, it’s that the people moving into New Hampshire are doing so for the right reasons, and bringing the proper voting patterns with them.

    Pro-liberty, 2A-friendly, limited government supermajorities in both houses of the state legislature.

    That’s is good news. I didn’t realize the victory had been that thorough. Glad you’re a part of that Bruce.

  8. GOP also swept all five seats on the governor’s Executive Council, which acts as a checks and balance (or rubber stamp) on the governor’s office. Our spineless Democrat governor got reelected, but he’ll have as much power as a depleted AA battery.

    We knew we were taking the House, but not 298 out of 400 seats. And, the Senate was on our wishlist but no one was predicting 19 out of 24 seats.

    It’s going to be a fun two years.

    Dear Gentlemen, I fear mobo’s warning may be more realistic than we are willing to accept. New Hampshire not withstanding, let us take a look at Colorado.
    For decades, businesses fled tax heavy California for the friendly business climate of Colorado, only to bring with them their socially liberal voting trends. Now look at the devastatingly dissapointing election results this past November. I felt gut-punched when Democrats won every significant office.
    It took several years, but eventually Colorado started turning into California of the central Rockies.
    So I think it works both ways. Some red States get redder, but others turn purple then blue.
    Let us be careful not to celebrate too early.
