    I found this while researching RGS's thread in the Current Events forum http://www.usmessageboard.com/current-events/99224-the-top-2-states-people-are-fleeing.html.

    I wanted to see what states were gaining population.

    This is what I found.

    Washington is the only traditionally blue state gaining population.

    The rest are all traditionally red states gaining Congressional seats at the expense of blue states.

    No wonder the Dems wanted ACORN to conduct the Census.

    It won't happen though. Obama has moved the Census into the White House. The census will be a political tool and the numbers will be cooked to aid the democrats.

    What you don't mention is that the increase in population is not in white males. Increasing hispanic (legal) population is accounting for a major increase in red states.
    With the ever decreasing inclusiveness of the Republican party, you will see more formerly red states turning blue

    You think that they vote 95% democrat? think again, the GOP generally gets ~45% of their votes, and way more on issues like gay marriage.

    They used to...they used to

    Until the GOP went ape shit on Sotomayor, until they allowed their racist element to lable all hispanics as illegals, until they started to push English only legislation

    Don't kid yourself. Some of the most vocal voices against illegals are legit Hispanics. Maybe they don't want the "plato o plomo" crowds in their hoods?

    I don't think Obama and the Democrats will be getting too many votes from the Dust Bowl they created in Central California.

    You got it. The increases don't necessarily mean more votes for Republicans. The increasing population very well may mean those red states will be purple in a few years.
