    That's a very good job of ignoring/deflecting to what's going to happen

While many of those leaving California aare going to Texas, the real reason the state has been trending less red is illegal immigration. That is now getting shut down to a trickle. Texas will not go blue any time soon.

    The exodus from California may flip Arizona, but it is not a given. After all, people fleeing California are not well disposed toward something in the state.


    Don't say never, but the state is moving from pink toward red.


    That's one reason. High taxes is another. Why do you think so many Democrats are moving to Texas and Florida--no state income tax.


    Nice turn of phrase, but many of the posters have no idea what boilerplate is. To me it sounds like a talking point page.


    A guarantee is only worth as much as the person giving it.

    I have been studying Immigration/demographics on my own for 15 years. You just might want to rethink that.

    That almost sounds like a contradiction no?

    Let me tell you a little story of the 2018 Dem Senate race in New Mexico. For years I heard how much of a Bad ass Hispanics were against illegal immigration in New Mexico(LOL)
    Then, in 2018, they voted for a Dem who got a "D" rating from NumbersUSA(Against high number/illegal immigration ORG)

    keep the faith

    So, you are counting on continued illegal immigration that votes Democrat. Cheesy. You might want to rethink that.

    We had almost 100,000 illegal immigrants per month for 30 years, because no one wanted to do anything about it. That has changed. Also, the assumption that they are natural Democrats is based on some dubious assumptions. Immigrants tend to have more conservative social and fiscal values than the national average.

    And just how does that have anything whatsoever to do with how united or not united either party is?
    Democrats were for the border wall before they were against it!

    True...though would specify that as legal immigrants. The illegals are primarily seeking entitlement handouts that US libruls promise them....such as free healthcare and welfare.

    The Tea party is the biggest single reason the republicans took the House of Representatives as well as most state legislatures in 2010 and the Senate in 2014. That was excellent disruption.
