And the trend though slow is clear. If the current national alignment holds long enough, with Blacks having a higher birthrate than native Whites and northern White immigration to the Charleston area, South Carolina will become a swing state eventually.

Charleston county swung and trended against Obama.

Charleston County went from 61.9% White and 34.5% Black in the 2000 Census to 64.2% White and 29.8% Black in the 2010 Census.  The Black population of Charleston County actually went down from 107K to 104K.

True across the state, which went from 30% black to 27% black over the same period. Demographic changes will likely make SC more Republican over time.

That's really surprising SC must be one of the only states with a shrinkibg black population share (other than maybe some caused by hispanic growth). Why is thathhappening statewide there?
