Interesting.... states that are seeing population/diversity growth are shifting D, and those that aren't are shifting R. Short term hurts the Ds, but long term...

Say goodbye to Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Ohio, and Michigan's Senate seats. We may gain the same amount of EVs, but that's 4 or 6 seats we're down in the Senate.

Is this really the future of the two parties: Republicans as the party of whites and Democrats for everyone who isn't white? If so, I think that says something deeply disturbing about where we are not only as a democracy but also as a country.

We won't be noncompetitive in the rust-belt for senate races for a long time.

Plus, including IL, PA, and WV there are currently 12 dem held senate seats. Including AK, the D trending sunbelt states have the exact same amount of R held states.

People who think Texas will become a Democratic state are out of their ing minds.  At best, it will be a swing state that the Republicans will go through hell and high water to win every single cycle.  Plus, I'll bet a LOT of money that the Senate and House delegations will remain in GOP hands either way.

TX is solid red for now, but the fact that Trump won it by a smaller margin than Iowa worries me. If Trump does well during his first term, perhaps he will win it by a similar margin as Romney.
