    •  NOLA is growing up again (4+ / 0-)

      Shreveport's bluing NW Louisiana, the Baton Rouge metro is bluing.  the only parts that are reddening are the SW bayous.

        but Orleans Parish is less than 8% of the state's population. It'll take a lot of time for that growth to become demographically meaningful.

        •  And is New Orleans' growth (1+ / 0-)

          really increasing beyond where it was before the last decade, or is it just making up for a temporary post-Katrina drop?

            pre-Katrina. And I would add that to the extent Lousiana's political hopes depend on an influx of white liberals re-populating New Orleans (an idea I've heard bandied about)... there's barely over 100,000 white people in the parish, and obviously not all of them are liberal, vs. 2.75 million in the state as a whole. That dog's not gonna hunt.

          And if it's part of a larger mosaic, which I'm saying, it really helps.
