    Demographics doesn't just mean "is the black population growing faster than the white population".
    Yes, that's why I also considered growth of hispanics and others, the economic profile of the state, and migration patterns in my comment.
    the "retirment" population growth that you seem to think of isn't as Republican as the rest of the state as a whole, moving the needle just slightly toward us.
    If a state votes 60-40 for republicans and and gains a bunch of people who vote 55-45 Republican, that isn't helpful to Dems. It allows Dems to improve their percentage of the vote, but causes them to lose by a greater absolute number of votes.

    On the other hand, if demographic distribution of the population is changing in a way that's helpful to us, that's an interesting point; please elaborate...
