Stacey Abrams: "The Sun Belt expansion (by Democrats) is what will drive the next 30 years of elections"
The change is slow, but it continues. Abrams narrowly lost her race for Georgia's governor to a conservative republican in what has been considered a conservative state. Abrams is a liberal black democrat. There is a trend showing a demographic shift in many historically red states, like Georgia.
"These states aren’t turning blue because conservatives are suddenly discovering their inner AOC. The shift is driven by demographics—what demographers call generational replacement,' urbanization and increasingly, the migration of blue-state residents to red states. Worryingly for Republicans, these new arrivals have brought their voting habits and blue policies with them. Author Kristin B. Tate calls it the 'liberal invasion of red state America.' She believes that companies and people are fleeing high-tax/low-growth blue states for low-tax/high-growth red states. She says, 'Harris County [Houston] where I live has absorbed a huge number of people from California. A middle-class family can afford a home here.'”
The change will be slow, but it is a sign of a change that will impact future elections. The sunbelt expansion, as Abrams puts it, will change the dynamics of election perhaps in the near future.
