Demographics are indeed destiny in electoral politics. All the states that gained population in the most recent census mainly did so because of a huge influx of Hispanics and other minorities. The United States is becoming less white and more diverse, and right now, those voters are overwhelmingly Democrats. The future holds potential Democratic breakthroughs in Arizona, Montana, Georgia and perhaps the huge prize of Texas, the last remaining GOP firewall against a landslide defeat.
