Demographic shift usually benefits Dems

A tea party activist and New York Times bestselling author believes if the current demographic shift continues, more and more states will turn from "red" to "blue."

During the last several presidential elections, it has been increasingly more difficult for Republican candidates to put together the right combination of "red" states to win the presidency.

On the other hand, Barack Obama and the Democrats were able to depend on populous states like California and New York and usually Pennsylvania to deliver their electoral votes to the "blue" column. Even Florida has moved from a consistently red state to a battleground state. 

Corsi, JeromeDr. Jerome Corsi is a contributor to TeaParty.org and is the author of the e-book Saul Alinsky: The Evil Genius Behind Obama. He says the country is closer to a breakup and a rebellion than it has ever been.

"I've been asked more and more times, Where do we go? Is Texas going to secede? I don't think Texas is going to secede, but Texas is going to fight back on the 10th Amendment," he tells OneNewsNow.

"And there's going to be a lot of Californians moving into Texas -- and consequently Texas may not be as conservative in 20 years as it is today."

Corsi notes that California is not the only state that, because of people relocating, has caused traditionally conservative states to turn "blue."

"You look at the states in the Northeast that used to be solidly Republican in the 1950s, including Vermont and New Hampshire, and all of the migration coming out of Boston has dramatically changed the composition of those states," he remarks. "It's the same in the West -- Colorado, Nevada -- states that were solidly Republican 50, 60 years ago are today influenced by the migration out of California."
