Illegal immigration shows voting patterns, Texas. Facebook

How the demographic shift changed US voting patterns

Mass immigration has turned California from a "solidly Republican" state into a Democratic stronghold and illegal immigration is also transforming Nevada, Arizona, Texas, Virginia, North Carolina, many other states in the US.

    “California was once a solidly Republican state, for generations,” Fox News host Tucker Carlson noted. “It is now among the most Democratic.”

    “Why?” he asked. “Immigration. Different people live there. Not surprisingly they vote very differently.”

    “Something very similar is happening right now in Nevada, Arizona, Texas, Virginia, North Carolina, many other states, and that was reflected in last night’s vote totals,” Carlson explained on his eponymous show.

    Conservative pundit Rush Limbaugh meanwhile shared a graphic on Wednesday on his Facebook page showing how almost all the areas which border Mexico in Texas are now voting Democrat thanks to illegal immigration.

    “It is the single best graphic showing the need for a border wall you could ever see,” Limbaugh said. “It is stunning.”

    “If you look at Texas, if you look at this map of Texas, it is stunning,” Rush told his radio listeners. “Texas is scary to look at this way. It is 85 percent red except for Dallas and Houston and Corpus Christi and the entire border with Mexico is blue or light blue or gray.”

    “Texas has always been a big Republican state. Thirty-eight electoral votes. But you can see how the Democrats are encroaching there,” he said.

    “I don’t think there’s a single exception — every county of Texas, starting with El Paso that comes down and borders Mexico, is Democrat.

    Limbaugh said it came down to illegal immigration.

    “We haven’t lost Texas yet. The Democrats are not gonna stop until they take Texas. There’s 38 electoral votes. If they get Texas, they’ve got a lock on the presidency forever. California, New York, Illinois, Texas, that’s all they need.”

    Some 80 percent of Texas county by county is red, Limbaugh pointed out. “But take a look at that border with Mexico, and you see two little sections of pink there near El Paso. And outside of that, it is solid blue.”

    “That is one of the best graphics I could show you to illustrate the necessity of serious border control, however it’s done — a wall staffed about you numbers of people to keep people from coming in, however it’s done, that right there is one of the ways in which Texas is being taken over, invaded, infiltrated, whatever word you want to use.

    “Now, that’s a microcosm for the whole country.”

    In his latest column for  The New York Times, opinion writer David Brooks also commented on the coming demographic shift.

    “Here’s the central challenge of our age: Over the next few decades, America will become a majority-minority country. It is hard to think of other major nations, down through history, that have managed such a transition and still held together,” Brooks remarked.

    “It seems that the Democratic Party is going to lead us through this transition.”
