A state that was split 50-50 between left and right in 2004 will tilt right by 2012, 54% to 46%. By 2020, it will be certifiably right-wing, 59% to 41%. A state that is currently 55-45 in favor of liberals (like California) will be 54-46 in favor of conservatives by 2020--and all for no other reason than babiesI suspect that almost the entire effect seen here can be traced to one source. Abortion. I'm certain that liberals have way more abortions, and those very abortions may cause a swing in the population that ultimately results in enough voters to OUTLAW abortion. Pretty cool.
