Conservatives Outproduce Democrats - Future Belongs to Repubicans

Kids are very likely to adopt the politics of their parents. Conservatives have 2.1 children per adult. Liberals only have 1.5. Its only a matter of time, according to this article, before even California will be safe for Conservative opinion again.

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 babies
I 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.
