Mathematically speaking, unless something major changes in the US, it’s never going blue again.
The US population is massively urbanizing. Rural jobs simply don’t exist anymore, they’ve been automated to death. There’s no opportunity for kids outside of the various Megalopolises in the US; the Eastern Corridor, Los Angeles, etc.
Every kid who leaves a red/purple state and goes to a blue state makes it that much harder for the Dems to win the Senate. The Dems might take Texas in the next decade, but that’s just two senate seats and they’ll lose a lot more of the heartland. On top of that Texas is asking for a bruising anyway, being entirely reliant on fossil fuels AND being directly in the path of global warming, but that’s a thought exercise for another decade.
I don’t see a solution to this issue. Progressives want to attack “centrists” and lose even more Senate seats to the Republicans. I personally don’t see the value of letting Republicans win when trying to pass a progressive agenda, but hey.
“Centrists” are the only way to win the Senate. People who deny this are nuts. It’s better to get SOMETHING (ie: Obamacare) as opposed to letting things GET EVEN WORSE.
