    I mean, if we were going by 2008, it would have said "Democratic Plains!!!"

    Besides a few quirks, 2000 trends make for a pretty coherent result:

    I don't mean to re-hash the whole "Charlie Baker vs Joe Manchin" thing, but I could see this being the result of a race between a centrist Alabama Democrat with a running mate from Kansas, and a moderate New England Republican with a running mate from Minnesota.

    I really can't think of any Presidential Election where this was a possibility. it looks more like a map of senate or Gubernatorial races.

    IMG_9918.jpg My map is based on the principle of " of racism is everywhere why not just move south where it's cheap living and great weather " reverse great migration Atlanta starts looking like Boston in terms of education by 2050.cities get even more democratic even cities today that are swing-y this makes the South WAY more competitive as cities like Atlanta, Nashville, New Orleans, Orlando, Tampa etc have nearly NYC/ LA dem margins of victory of 30% or more the flip side is that rural northern counties are ruby red. The southern western and costasl suburbs are 50/50 as there way more racially mixed albeit mostly with highly educated biracial couples of white hispanic - non Hispanic white, Indian and East Asian and white coupling. By 2050 or so the children of today's current college students raised in affluent subdivisions and attending the best high schools and playing football and Soccor on the weekends that go off to state schools and get Woke -or woke-er as most of them where already passionately progressive on social issues even in there early teens they recall obama during elementary or middle school, they might have been able to for for sanders and settled for Clinton in the general. They screamed at their parents the and frantactly texted their friends night trump won. They recall the tweets the endless nonsense of the twitter president. The impeachment, Trumps epic twitter rant in the days following his removal from office, the year long Pence Administration.... America's first Jewish president, first PoC VP and female VP, they remember the Estonia crisis and the day the first western nation democraticly elected socialists into government, the rise of Green dominated Germany and the rebuilding of an EU with a more ecological and community based project.

    This is one of the more realistic realignments I've seen on here.

    Thanks my basic idea is where do I a young academic liberal want to live that is A affordable B opportunity such as museums galleries art organizations, universities etc that has an active queer community. So the future ar lest in the next 10-15 years is brewers Food trucks urban parks and cafes but there don't necessarily have to be in the urban core. Actually in most cases the urban " revitalized areas are being priced out and now younger but still hip areas are becoming places for the young to live. I see the republicans being almost totally consumed by trumpism no matter what happens and the party shrinking a bit but in return the democrats while moving Left certainly spand a spectrum of centerist Torrie to 90's Clinton democrats to Obama to sanders all the way to nut jobs that think there plants ... Democratic primaries are vicous and many states ( many southern states already do this ) have moved to jungle primary and it's not uncommon for there to multiple cycles where a republican doesn't make it to the second round in places like GA, VA, FL,NC. It's a rehash of 2016 Bernie vs Clinton almost every election with a few old timers still bringing up that the system is rigged. Although everyone has healthcare by the 2030's it's not purely single payer but care is priced at a sliding scale by income. The new big fights are over UBI, cybernetics and human genetic augmentation and planetary engineering. In the rural north is full of only the oldest white people, mostly those with only a high school diploma. Addiction, mental illness, and joblessness has destroyed these communities in a process that has taken well over a 100 years but it's common to go through an enter rural northern town with out seeing a single person under 30. The elderly wealthy and educated not at all the same thing especially by now live in retirement villas in Vermont and upstate New York as well as Canada and parts of the Midwest. As Flordia a steamy bustling but tragdicly flood and hurricane prone area.is seen as to risky to live in where you have to evacuate to Atlanta sometimes almost twice a year. Orlando is now in the top 20 largest cities in the us while ancient titans like Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Chicago shrink to under 500-300k.

    That doesn't explain my objections. A lot of countries have elected democratic socialists.

    2016 wasent a realignment it was the ever increasing trend that is pushing educated whites and minority to the left and uneducated whites to the right education after all was the best predictor of a persons support of trump not race or class etc. which actually makes a lot of sense when you think about it. I think that PA, MI are definitely going to be in play for at lest 2 of 3 more cycles before they go the way OH, IA, and MO have to be perpetually red. We might have many very close states every cycle FL, NC, AZ, and I think NV is still pretty swingy depending on the environment. Colorado and Virginia are blue and are going to stay blue the way Vermont switched parties back in the 90's but the margins are just rather close -ish buy predictable I don't see Texas going Dem at a GE level untill at lest 2032 and I feel the that state is going to churn out Republicans presidential hopefuls for much of the next few decades, P Bush, Cruz, Abbott...
