Think about this.
2004 elections, www.cnn.com...
A difference of 281,870 Votes
Lets look a bit closer, www.cnn.com...
Most of the state is red, Howver New Orleans Is all Blue, Meaning its
a primarily democratic city, The majority of the population Are
Now lets look at
A difference of 1694213 Votes
Now, A large portion of the Louisiana evacuees, are and have been moved to
texas, Most of these evacueees were Black, By that standpoint, We
could assume by previous statements, they are Black Democrats,
Its been stated that most of these evacuees will most likely not
return to Louisiana,
or More specificaly, New Orleans
Now last number i could find texas, took in 250,000 evecuees, now 250,000 black democrats will
probably not have much effect on the texas vote, assuming they stay,
But, 250,000 Black democrats, Who might not return to New Orleans, will however shift that vote.
Both states were red in the last election, But, Now the gap in louisiana will be much more in favor for the republicans then it was before.
