While I get your point, there are some "red" states at the top of the list also. Voting habits are one criterion among many in evaluating a state.

you mean the blue states that send illegals out after pretending to want them by creating sanctuary cities?
Is this referring to Cuba? Not a State, last time I checked...so relevance being? (If it was Cuba, would be interesting to see how things would've played out without a 50 year Embargo)

Suburb of Detroit
I just beyond words how the left and even the right loves to twist things around or show stats that are basically meaningless to "prove" a point. A good example is FDR (a democrat) setup social security which is a well known socialist program, but when social security started showing its age and vulnerability then all of the sudden it's the Republican's fault or they are the ones that are "dependent" on because of their statistics. I liken this to major league baseball stats, it seems that you can find a useless stat on almost any player or team. I laugh when the broadcaster says such and such has hit safely in the last 10 out of 12 games or something like that, yet the player has a .190 batting average.

I live in a suburb of Detroit and I always shake my head when I hear the news that the Murder rate of Detroit in the nation based on murders per capita is number 1, yet Chicago has had more murders in the same time period. Really is it that important that you have to single a big city over another big city in order to make a certain part of the population feel better? Tell that to the mom who's child was murdered in Chicago. Chicago and Detroit both have high too many murders period, be it 600 murders or 1 murder. No matter what side you are on socialism makes people dependent on the government. Capitalism isn't perfect especially when it comes to the rich (Greed is a deadly sin, but so is envy), but for the most part people can make something of themselves. Just my .02 cents.

this era where traditional red states voting R is ending quickly.
although the article is not about politics, political perspective:
virginia turns blue.
georgia turning blue.
texas turns blue next 5 years.
florida continually edging to blue.
by 2024, irregardless of Electoral College, Democrats will be winning a majority of votes, and, the electoral college as well.
