Many exciting developments have led to more counties and states turning more red, while people flee blue states and counties! California, New York, and Illinois are among the top 6 states with the highest electoral votes. These are all extremely blue states, but there are countless reports that people are desperately fleeing these states for the most red states, Florida, Texas, and Tennessee. As this dynamic develops, many people may be wondering how this demographic change will affect the electoral college voting system.
Census net migration data shows that millions of Americans are fleeing areas that voted for Biden. From mid-2020-mid-2022, millions of Americans left counties and cities that voted blue, as populations soared on a micro level in counties and, on a macro level, states that voted red across the nation. The electoral college votes were altered after the 2020 census results. Many red states gained a vote with Florida and Texas gaining 2 and 3 respectively. However, studies are showing that even more people have fled blue states since 2020 when the census took place.

The 2024 Electoral College counts have been updated in light of the census data, and many key blue states have lost votes as the nation continues to become more red.

These states will inevitably continue to lose electoral votes. After the 2020 census, California, Illinois, and New York already lost a vote each as other red states gained votes. Since then, even more residents have fled these states. As more people move into red counties and states as blue counties lose residents, the power structure will inevitably shift. As more people continue to move out of blue areas and into red areas, the electoral map will inevitably continue changing to reflect this.
As places become increasingly red and the population shifts away from leftist ideologies, we will likely see states’ votes and policies reflect the changing demographics and beliefs of residents. There are 25 Republican supermajorities, which is a huge win for conservatives nationwide. As red states become more red and blue areas lose residents, policies that reflect these changes will take place. The electoral college system is proportional to a state’s population, so as populations shift away from leftist blue states, we will likely see a rise in electoral votes in the red states that people are moving to as they flee the imploding blue states.
