Census: Population Shifts May Mean Opportunity for GOP, Conservatives

The 2010 Census results are in.  And for the Democratic Party, they may be losing their grasp on New Castle County.

The results show more are moving below the canal, which is more friendly to conservative values, than that above the canal.  The results also mean that an additional two Senators (one each for Kent and Sussex) and four legislators (two each for Kent and Sussex) may be in the works.  They will be at the expense of New Castle County.  The upcoming redistricting (done every ten years) should take this into consideration.

What we can expect is few legislators representing New Castle County, and more representing Kent and Sussex.  The elections of 2012 can have dramatic impacts on the future of the State of Delaware.
