Just look at the last three election results from theblogprof.........
2008 General Election results-DEM: 96.93% GOP: 2.65%
2006 General Election results-DEM: 95.05% GOP: 4.33%
2004 General Election results-DEM: 93.61% GOP: 5.93%
So you can see that Detroit has managed to purge it's city of nearly every republican.
Now ask yourself, is Detroit a more livable city today?
Of course, maybe it is and the only people leaving the city are those damn nasty conservatives.......
Detroit's population fell to 713,777 in 2010, its lowest level in a century, according to U.S. Census figures released today.
The loss of 237,493 residents since 2000 is a sobering statistical stamp on a decade's worth of job losses, plant closings and foreclosures in a city that was home to 1.8 million residents in 1950. Detroit's nearly 25 percent decline in population was the most by far among the top 20 cities. The population of Chicago, by contrast, dropped 6.9 percent. It's the largest 10-year drop in Detroit's history, including the years after the 1967 riots. Already, at least two council members are calling on Mayor Dave Bing to contest the results.
The dirty little secret is that the people who can leave, do. The people who can't stay. As a result, you have a burgeoning underclass with no rich people to pay for them.
How's that working out for you?
