Yes

The Hispanic population is growing way too fast in the border states not to eventually surpass that whole East Coast corridor & while California is slowing losing population Texas is getting the bulk of it.

The NE corridor has far more than 45.8 million people, especially if you consider the full size of these states.

I only included the CSA population of the core cities, if you add the states they reside it is an area a little smaller area wise than CA (less than half the land area of TX) and a population of about 65 million.

BTW the 45 million are in a land area aproximately the size of a combined LA and San Diego CSA

Put me in the maybe category.

On paper it seems pretty clear cut. Both Texas and California have booming population growth and tons of immigrants (immigrants on average have 3 times as many children as do non-immigrants). On the other hand, we're hurtling fast towards a population crash with the Baby Boomer generation. Country-wide they make up close to a third of all Americans (80 million) and, well, they're getting old. Even though the average life span keeps increasing, at least 2/3 of them will be dead and gone by 2050. With that alone, it's hard to say what will happen in the next 40 years.

I sincerely hope California doesn't exceed the population of the NE corridor but it probably will. Texas can handle that number of people better than California and it also will likely exceed the North East. The percentage of growth suggests that the NE's census will slowly decrease.
