The US can barely support the number of states we already have. If anything we will lose states, not gain them.

New England could very reasonably be one state, maybe with part of CT going with NY

Check out the history books... there's some interesting things that happen when states attempt to gain independence.

I seriously doubt there will be more than 50 states in the next half century. The demands for statehood by both Puerto Rico and DC will only get louder, though. My guess is that with North Dakota's decreasing population, North Dakota and South Dakota will just combine to form a single state, and that Puerto Rico or DC will become a state at the same time.

I don't ever see D.C. becoming a state. It's our National capital and it's just a city. It does have the population but when they chose the area and size they intended for it to be it's own entity.
