Dallas's metro is growing faster than all the others, but can the city of Dallas surpass San Diego, San Antonio, Philly, and Phoenix in population? Why do you think it can or why not? IMO Dallas can surpass San Diego and Philly but questionable on Phoenix and San Antonio

Just when I was starting to like you you come and do this thread. I can see right through your threads and see your real intentions.

No I am not trying to do anything wrong here by asking this, I can assure you of that. Your taking my real intentions out of context, IMO

Even I think Dallas passing San Diego (if it hasn't already) is inevitable and passing Philly is not to distant in the future for Dallas. The real task is passing up what appears to be the faster growing Phoenix and San Antonio. Is it possible for Dallas? Can they annex or do they have room to do it?

Well I apologize for jumping to conclusions, as far as PHX goes I really don't see the city becoming that much bigger due to water scarcity. SA is a toss up because Dallas and SA both offer affordable living and they're both in the same state, Philly is expensive to live but at the same time its proximity to NYC will help it grow more in the future but I still see Dallas giving it a run for its money if the economy does not improve. SD is a no brainer, I think Dallas will very soon or already has passed it, with the shape in which CA is in its a done deal.

I saw a thread that had the newest estimates and it looked like Dallas jumped ahead of San Diego. I just looked at the censuses and it seems like Dallas was ahead of San Antonio but it overtook Dallas and continues to distance itself from Dallas. Philly is growing again but it cant keep up with the sunbelt growth of Dallas and San Antonio, IMO and passing Philly is inevitable. There is limited land area where Philly can develop, IMO.

Surpassing Phoenix depends on Arizona's position on its laws and economy and how important the role of water will become and IMO Phoenix will stop growing as it seems inevitable

I can pin Dallas for San Diego, Philly, and Phoenix but San Antonio is the challenge for Dallas

Yes SA will probably remain the 2nd city of TX but its metro population is underwhelming for the size of the city, that can change though.

Phoenix will run out of water if it keeps growing, its in the desert with limited water supply

Dallas has already passed San Diego. Philadelphia is next and that won't take to long. I do not think Dallas(city) will ever catch San Antonio or Phoenix.
