According to Wiki, the Fifth District has seen a decrease in the white population from 60% to 46% since the latest redistricting. Imo, Hoyer's in the same position as former Rep. Joe Crowley who lost his seat to AOC. It's just a matter a time before someone (most likely, an African-American) decides it's time for a change.
He's had a primary challenger or challengers the last couple times, most were Black. He beat them 65-35 too. Actually I think the one last year was 70-30. The closest was 2020, 64-26, last year was 70-20 for the closest one.

You point out the decline in white population as a sign Hoyer is in trouble, yet he won his post-redistricting primary and general just as easily as ever. Hoyer has his seat until he's done with it. That's as obvious as politics gets.

We can agree to disagree. He'll retain his seat unless someone like an AOC comes around to challenge him. He's had that seat for 40 years and has little to show, considering he was the #2 House Democrat.

He had an AOC run against him in the primary the last two times. She was the one who came closest, got 1/4 of the vote the first time, 20% the second.

Steny can stay as long as he wants. The migration from PG to Charles has been going on long before Malfunction Junction. Waldorf has a lot of problems, I wouldn't live there now, it's dangerous. St. Mary's County, you're next.

And many indicators suggest that Charles became majority-Black during the pandemic, if not earlier.”

“The number of Black households earning $200,000 or more a year in Charles County quadrupled between 2009 and 2020, according to a Washington Post analysis of ACS data. It was by far the fastest-growing group of Black earners in the county over that time. As with Prince George’s, county incomes in Charles rose as the Black population expanded.”

“Where is the new epicenter of the area’s substantial Black middle class? In a word: Waldorf. The forested commuter haven has grown faster than anywhere else in Maryland over the past 30 years. In 1990, about 15,000 people lived there, 82 percent of them White. By 2020, more than 81,000 people lived there, 64 percent of them Black.”
"according to a Washington Post"


You lost me right there!

You should ALWAYS check out your source BEFORE using them.

This isn’t an opinion piece. Demographics are demographics. If you don’t trust census numbers, then I can’t help you.

I don’t know why these demographics facts triggers you so much. Census data is not even a political statement, but your reaction to it screams bigotry to everyone on this board.

Sounds like your opinion just not any fact to it.

So, now I am a bigot because I don't trust the wash post.

What does that make YOU?

Remember " those that cast the insult are usually the one's GUILTY of that insult", someone said!

Do you trust every thing the gov't tells you?

Remember, "I am from the gov't and here to help you!"

P.S. I grew up with the with, post and worked with 2 "highly respected" fed agencies and I don't trust a damn thing they say because of 1st hand personal experience.

And you?

So you confirm that you don’t trust census data. As I’ve said, we can’t help you. And what agenda would WP have in reporting on these numbers? Do tell.
