Despite Ojeda losing to Republican candidate Carol Miller by 12 points, his campaign was able to achieve a remarkable 31-point shift toward the Democratic Party in a district that Trump won by 49 points in 2016—the biggest swing of Trump voters toward Democrats in any district in the country.


31 point shift is no small deal

It just surprises me he was mentioned , but it's not my poll I guess.

I read a lot of the stuff about Ojeda, he's seen as something of a golden boy by some. I am not seeing it.

The problem isn't that Republicans are just waiting for a biker and ex-marine to represent them, they want Republicans to have power. And yeah, the general trend helped his chances.

Too early for Beto, plus he's needed to defeat Cornyn in the Senate now in Texas if he can.

I think the whole presidency needs to be changed, it should not have so much power and he/ she can be removed from office with a vote of no confidence so we never have this situation again. Harris is very intelligent, out of those who haven't run before. But I dont think a woman should run this time, this country is very misogynistic.
