Denton county Texas is about to pass their entire 2016 total.

They're at over 98% of their 2016 total already, with 6 more days of early voting to go. According to Texas people I've been talking to, if Denton goes blue, the state is going blue.

3. No, but it's a large purple county

and high turnout there will likely favor Democrats. It's kind of a bell weather county for all of Texas.

2. Denton is not a suburb of Dallas, Denton is a city and has it's own county


Denton is located north of Tarrant County and Dallas County.

I don't want to give anyone the wrong impression.

4. It is a conservative area, and there is an University there. So there is the youth vote.

That being said, a lot of young people there like Trump. Even the educated. Lifetime of being brainwashed and they see it serves them $ well.

This will be interesting to see the results.

11. Thank you for this information and good to hear. I have a son in University in San Marco, Hays co.,

and I was reading an article that they have blasted some record, nationally with early voting. Kinda the same environment but they are off Austin and Denton is off Dallas/FtWorth. So that is good to know. I feel much more confident it is a blue wave happening there. That is what I am hoping for.

14. Yes, Hays county which has been trending very blue for the last

few years just surpassed their entire 2016 numbers. First county in the US to do so.

16. See? There you go. I was just texting the son in Hays about how exciting this is getting. While we

also discuss the panhandle, El Paso and Houston and other places rough time with covid. Hospitals are full and was told doing tent structures outside. They are very cavalier about covid and people dying.

8. True...

... however, from what I read it is moving from solid red, to light red, toward purple status.


Beto got 45% of the vote which is an eight-point improvement on HRC numbers.

13. Fun fun. I love facts. I ponder why Republicans do not like facts, as a matter of fact, run away

from then. They give us information, lol. That just cracks me up. Their stupid, willful self admitting stupid.

Thank you. I got the feel it was tending progressive with their University vote. Get those kids out. !!! Their voice matters. I know a very strong, awesome smart, feminist woman who should be in her senior year there. All kinds of progressive fun with her voice. I met her years ago when she was in high school, and we bonded. I do have faith in our young vote. Beto does so well with that. He gets a huge pat on the back.

10. Wow!

The numbers from early voting are staggering, everywhere. But Holy crap, Texas!

This is a Wakeup call election. Gotta give a to Beto O'Rourke. He said it could happen and he's worked his butt off to make it so.

Wowsa!

12. Texas has the worst Covid-19 death numbers in the country today.

Could be they don't like that.
