3. I'll believe it w/r/t Texas when I see it-- we hear about Texas trending blue every election cycle

 

and then the Republicans win in a massive landslide for all statewide races. It would be one thing if Team Blue were getting within 4-7 points, but instead they can't even get to within single-digits for Governor, Senator or President.

Ted Cruz, Mr. Personality himself, won by 16% in a Presidential election.

Texas is the most powerful counterpoint to the argument that demographics are destiny. Our demographics just don't vote there.

Georgia and Arizona are much, much closer.

Texas will hopefully get there at some point, but by the time Texas goes blue the USA will be a one party state.
