If he was in any other state than Texas would he still have supporters behind him?
I’m just thinking that too many people are visualizing voter support for a candidate from Texas, only Texas.
Is it because to Americans Texas is the biggest state thus portraying strength?
I think there is another state even bigger.
I’m trying to understand you.
Are you saying people might vote for Rick Perry because he comes from a state with a lot of square miles?
“Im just thinking that too many people are visualizing voter support for a candidate from Texas, only Texas.”
A good point. Unless Perry had come in to Texas with an Obama-like drive to wreck the state, it would have been almost impossible to damage us. We are making out like bandits due to high oil prices and never having a real estate bubble (thanks to our State Constitution that long predates Perry). We also have a heck of a lot of Republicans in positions of power, and even many of the Dems actually CARE about the state (unlike DC). Governor Bush did fine here; Ann Richards, a Democrat, did great here. This is a tough state to mess up these days.
Bottom line, if you vote Perry, you get PERRY - you will NOT get Texas - so you should be looking at the PERSON, not the state.
