As a Texan, I believe there is a possibility that TX will turn blue in the next few years.

Half the state of California seems to be moving here...........

Once they get a firmer hold in DFW area, as in other population dense areas, it won’t be long before the votes in the area crush the honest law abiding citizens in the less populace areas of the state. Same in NV with Vegas and the unions pretty much dictating what the rest of the state has to put with. Stay strong my friends.

Not to mention the inevitable Amnesty.

It couldn’t possibly be the huge number of hispanics in TX,

Here in CA we’ve seen a massive influx of hispanics. That’s when CA turned blue. Don’t forget we elected Reagan here in CA. It’ll never happen again with the tide of legal and illegal Mexicans.

CA is the least of TX;s problems. Your problem is Mexico.

Keep the faith, bubba. Plenty of good folks are also moving here from the states that helped establish Texas in the first place. Political science is NOT a predictive science. Anything can happen, from minute to minute, that could change the entire dynamic.

You’re presupposing that those leaving California are liberals. Why flee Mecca?

This argument also assumes Anglos will vote blue. It ignores the continuing racial political divide. If you think Anglos will settle in for permanent “minority rule” it’s a mistake. Just look at housing patterns and the way blue voters run for the safety of conservative housing, school and business areas. That’s reality and that’s not going to change.

“As a Texan, I believe there is a possibility that TX will turn blue in the next few years.”

As a fellow Texan, I agree. Progressives are coming to this state from all over to get away from the state they have ruined.

Well, it must be “the half that doesn’t drive,” because the freeways are as crowded as ever. Then again, we have been told here repeatedly by “Conservative Californians” who are moving to Texas that they are leaving the liberals behind.
