If population, not policies causes the liberal mess in places like California, why is Texas so much more conservative?

You have wrong...The liberal/leftist policies will eventually follow as the population centers became more populated. In the 1950 and 60s, CA with a much smaller population was very conservative. As it became more populated, it became more liberal.

Fact is, Dallas, Houston and Austin are increasingly becoming more controlled by the leftist, liberals and worse. I know this because I've been told this by Texans and people right here on this site, that this is exactly what is occurring in these major population centers.

We’ve been the second most populated state for a long, long, time and are no where near the second most liberal. Yet you keep asserting that a population increase from these new businesses will tip the scales.

I again suggest there are other factors you are not considering.

I don’t recall California ever being conservative like Texas, in fact, almost a half century ago Californians considered Austin the only oasis of sanity within Texas.

California has been republican, but it was always a loosey/goosey, rino, social liberal republicanism.

You are a perfect example of the attitude of many Californians towards Texas conservatism, they despised and mocked Texas, even in the 1960s.
