  • There Was a Red Wave in Texas

    03/08/2018 6:46:37 AM PST · by simpson96 · 24 replies ^ | 3/7/2018 | Rush Limbaugh
    RUSH: So going into the primary yesterday, we were told that this was going to be where we would all learn that the end for Trump is just months away. It was going to be the perfect storm built by the perfect recipes. Here we have a classic red state. And this red state has the kind of people in it that the left has never been able to beat. And they don’t like ’em. These are Texans. And they hunt, and they fish, they have guns, they drive big cars, they talk big, they live big, and they are,...

    Democrats across the country were getting a collective thrill up their leg about the coming “blue wave” that was about to break over Texas. Some early-voting numbers had Dems all excited. And then the election happened. And it’s true that a political party set a Texas record yesterday for the number of voters going to the polls in a primary. Just one teensy little problem for Texas Dems: it was the Republican party. Democrats turned out in solid-but-not-record-breaking numbers. Overall, Republicans swamped Dem turnout by about half-a-million votes. Republican votes cast beat Dem votes by a ratio of 60/40. On...

    A project of the Committee To Restore America's Greatness CONTACT 1-855-245-4634 TO REPORT IRREGULARITIES OR VOTER FRAUD. The Trump Ballot Security Project was formed when the main stream media reported dozens of voting irregularities in the Texas Republican primary. This ultimately totaled over 600 reports in at least six counties including Dallas County and Travis County. In virtually every case votes cast for Donald J. Trump were tallied for Senator Marco Rubio. We established a Toll Free number to collect further reports of voter irregularities. Almost immediately there were over 300 complaints from Oklahoma. Only a week later the Kansas...

    WFAA/Survey USA ^ | 2/24/2016 | Jason Whitely
    DALLAS - Six days before Super Tuesday, Ted Cruz and Donald Trump are now tied in Texas, according to a new public opinion poll commissioned by WFAA-TV. Cruz and Trump both had 32 percent support from likely and actual GOP primary voters, with a 3.9 percent margin of error. It is the most recent survey of Texas voters and the first one to show Cruz no longer leading in his home state. “He’s fading,” said Cal Jillson, professor of political science at Southern Methodist University, of Ted Cruz’s candidacy. “Trump has proven to be stronger and more resilient than anyone...

    Politicus, Real Liberal Politics ^ | February 18, 2014 | Keith Brekhus
    Though the media consistently mocks Congressman Steve Stockman’s bizarre behavior and his ridiculously inept campaign for US Senator, a new Human Events-Gravis Marketing poll suggests that Stockman may pose a legitimate threat to John Cornyn in the Republican primary. The poll conducted February 10 to February 12th, shows Cornyn leading 43-28 percent. While this may appear to be a comfortable margin, it puts Cornyn well below the 50 percent threshold he would require to avoid a two person runoff in May. In addition, Cornyn has reason to worry because a poll taken two months ago, conducted by a different polling...

Texas Comptroller Susan Combs has already endorsed James White. James White is one of the few minority (black) elected officials in the Texas Legislature. That is not why he is getting so much support though. James White is...

    Rick Santorum, trying to keep his presidential hopes alive despite increasingly long odds, is looking for the political equivalent of a Hail Mary pass from Texas Republicans. Santorum has noted in recent days that some Texas party activists are waging an uphill battle to change the rules of the May 29 primary so that whoever wins would get all 152 delegates up for grabs in the contest. The activists, led by Santorum supporters, say they have enough support to force an emergency meeting of the State Republican Executive Committee, though major hurdles loom beyond that. The Republican National Committee would...

  • Federal court orders May 29 primary date for Texas

    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The federal court in San Antonio has ordered Texas to hold its primary elections on May 29, resolving for now one of the biggest issues in the state's redistricting battles. The three-judge panel issued the election schedule two days after releasing political maps for Texas to use in the 2012 election. Legal disputes over the maps for congressional and House districts have kept Texas from holding elections. In the primary schedule released Thursday, the filing period for candidates reopens Friday and closes March 9. While the court order clarifies the election schedule, some minority groups...

    SAN ANTONIO (Reuters) - A panel of three federal judges late on Friday approved a plan to delay the Texas primary elections from March 6 to April 3, a move that could be a blow to Republican Governor Rick Perry's presidential hopes. A likely victory in Texas on March 6 would have given Perry a surge of momentum on Super Tuesday, when 10 other states are holding primaries or caucuses. Now, Texas's primary will be toward the end of the calendar. Related U.S. Republican Presidential candidate and Texas Governor Rick Perry steps off his bus on his way to a...

  • McCain Has Yet to Exceed 50% in Texas Polls

    Recent polls show that John McCain is in for a struggle in the Republican primary contest in Texas. Despite a recent endorsement from former candidate Mitt Romney and a declaration by much of the American press that McCain is the Republican Nominee, McCain has been forced to stay on the campaign trail and fight for the final delegates needed to win the nomination. If we have learned anything from this election cycle it is that the polls are not to be trusted. So a 4 point lead in Texas is negligible at this point for McCain. McCain could be further...
