    There are those who have given up on Texas, but the portents of progress are unmistakable.

    The state with the highest percentage of uninsured in the nation is overdue for an upgrade, and diversity will guarantee it.

    The population of Texas has been growing rapidly, and that growth is, overwhelmingly, in urban areas, not in the aging, bucolic boondocks of trumpery. Urban voters are, strikingly, more progressive.

    Around 40% of Texans are Hispanic, but do not yet vote in numbers approaching that of California that has about the same percentage. That will change.

    In the upcoming Senatorial election, Robert “Beto” O’Rourke’s challenge to Rafael “Carnival” Cruz has Republicans justifiably concerned.

    (Carnival's father was implicated in the assassination of President Kennedy by Trump.)

    TRUMP ON CRUZ:
    CRUZ ON TRUMP:

    College graduates and middle-class migrants make up a major portion of the new migration.

    Texans can see the handwriting on the wall - even though there’s no wall.

    Don't expect Texas to change much in November, but change it will.

    A couple of things before you get too excited.....

    Even though both Candidate Trump and Ted Cruz said all those things during the campaign, as soon as Donald Trump was selected as the GOP candidate, Cruz came to him on bended knee like a loyal lickspittle to kiss the ring and he has supported both Candidate Trump and President Trump - He (Cruz) is all hat and no cattle.

    Even if the urban, educated, population increases, gerrymandering and/or voter suppression will make sure that the impact of this population is minimised (or possibly even negated) in elections which rely on districts.

    IMO we're decades away from a blue state of Texas - if it happens at all. Again, IMO Hispanic voters should be a rich vein of support for the GOP by rights. I'm working in sweeping generalisations but they tend to be religious, socially conservative and have a significant proportion of small business owners. That sounds like the kind of people the GOP and their policies should be targeting.

    I love how he just assumes all hispanics vote democrat. What's the logic there, they're brown so they like the D?

    Give me a ****ing break. I'm not even certain you're a US citizen, but I know you're not from Texas.

    The vast majority of Mexicans either know someone, or have family members who are in danger of exportation. I don't think right wing hatred for immigrants is a big selling point for them.

    On the other hand, left wing hatred for the rule of law is bound to continue to turn people off.

    Desperately trying to label that fact "hatred for immigrants" just adds to their death spiral.

    1) Not MEXICANS, HISPANICS.
    2) Every single one I know which came here legally or whose family came here legally and they were born here, HATES illegals with a fervor just this side of joining the KKK on this issue. And that's not hyperbole.
    3) the "vast majority" do not know someone or have family in danger of "exportation" by which I assume you mean "deportation" since they are not products. That would be a racist assumption on your part.

    Hatred for the rule of law is a phrase RWNJs use quite often. Fortunately, the facts just don't bear that out.

    Obviously, you don't know very many Mexicans.

    Again: HISPANICS, and I'm married to one and going to have beautiful mixed race babies with her. She is one of 7, her mother was one of 9.
    I went to Thurgood Marshall School of Law, quite literally ruled the "most diverse law school in the nation", the Hispanic population is high there. I live in Houston a city with quite a large Hispanic population.

    I think I know plenty.

    Texas does lead the nation ... in common sense.

    Beto is a joke. He supports the players in pissing on the American flag. The players don't have any right to kneel and embarrass their employer, the NFL. If their employer tells them to stand, they stand. Or they lose their job. In working as a salesman at a Ford dealer, I can't wear a t-shirt that says "Chevy makes better cars". No one has the right to embarrass their employer.

    I spent a large part of my working life in and around Houston. If you think the Hispanics there are all in favor of the anti-south of the border attitude of the right you are sadly mistaken. Many have been apolitical, but that is quickly changing

    Notice how often Natty Bumpo celebrates the replacement of Americans with Mexicans. There’s a reason he does that.

    Maybe because Trump has discharged his bigotry against them. I'm sure not all Hispanics will vote democrat. But most of those who have self-esteem and a conscience will.

    On the other hand, I'd have to say the same for everybody else. Trump separating children from their parents has exacerbated everybody from every group who still appreciates moral values.

    Texas is suffering from a syeady invasion of economic refugees from the blue states and they are bringing their goofy liberal ideas with them

    If illegal aliens ever get amnesty that will hurt republicans too

    But my guess cruz will win this election

    Deploy bureaucrats to snatch their children and incarcerate them in parts unknown, and they'll soon kowtow to rabid federalism.

    I doubt there are enough Global socialist International Democrats in Texas to turn Texas blue. My experience is that most Texans are loyal Americans and will reject the collective.

    Sooner than some are willing to admit, demographic destiny dictates that

    I thought I saw threads like this before.

    The Blue Wave is coming. Tell your friends.

    By the way I wouldn't take California for granted. Democrats here are running on the popular idea of free healthcare for everyone and anyone in the world who comes and goes from here at will, unchecked and unregulated. American citizens are uniting against this globalist ploy to bankrupt our country.

    if minorities get out and vote they can have a huge impact, we saw that in the roy moore election, dems were able to stop republicans from a sure thing in their minds

    I hope minorities wake up to the race-baiting from collectivist. Americans of all types are against Democrats paying for healthcare with our money for everyone in the world who makes it here unchecked and unregulated.

    The Democrats are asking people who are already dependent on the crumbs they distribute to them to now share those crumbs with the rest of the world that comes and goes unchecked and unregulated.
