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.
