    I know that there is already a very interesting thread on the possibility of Ted Cruz losing to O'Rourke this November; personally, I actually think that Cruz will squeak through for a narrow win.

    However, the future of Texan politics will undergo a major shift in the next ten years.....WHY?

    Actually simple demographics. The [legal] influx of Latinos and Hispanics into the state is huge....BUT, what we have not yet experienced is the thousands of children of these immigrants who will soon turn in to voting age.
    This, coupled with the dwindling and aging white population of the state, will result into a true blue wave in a state that has been the strongest, conservative base since the days of LBJ.

    Bear in mind that losing Texas' electoral college votes,would mean that the chances of a conservative republican being elected to the oval office may turn to be a thing of the long-lost past.

    Donald Trump makes Ted Cruz look better and better every day.

    I actually liked Ted Cruz's tax reform plan. It's too bad he had to lie about the true nature of it, and it's too bad he had to lie and claim his INCOME TAX plan meant the abolishment of the IRS.

    The clueless rubes actually cheered when he said he would abolish the IRS. It never occurred to them to wonder how that was possible with Ted's INCOME TAX.

    That kind of credulity and lack of critical thinking is exactly what Trump exploited to the max.

    Texas did have a Democratic governor before Dubya. And then there's Kinky Friedman's popularity...

    Your lips are turning blue, from lack of oxygen to your brain. :icon_rolleyes: By the end of the next decade liberals will have fled to Canada, Texas and most of the country will be red.

    I lived in DFW for 15 years (1987-2002) and as far as I'm concerned Texas can go to Hell :21: which is what a Republican is; a Democrat too.

    It doesn't matter what their color or background is, Texans love their freedom too much to vote for big government controlling Dems.

    I think the current Texas Gov. (Abbott) is a Repub; he got whacked by one of those evil trees from 'The Wizard of Oz.'
