When Texas flips, it's not going to be red to purple. It's red to blue.

Why? Once there is enough of a coalition to overturn the red leadership, they will fix voter suppression and related laws - which will be an entire flip of leadership for generations.

Today's ruling by Texas Supreme Court tells the tale. Need a Dem Governor in Texas.

PS I do not think it's happening in 2020. But the Dems are knocking at the door this year, and maybe in 2022 and 2024.

2030 - maybe.



Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.

The court will rule for multiple dropoff sites. Expect the ruling to be published on Nov. 4th.

May take a lot longer since this election will decide who's in charge of the next round of gerrymandering.

Why does anyone think Dumbf and his ilk were so focused on "building that wall"? The Latinx population of Texas and farther west is going to explode in the next few decades, and it will change the way the rest of America operates.

That might be right.

The inevitable decline of the oil industry will also be in full swing then too.

Just one poll, but today Politico reports that a poll by the Dallas Morning News and UT Tyler shows Biden with a 3 point lead in Texas.

The big difference is that Biden now leads by 48 points (!) among Hispanics (previously being only a 30 point lead in September).

Outlier? Omen of a Biden blowout?

Dunno. Polls go up, polls go down.

If that poll forces the GOP to spend ad $$ in Texas, it's all worth it.

I would love for Biden to win Texas (got a brother more liberal than me that lives in Austin), but I doubt he will. They note that the poll was taken from Oct. 13-20. The debate was on the 22nd - where Biden said, “I would transition away from the oil industry, yes." Maybe that won't make a difference, but if the votes in Texas are close, that could ruin his chances there.

Interestingly, Trump is not campaigning in Texas this week.

Texas has broken our heart before (Beto, 2018) but has been inching in the blue direction for a long time. Let's hope this year is the one where Texans show up and make it happen.
