How a Booming Texas Economy May Help Democrats in 2020


Bloomberg
Gregory Korte and Joe Carroll

For Republicans, the Texas Miracle may become a victim of its own success.

The booming economy that helped the Lone Star State weather the 2008 recession has also sparked a migration there that’s changing the face of Texas politics. The workers who’ve moved to Texas for jobs in the energy and tech sectors are more liberal than Texas natives, slowly turning the deep-red state into a richer purple.

Democrats now find themselves close enough to winning Texas that they’ve scheduled the third round of 2020 primary debates for Houston on Thursday.

Texas is a big political prize, and getting bigger. Second only to California in size and electoral votes, it’s the eighth-fastest growing state in the country, helped by a higher-than-average birthrate, immigration, and domestic migration.

And while a growing Hispanic population may someday fundamentally transform Texas politics, for now the leftward turn is driven mostly by the predominately white people moving to Texas from other states.

1. Democrats are trying to ruin another state, just like they did to WA and OR.

US Senior Senator - Republican
US Junior Senator - Republican
US Representatives - Republican (64%)
TX Governor - Republican
TX Lieutenant Governor - Republican
TX State Senate - Republican (61%)
TX State Representatives - Republican (55%)

The last time Texas voted for a (D) Presidential candidate was 1976...43 years ago!

8. Its weird that you would rejoice your maggot friends

Fleeing their self created shithole state for one that enjoys freedom, gun rights, self sustainability and overall well being. The Dems are like a parasite that destroy success wherever they go. Don’t you find it ironic they would flee such a “prosperous” state for one that so many little hittlers reside in as you judge?
