That's not shocking.  Low voter turnout has always favored conservative parties, and believe me the GOP will do everything they can to keep those numbers down.

Philip Francis Queeg: WTF Indeed: 60+% of Texans are pro-life, so unless the Democrats plan to run a pro-life candidate than I think they'll be SOL.

And all 60% are single issue voters?


The bigger question is will the state GOP be able to complete their grand gerrymandering scheme by then so as to make any issue completely moot?

happydude45: She ran as a typical Dem and badmouthed her opponent, making her look childish and unsubstantial in the process. Bush refused to play those games and slander her, and the people responded accordingly.


Man, we really remember those days differently.

UNC_Samurai: You don't even need to go that far out of the big cities - look at how many megachurches there are in cities like Arlington.


Oh jeezus christ, San Antonio.  The sheer volume of the churches and their epic size blew my mind, now there are even more of them.  I attended a "family" funeral in one a few years ago, this was a funeral mind you.  The political speeches given and the racist vernacular tossed out followed by "praise jeesus!" from the crowd along with the general behavior of the spectators, fark man.  You people here on fark in other states or locked in liberal Texas cities.  You have no...farking....clue.  You have no idea what you are in for.

People thinking she has a real shot at winning the Governor seat in Texas have not been to Texas, real Texas.  Leave Austin occasionally, leave the big cities, drive out and visit the rest of Texas.  The foods good, but you can kiss your hopes and dreams for Texas goodbye.  In order for her to win you will need to kill half the voters  outside of the three big cities.  Its just not going to happen,  And she knows this.

What is the male/female political split like in Texas?  That's a bit harder to gerrymander.

Not yet. We don't have the critical mass necessary to overwhelm the rural voters, and the suburban voters still trend older. But soon.
