Yeah, but Obamacare's Medicaid/Medicare expansion could add years to their lives.

Thanks a lot, Obama!

So South Texans voted for a pro-life Democrat rather than Wendy Davis? And this is supposed to be Bad News...for Wendy?

Townhall is CONCERNED.

Then I guess Republicans don't have anything to worry about and can stop obsessing over her.

Alien Robot: Triple Oak: I get what you're going for, but disagreeing with a black guy =/= racism. Ever.

Then you don't read many Fark political threads, because it seems if you disagree with Obama it's only due to racism. There's no other explanation. For He is perfection incarnate.

That's it. Shut it down. She's doomed. It's right there in the article. She lost more than two dozen counties, and in a state with two hundred and fifty four counties, there's no way she can win a state-wide election this way. I mean, it's not like voters in the Rio Grande Valley are going to be more likely to support the Democratic candidate over the Republican. Not in that rather blue area of the state. I mean, voters there supported a pro-life primary candidate and there's no chance that the largely Hispanic population cares about any issue besides abortion.

Almost Everybody Poops: AeAe: She's going to get destroyed. And I support Wendy.

Texas elected Perry, Cruz, Cornyn, Stockman, Gohmert .. That's a who's who of right wing extremism and idiocy.

Texas will not elect Davis.

I'm hopeful that some crazy derp comes out of Abbott between now and November akin to Todd Akin, but alas, you are probably right.

Heck, Akin's remarks would probably give him a boost in Texas.


Farking Texas.  Texas is that kid that shiats in the pool and everyone has to get out.

I don't mind - it makes it easier to fill the ignore list with the people you know are never going to contribute a useful opinion.

Soup4Bonnie: Those demographics are rapidly changing. Age differences between Hispanic and white Texans help explain the growth of Texas' Hispanic population. More than half of Hispanic Texans are under age 30, while 35 percent of white Texans are under age 30, the report said.
Start talking about immigration and watch the demo really slide left.


THIS.  Latinos will vote for the Latino over the unknown candidate. And oh yeah, we care about more than abortion. But keep making that mistake, derpers. The Aaron Pena cited in the article in a self-hating coconut who sold out to the Rep party after his district was gerrymandered. He's a laughing stalk in political circles.

P.S. Kinky Friedman and his pro-weed platform could be an interesting addition to the ticket, especially in terms of turnout.

Soup4Bonnie: Captain Dan: Let me get this straight.  Your party's plan to excite and mobilize millions of Latino voters is to nominate a lady who's famous only for supporting abortion?

She's also famously not Republican, which helps a great deal in getting Hispanic people to vote for her.  The other party has a real problem with minority and youth and female turnout.


Because GWB winning nearly half of Latino's mean a win for dems. The GOP does well with Latino's in Texas (they even elect them like Cruz), the former head of the Texas Sheriff's Association was a Latino Republican (who retired a few years back after 18 years as Sheriff in his county)

Oh and if you complain about any education policies in Texas like Creationism and other stuff you're now a racist because this guy is the Education Commissioner in Texas

And in the last Houston mayoral elections, the GOP endorsed a gay woman in the runoff election. And the head of the largest Tea Party group in the state is half black and half arab. The GOP speaker in the state is Jewish, and there are other things about the Texas GOP that I find interesting and weird

Texas GOP: The most confusing GOP in the country, don't try to understand it

Doesn't Texas have closed primaries?  So won't most of the people who voted against Davis yesterday also vote for her in November?

geek_mars: This makes sense as things stand right now, but there's plenty of time between now and November for Abbott (or the Nuge) to piss them off enough to come and vote against him.


If I were Greg Abbott's campaign manager, I'd allow him one unscripted interview, and I'd kidnap Ted Nugent.

Man, these Clown Hall farkers are scared shiatless of Davis.


But they more than make up for it with the many entertaining and informative comments. For instance, I was not aware of this: "Davis is a one-item platform person. She is running for late-term abortion ... period. No other issues." Shocking, just shocking!

So, some Hispanics voted for the Hispanic guy instead of the white lady? I'm shocked. Surely this means Wendy Davis is a doomed joke of a candidate.

Yeah, but if those were truly Democrats voting in the Democratic primary, will they vote for Republican Greg Abbott over Wendy this fall?
