      When California glows BRIGHT RED on an election map, then MAYBE time to talk about Texas being flipped to blue.

    Hard to say, but the trend towards blue was accelerated by the election of 2016, and the off-year election of 2018. It may be too soon to say Texas will go totally blue in this election cycle, but the movement will likely continue. You need only look at demographics below the surface and what is happening in the larger urban areas of the state and their voting patterns. 

    Almost all of the larger cities are blue and their larger older suburbs are trending that way. The smaller towns and rural areas are still pretty red, so the state is deeply divided. Travel to those areas (urban versus less urban) and you would think you are in two different states. 

    One thing that has helped the Republicans stay in power is that the voters in the smaller areas are reliable voters--that is what saved Ted Cruz. Voters in the urban areas have been less so, but their numbers are increasing as people from other areas of the country move here and as those younger voters get old enough to vote (assuming they bother to register). FYI: Texas has a large under 30 population, and many are under 18. Demography may not be destiny, but it is likely a hard shove!

    There was some speculation years ago that Texas might be minority-majority by 2020.  I don't know if that's happened or not.  Nowadays they say it might take a little longer, but the point is that it's INEVITABLE.

    The point is that it's GOING to happen inevitably.  Maybe not this year though.

    When/If Texas goes blue, there might never be another Republican president ever!  That's 36 electoral votes they will lose and 36 they'll have to make up, and that's considered pretty much impossible.  Yet, for some demented reason, the Republicans are working harder and harder to become The Party of Only White People.

      Texas has a large number of younger people, especially Latinos who are not yet old enough to vote. Add to that many of the younger college-educated millennials are not fond of the hard-right politics of the state's Republicans and that leadership has to be squirming.

    Lois. It is NOT going to happen this year.

    There is a bigger chance of California going red than Texas going blue in 2020.

      A lot of Republicans were MAD at Cruz for certain things that were said during the 2016 campaign. They're over it now.
