    but White Texans are non-majority now (47%) and every other group is pro-Obama by more than 73%.

    Put it differently, if every Texans was to vote (as is required in some countries, like Australia), Obama would win the state easily, and this would be independent of economy or independent voter sentiment.

    The big question is not whether Obama can shift anyone's opinion in TX, but can he get more of his people out to vote, than what the hugely unpopular Romney will do with his own base...

    •  Don't kid yourself (0+ / 0-)

      McCain got almost a million more votes in Texas than Obama. That's still a big hill to climb. Even with much higher turnout rates of registered voters in 2008 than 2004 or 2000 the Democrats are still well behind in Texas.
