    This makes it seem that Dems ought to be competitive in Texas statewide races by the end of this decade, and solidly favored by the mid-'20s.
    So if we assume Dem performance remains static among each demographic group for the next 12 years, Texas ought to be a genuine swing state by the 2024 election. We might even have a shot in Texas by 2020, depending on how that year plays out.
    these demographic trends have been watched and predicted for several election cycles now.   but it is probably too early for this presidential cycle and maybe too early for the next presidential cycle.  so we probably won't see the results on the presidential level until 2020.

    Mitt Romney is not the solution. He's the PROBLEM
