    you have a lot more fringe elements there than other states.  Follow the white vote - any state that votes <35% Obama (in my opinion) is overpopulated with fringe.  Democrats have been wiped out in the white vote in Texas for a long time (not like the 15-20% Ds get in Mississippi, but still).  

    For some reason, Texas collects weird cults:  Koresh and Jeffs just to name two.  Too many wide open spaces?

    The arrogant white people there need to be pushed back into a hole (someone above said something similar).   I'll believe when I see....

      John McCain/ Sarah Palin REP 4,479,328 55.45%
