OK

I know it's early, and I already knew Hillary polls strongly, but wowza.

The results are within the margin of error, but Clinton leads Marco Rubio 46% to 45%,
Chris Christie 45% to 43% and Rick Perry 50% to 42%. She has a +7 favorability rating
(50/43) with Texas voters and strong support among moderate voters—72% view her
favorably, and she crushes her potential GOP opponents among this voting group.
“If Clinton is the 2016 nominee, she could conceivably expand the electoral map for
Democrats in deep-red Texas,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling

Needless to say, the Democratic nominee doesn't need to win Texas.

But just forcing the GOP candidate to actually spend money and resources there would effectively preclude a realistic GOP win.
