FYI, if you're going to do favorability ratings for our cities, you should never leave out The Valley (which is actually a similar sized region as Austin).


Also, if you're going to do a similar feature for New Mexico, including El Paso in their list of cities would be extremely relevant given its close proximity and similar culture and demographics. (I.E. include El Paso, Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Las Cruces)


Also! Where the hell is Fort Worth!?

A little bit west of Dallas


Yes, but its a huge city. We in Texas do not, despite their close proximity and close economic ties (same metropolitan area, but different metropolitan divisions), consider them the same in a similar way that North Carolinians see urban agglomerations like ehe Triangle or the Triad. Dallas and Forth Worth are completely different culturally. Dallas is very much southern plains akin to places like OKC while Fort Worth is the quintessential southwestern cowboy town. I.E. It's like El Paso but lacking the historical Hispanic character.

Where the West begins...but never reaches full flower.

PPP is best known for putting out highly accurate polling on key political races across the country, but we also do affordable private research for candidates and organizations.  Why pay tens of thousands of dollars for a survey when one of the most reliable companies in the nation can do it for less?"
