Yikes. That's admittedly a very scary thought. A Democrat winning Texas.

Greg Diamond

"Scary?" I believe that the term that you use for this in Texas is something like "YEEE-HAW!"


If a trend like this exists in Texas, I guess it will be a long, long, long time for the GOP to win the White House. It's obvious you can't even see how the Republicans could win Ohio or Florida with Texas being a battleground state. The truth is, Republicans (or at least the TP) can't even see that America's changing. The scandalous gerrymandering in the House of Representatives postponed the disaster, plain and simple. The unique effect will be (and in fact is, as it seems): blinding the GOP establishment, since they still believe having a significant popular support. Which is actually fading. They're driving full speed into a brick wall.

You guys in Texas are nuts.


Texas is just like CA before the election of Bill Clinton. There are far to many people moving from CA, OH, NY and other BLUE states because corporations are relocating here and bringing their workers.

If Hillary is the nominee in 2016 then we will start to see Texas transition to BLUE. It will take another 8 years of PURPLE battles but by 2028 it will be dark BLUE.

PPP POLLS BY YEAR: 2006-2017

We came to PPP after a public poll in the San Jose Mayoral race showed our opponent ahead by 8 points. They found our candidate (Sam Liccardo) ahead by 3 points and that allowed us to be able to push back with the press against the perception that our opponent was now a strong favorite in the race. Sam ended up winning by 2 points and is now the next Mayor of San Jose. PPP worked very fast and had a very accurate read on the electorate when we needed them

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?"
