Do You Think Texas Will Become a Swing State? If So, When? [POLL]
Mitt Romney will win Texas and will win the state by a healthy margin. Even Democrats know that’s true but Texas Democrats are looking into the future and believe that soon, Texas will go from red to purple.
Yesterday, Gilberto Hinojosa the chair of the Texas Democratic Party teamed up with actress Eva Longoria to write a piece for Politico in which they predicted that by 2016 Texas will be a swing state. They point to the rising Hispanic population as a reason why.
Texas Monthly weighed in as well and while they believed 2016 was a bit early for Texas to go purple, they pointed to other Democratic experts who think in 2018 or 2020 would be the earliest Texas would lose the red state label.
What do you think? Will Texas become a swing state sometime soon? Let us know your thoughts in today’s KFYO Poll of the Day.
