But I think that's kind of the point. Texas is even more solidly Republican than Arizona - so while that big hispanic democraphic number makes it look like easy pickings, it went even more for Romney than Arizona. The same factors that would give you pause about Arizona turning into a solidly blue state seem to be present in Texas as well.True, except that they have more Hispanics (by percentage). And their urban areas appear to be more liberal than those in Arizona (we really only have three urban areas, and only two of any size - Phoenix and Tucson). Texas has Austin, DFW, Houston, El Paso, San Antonio, and Amarillo (no, I don't know the demographics of them individually, but I do know that urban areas tend to be less conservative...except in AZ lately).Arizona may be ripe for the picking once we become "minority majority". Apparently non-Hispanic whites are only 45% in Texas, so they're already "minority majority". How many Hispanics voted? Did they really vote for the guy(s) that wanted them to all "go home"? I doubt it. I suspect most didn't vote. So it seems to me that what is projected to happen in AZ has already happened in TX, and the Dems just need to get all those Hispanics (and Blacks and Asians) registered and get them to the polls, and they win. Probably same in AZ, actually.But demographically TX is already there, and that's at least half the battle (I would think).1poorguy
