When TX goes Blue in 2020 for example, seriously, what will the GOP do?

No possible way to 270 without TX.

They'd be in the wilderness for ever. They must have some sneaky plan up their sleeves.

1. They probably do, but I think it'll still happen - it's just a question of when. And I hope they

whine & gnash their teeth even more than they are after this election. (And I'm a TX native ... just not typical :^).

4. I Live In Texas

The earliest Texas goes blue is 2028 realistically. Yes, metro areas are blue or close to blue but the rural vote is still very very large here and they get out and vote. Even 2028 may not happen.

5. The R percent of the vote in TX went up from 56% to 59% from 2008 to 2012.

No evidence it is turning blue.
