Obama has absolutely no chance in Texas. After the massive 2010 defeats & subsequent redistricting, we will be lucky to save what few incumbent Democrats we have left.

After the 2010 debacle (brought about in part to Obama's brow beating of the base after providing us with Bush's 3rd term) Democrats lost all the ground gained in recent elections in the state house & state senate. Hey, just how many state-wide office holders in Texas are Democrats?

If Obama were not up against the most unpopular, most ill suited Republican likely-nominee since Herbert Hoover in 1928, Obama would lose in a landslide.
