Texas election forecaster predicts Texas House will flip in 2020

Posting this here since we're in a general election year and TX is consequential.


Mike Hailey, a longtime Texas politics reporter, is forecasting a blowout year for Democrats in the Texas House. Hailey predicts Democrats will capture an additional 15 seats in 2020, according to his Crystal Ball forecast on Capitol Inside. In 2018, Hailey predicted Democrats would nab 11 Texas House seats from Republicans — just one seat shy of the actual result on Election Day.
This year, Democrats are only nine seats away from taking control of the chamber for the first time since 2002.

“Republicans in Texas legislative and congressional districts where Trump received less than 60 percent of the vote in 2016 could be doomed as a consequence of guilt by association exclusively on a ticket with a self-destructing president at the top,” Hailey wrote.

Only 9 seats away y'all. Crossing my fingers & toes!!
