Response to Major Nikon (Reply #5)

9. I only compared Texas and Ohio in regards to

their voting patterns in Presidential races. I wasn't saying they're similar in other ways. Today the parties spend a lot in Ohio during Presidential elections because Ohio can go either way. I think we'll see the same thing happen with Texas.

Maybe Texas will eventually be reliably blue, but if they are I think it's going to be a long time before that happens. For Texas to be reliably blue, Hispanics will have to be reliably Democratic, and I don't know if we can count on that. If they vote as a bloc like some other minorities do, then it could very well happen, but I don't think Hispanics can be counted on to do that in the future.
