    Texas Is Bracing for a Blue Wave in 2020. Yes, Texas.

    Trump said he wouldn't forget about middle america, well middle america will remember what he said about them...


    • Citing Beto's election in the state
    • 4 GOP retiring and possibly others
    • John Cornyn's warnings and low 37% approval rating
    • Growing latinx population
    • Republican Infighting- Republican House Speaker Dennis Bonnen was caught on tape crudely insulting several lawmakers, while rattling off a “hit list” of insufficiently conservative Republicans he wanted to be taken out in primaries next year.
    • And President Trump's lackluster response to the mass shooting in TX and also calling El Paso the most dangerous city in tx reinvigorated Beto's campaign


    Texas Is Bracing for a Blue Wave in 2020. Yes, Texas.
    The next few days are going to be a category Level 5 hurricane of trolls, bots, conspiracy theories, fake stories, hoaxes, and hit jobs. MAGA-land is in panic mode, and it will be ugly. Be careful, be skeptical, share good stuff, report bad stuff, and don't argue with idiots.

    A Blue wave sweeping over Texas would be most welcome.

    Using any logic it would seem likely that democrats would win a lot of seats across the country. There's 33 Senate seats and all 435 House seats that are up for grabs in 2020. Right now, things don't look good for men like Cornyn and McConnell, their poll numbers are very low. But there's always a chance that Trump will do something at the 11th hour that will boost their poll numbers. Truthfully, people are so emotionally fragile when it comes to politics that their alliances can be swayed very easily. If, for example, Trump announced a new nuclear deal with Iran or some kind of cooperation with Kim Jong-un that N. Korea will submit to inspections of their nuclear testing sites, it will instantly swing a lot of votes in the red column and pull men like Cornyn and McConnell right along with them.

    I'll never count on a blue wave in 2020 until I see the electoral vote numbers start coming in on the night of November 3, 2020.

    I've seen how Republicans have transformed over the past 20 years and it's puzzling where they can go from here. They usually try to go extreme right, but I'm not sure where else they can go at this point. They already support fraud, money launderers, pedophiles and racists etc...

    No surprise about Texas.

    By 2100, the United States of America will be a completely blue nation.

    Our great-grandchildren will be living in a paradise created by today's liberals.

    You hit the nail on the head. This movement towards nationalism - conservatism started a few decades ago with Ronald Reagan who created the conservative movement of “limited government, individual freedom and adherence to the Constitution.” Reagan solidified conservative Republican strength with tax cuts, increased defense spending, deregulation, a greatly strengthened military and appeals to family values and conservative Judeo-Christian morality. In recent years, social issues such as abortion, gun control and gay marriage have become important. The former Tea Party movement energized conservatives at the local level against the more liberal policies made by the presidency of Barack Obama. The nationalism-conservatism movement was a backlash against Barack Obama and liberalism resulting in the election of Trump who apes Ronald Reagan's ideologies. I suspect that sometime in the not too distant future, the pendulum will once again swing back to something more moderate and centrist.

    Just when you think they have hit the bottom of the barrel, some right winger will begin to dig out a new basement.

    Fortunately Trump is unlikely to provide that sort of boost. He's following his playbook from 2018, because it worked so well last time.

    That may not be true. Liberals tend to have a low birthrate, while the more conservative the people, the higher the birth rate. The US may become a more diverse nation, and therefore, a more liberal nation, but it will be far from a paradise and, in the end, it will be the conservative factions, with their higher birthrates, that will dominate the country in 200 years time.
