The 2020 election will be fought across a handful of key swing states.
Just one or two states flipping could decide the presidential contest.
And Donald Trump got some really bad news from this key swing state.
Texas and its 38 Electoral College votes are key to any Republican’s presidential electoral success.
Without them, there is no path for the GOP to the Presidency.
Texas has voted Republican in every election since 1976, but the state has since seen left-wing voters from California flood the state in recent years.
And they’ve brought their anti-gun, pro-big government socialism to Texas.
The Hill reports:
The Texas miracle that three successive Republican governors have touted has attracted millions of new residents in search of jobs, and those newcomers, many of them from California, are shifting the state’s politics. One percent of the state of California, with a much more liberal population, has moved to Texas.
Four of the 10 American counties that have added the most new residents since 2010 are in Texas; four of the 10 counties adding residents at the fastest pace are there, too.
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in 2016 won 569,000 more votes than Barack Obama did in Texas in 2012; 568,000 of those votes came from the 20 largest counties in the state, Progress Texas found.
Trump won Texas’s electoral votes by a slimmer margin in 2016 than any Republican presidential nominee since Bob Dole in 1996, when Texan and Reform Party nominee Ross Perot was on the ballot.
Democrats believe victory in Texas is within their grasp after Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke narrowly lost his 2018 Senate race to Ted Cruz.
Polling has shown Donald Trump neck and neck with his Democrat rivals.
If the influx of liberal voters puts Texas in play for 2020, that’s bad news for President Trump.
