Did you think you’d live to see the day when a national polling organization would declare that Texas is no longer a red state? Check out this article from Gallup about the map you see above.
The implications of this shift in party affiliation, according the article, include the following:
“Democrats regained momentum at the state level in 2017, with 10 states showing enough of a shift in residents’ party affiliation to change from a Republican state to a competitive one, or from competitive to Democratic. The 2017 shift was manifested in major Democratic victories in statewide elections in Virginia and Alabama, as well as close losses in congressional districts in Kansas, Montana and Georgia that had traditionally backed Republican candidates.”
But to make electoral victories happen in Texas, we must Get Out The Vote! Remember that Texas has the lowest voter turnout in the nation. We must change that in 2018. Check out our Get Out The Vote resources. We have guides for each county that include contact information for a point person who is a member of TX21 Indivisible. This is your contact to get started.
