For many years, Democrats and their lapdog media keep telling us about how the Democrats are about to turn Texas blue, and every election, they tout a candidate they claim will win a statewide office, but it never happens. In fact, they always end up being Republican landslides.
The Democrats even dumped tons of Hispanics in the state to turn things in their favor, but guess what? It came back to bite them in the butt.
The Democrats took the Hispanic vote for granted, but unlike the Black vote and the women vote, Hispanics know when they are being deceived. And the Hispanic vote has taken a sharp right turn. President Trump turned them and apparently, they are staying turned.
The only downside for Republicans is that Democrats will not be throwing a lot of cash into a lost cause. That is money they can spend on printing completed ballots they can use in other states.
The Texas Monthly notes:
Last year, McAllen experienced the biggest shift in party vote share, toward Donald Trump, of any large city in the country save for Laredo, 150 miles to the northwest. In both border towns, Trump improved on his 2016 results by more than 23 points. … no area fled further into the GOP camp than South Texas, where 18 percent of the state’s Hispanic population lives.
The Texas Monthly continues:
“In Starr County, just upriver from McAllen, Republicans increased their turnout by almost 300 percent between 2016 and 2020. While Hillary Clinton won there by sixty points, Joe Biden barely scraped out a five-point victory. In Webb County, home of Laredo, Trump cut his 2016 margin of defeat by more than half. And in Zapata County, which didn’t even have a local Republican party, Trump became the first GOP presidential candidate to win since Warren G. Harding was on the ballot a century ago.”

“On the 2010 census, 53 percent of Americans who answered that they were Hispanic or Latino also marked their race as white,” The Monthly pointed out. “Last year, in Starr County, where 96 percent of respondents were Hispanic, almost 99 percent identified as white. … Such results were common across South Texas, where 76 percent of Hispanic residents identify as white, substantially more than the 62 percent who do statewide. In Laredo, 95 percent of respondents marked Hispanic or Latino—making it the second-most Hispanic city in the country—and 96 percent identified as white. “
Manuel Pescador Jr., 54, an occupational safety consultant who lives in McAllen, told The Associated Press that he left the Democratic Party because they offered “handouts and false promises,” adding that illegal immigration also played a role. He said of illegal immigrants, “They come here, they refuse to assimilate and they’re here to use everything they can, in any way they can. And so that’s why I call them ‘depleters.’ That’s why that Hispanics that can vote, vote Republican because we know who’s coming in.”
