We have seen lots of media reports and media-sponsored polls over the past two weeks pushing the narrative that Texas is somehow “in play” for the Biden/Harris Harris/Biden campaign this year. The only problem with these reports is that they are not supported by a shred of actual early voting information.
Take the early voting data compiled by Target Smart as a prime example. TargetSmart shows that Republican turnout is vastly exceeding Democrat turnout in Texas by an even larger margin than Republicans ran up in 2016: 51.3% R, 38.9% D, and 9.9% unaffiliated. That margin is 2% larger than in 2016, when Trump won Texas by a 9% margin.
Other than polls paid for by media outlets for the sole purpose of creating a story, what indicator do we have that some huge chunk of Republican voters are rebelling against President Trump in Texas? The answer to that would be NONE. Not a shred of real hard data exists to support that claim.
One of the media/Democrats’ favorite piece of Texas-related propaganda is the narrative that there is some big anti-Trump revolt in the state among suburban women. First of all, I live in Texas, am a voracious consumer of news, and have yet to see any newspaper or local TV station identify and interview a single such suburban housewife. If these women are all over the place, why isn’t anyone pushing this narrative in the media finding them and talking to them?
Second, TargetSmart also breaks its data down by County. Frequent contributor Larry Schweikart tweeted out some of that suburban data this morning:
Comal 2016 (Trump +49); 2020 80/14 (Trump +66)
Ft. Bend 2020 (Trump -3); 2020 45/42 (Trump flip!)
Collin 2020 (Trump +14); 2020 63/23 (Trump +40)
Travis-2020 (Trump -39); 2020 21/70 (Trump -49)
2) Hard to see in this data any huge Revolt of the Karens.

Then there is the new data coming in across the country showing that the percentage of non-college educated white voters is far higher this year than it was in 2016. This is the segment of voters who turned out in droves in PA, MI and WI four years ago and served as Trump’s winning margin. Their massive turnout was not replicated in other states that year. This year, it appears that this voter segment’s outrage over having been ridiculed, slandered and portrayed as “privileged” racists for the last four years is motivating them to turn out all over the nation.
Folks, that voter segment is a huge part of the voter base in Texas.
At the end of the day, we are left with the unarguable fact that the only indicator that Texas might be closer this year than it was in 2016 – when it was not close at all – is a raft of polls that were paid for by media outlets for the purpose of creating “news” stories.
Trump will win Texas, and he will win this election on Tuesday.
Just for good measure, the Trump Train literally ran the Biden campaign out of Texas earlier today:
ICYMI: The Biden bus tour canceled the rest of its Texas tour because more Trump supporters showed up than Biden supporters- not harassment. They canceled Abilene, Amarillo, Lubbock, Port Arthur, Houston, Laredo they had 14 stops!!! They got shut out EVERYWHERE!!
