Democrats Get Spanked Big Time In Texas.

Post by 1989TransAm » Wed Mar 07, 2018 2:18 pm

What happened to that big blue wave in Texas? The media is pretty silent on the Texas primary elections yesterday. Here are the election results so you can judge for yourself.

You should look at the raw numbers. Yes the dimoKKKRATS increased their numbers but so did the Republicans. No blue wave as the media predicted.

“Through early voting, Democratic turnout has been surprisingly high, while Republican turnout has been average,” said Matt Mackowiak, a Republican consultant based in Texas. “The reasons are complex, but could prove an enthusiasm advantage for Democrats, which would benefit them in November, if it holds.”
Is this the wave you are talking about?

Say, would that be the same polling outfits who said that "The Bitch" was going to win by 10 points back in the 2016 Presidential election, that TRUMP won handily? Image

Exactly. Of course who would have thought a Dem would win a senate seat in Alabama? Ted Cruz is nervous right now.

This is the first I've heard of Texas in play for Dems.

All I had heard so far was that a strong Dem turnout in Texas is an indicator of Dem enthusiasm nationwide.

I hope all the demo's win, so all could enjoy agenda 21 to the max. No one cares about it now. But when the demo c rats get their way with us, watch out. Don't say you have not been warned. So what are all you demo c rats willing to give up for your love of that party?

"No Blue Texas Wave: Ted Cruz Received More Votes than Entire Democrat Turnout"

"U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) received more votes in the 2018 Republican Primary election than the entire turnout of voters in the Democratic Primary. The results shed a new perspective on the media-hyped “blue wave” stories from the weeks leading up to election day. In the Republican Primary of 2018, Senator Cruz received 1,317,450 votes in a race with four challengers. His Democrat opponent, U.S. Representative Beto O’Rourke only received 641,311 votes against two opponents.
Figures from the Secretary of State’s office show that just over one million voters turned out in the Democratic Primary in general across Texas. Cruz alone exceeded the entire Democratic voter turnout by nearly 300,000 votes.
Last week, Texas Secretary of State Spokesman Sam Tayler told Breitbart Texas that in normal gubernatorial primary elections, about 10 percent of registered voters turn out in the Republican primary and five percent in the Democratic primary. At that time, he predicted, based on early voting numbers, that Democrats would match the Republican’s 10 percent turnout. Instead, Democrats fell short on election day. Republican voters slightly exceeded their normal voter turnout with about 11 percent of registered voters coming to their polls. Democrats also raised their turnout, but only to 6.8 percent arrived."
