Additionally, there has been a record number of registered voters. I consider all of this good news for whatever slim chances we have of going blue this year.

In the last gubernatorial election the Democratic runner was tromped by the Republican, by almost 20%.

But, if you counted ONLY votes by those 45 and younger, the Democratic runner was the winner....clear winner.

Texas won't secede before going blue, just the old people will die off.

Not necessarily. A lot of youth start going to the conservative side as they age, get families, actually pay taxes.

And the young people coming up will get older, get jobs, find out how the word actually works.

Pay taxes.

And most of them will look at the bilge the Left offers, say, "Fuck that" and keep Texas RED.

Count it.

Texas was estimated to turn blue by 2040. However, I've seen comments that this election may have moved it down to 4-8 years.

Dallas has gone from solidly Republican to solidly Democratic. A recent poll showed Harris County (Houston), which is 69 percent minority, with a majority identifying as Democrats. The San Antonio metropolitan area is about three-quarters minority. Travis County (Austin, seat of the state government, the flagship state university, and a burgeoning tech economy attracting young people) voted 60.1 percent for Barack Obama in 2012.

Yea, Trump may have destroyed the GOP. Not by causing strife, but by pushing growing minorities more fully into the blue camp than they already were.
