Flipping blue, the Lone Star State has been a long-time obsession of the Democrat Party. In 2020, Democrats were convinced their moment to make Texas a blue state finally arrived. Yet, despite the left pulling out all the stops, Trump still managed to take Texas, just as he did in 2016.
Once more, the Democrat Party is back at it. House Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez campaigned for various House Democrat candidates in San Antonio earlier this month. The far-left congresswoman likewise claimed it’s just a matter of time passing before Texas flips blue.
With Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott up for re-election this year, Democrats have decided to put Beto O’Rourke up to oppose him. In 2018, O’Rourke previously ran to become a Senator representing Texas. Although, current Texas Sen. Ted Cruz thankfully defeated him.
When it comes to O’Rourke, his pattern of losing elections doesn’t look likely to change anytime soon. It is especially the case for new Texas gubernatorial data, as the Next News Network covers.
Since O’Rourke declared his run for the Texas governorship this past November, a series of polls put him up against Governor Abbott.
The Texas Democrat is behind the Republican Governor in every poll. O’Rourke has tried to remedy this by claiming he favors the Second Amendment. However, everyone in (and out) of Texas knows better.
When O’Rourke was running to become President in 2020, he vowed the government would take away firearms from law-abiding Americans. Likewise, the Texas Democrat has repeatedly attacked Governor Abbott for signing legislation that legalizes constitutional carry in the Lone Star State.
The only person O’Rourke is fooling with his lies is himself. Last week, a Climate Nexus poll showed Abbott leading O’Rourke by five points. Then, another recent survey showed that Independents voters living in the Lone Star State overwhelmingly favor Abbott over O’Rourke.
It doesn’t take a genius to see that O’Rourke’s chances of beating Abbott in the general Governor’s race are nonexistent.
Amid dismal support ratings in the Lone Star State, the overall disaffection with Democrat leaders is another disadvantage against O’Rourke’s plan to become the Governor of Texas.
In the years O’Rourke’s been in Texas politics, he’s made his support for gun control, high taxes, vaccine mandates, bloated government, etc., very clear. These are things most people want less, not more, of.
Governor Abbott of Texas shouldn’t have any severe problems winning re-election this year.
