Since Texas is rarely polled, and I've never seen toplines in the few congressional polls I have seen, I looked at the districts, who lives there, who is turning out to vote, and how the districts are trending to come up with these numbers. Please treat my predictions as a poll with a MoE of +/-3. I also included what the 2008 and 2004 results would have been in these districts had they existed in those elections.
Elections have consequences -- from the race for President to the race for one seat on a city council. The political economist Max Weber wrote that the state possesses a monopoly on the legitimate use of force. But in the United States, the state is divided into myriad federal, state, and local entities. And the elections to fill those entities are the products of the fascinating interactions between campaigns, party affiliations, voter turnout, and the media spotlight. Red Racing Horses analyzes those elections -- from a Republican-leaning perspective -- to keep a close eye on the process of electing officials, and to offer our perspective on the election-related issues of the day. Thank you for visiting, and we hope you'll enjoy the blog.
