Earlier I blogged about the possibilities of one of the Democratic candidates winning Texas in the Presidential general election in November. I suggested that it's a little too early to know if such an event is a possibility, but that we know with more certainty that Democrats on down ballot races will do well in an energized Democratic turnout. Survey USA though isn't afraid to speculate, and in this survey of voters in each state, Obama comes out ahead of McCain in the electoral vote losing Texas only narrowly, 47 to 46 percent (Hillary loses 49 - 42 percent, still a respectable margin but less ripe for an upset; she also still wins the general, but by a smaller margin.)So perhaps it's not too early to start speculating about the possibilities of a Democratic victory in Texas after all.
