According to Newsweek, the Texas Grand Old Party (GOP) sent out emails to voters urging them to vote for President Donald Trump in the 2020 election. Although Trump beat Hillary Clinton by nine points in the deep-red state during the 2016 elections and a Democrat hasn’t won a Texas election in 25 years, the email insists that if Texans don’t support Trump in 2020, “there is a high chance it will cost him the election.”
The email highlights many Republican fears, such as open borders and “socialist policies and systems,” and ties them to the Democratic party in an attempt to push Texans to support Trump.
Whether the emails are fear-mongering or not, demographics in Texas are making a gradual shift from Republican to Democrat. For example, Barack Obama lost the state by 16 points in 2012, Clinton lost the state by nine points in 2016, and in 2018, Democrats gained 12 seats in the state’s House, two in its Senate, and two in Congress.
