    A Daily Kos article just informed me that Texas could be turning blue, democratic, in the years to come, for real. Consider this exert from the article.

    Enrollment data from the Texas Education Agency show that this school year Hispanic students reached 50.2 percent of Texas' 4.9 million public school children, compared with nearly 49 percent last year.

    Anglo students stopped being a majority several years ago and continue to decline in number.

    Hispanic students in prekindergarten through high school now total 2,480,000 in Texas. The group is 90 percent of the student population in the El Paso region.


    It's just a matter of time...

    This was discussed three weeks ago in the "What will happen in 2016" thread. Glad to see that the media has caught up with our personal observations.
