“WASHINGTON (AP) — Monday’s announcement that yet another Republican congressman is retiring highlights the GOP’s growing struggle to win the House majority next year and the shifting political leanings of Texas, the nation’s second-largest state.
Democrats’ burgeoning prospects in Texas, which has a deep-red pedigree, are widely attributed to two factors. One is the state’s growing populations of Hispanics and of moderate voters in communities ringing cities like Dallas, Houston and Austin, the other is the polarizing rhetoric of President Donald Trump.
“Trump has really turned out to be an accelerant for energizing young voters and voters of color,” said Democratic pollster Zac McCrary, whose clients include MJ Hegar, a Democratic contender for challenging GOP Sen. John Cornyn next year. “And again at the same time, Trump has so deeply alienated suburban white voters in numbers that are mind-boggling.”
