    this week's results in Starr, Webb, Zavala, Hidalgo, and Jim Hogg Counties, to test your theory of "...a lot of Hispanic Republicans" in Texas. I picked those counties because they are over 90% Tex-Mex demographically (the SOS does not report results by race), and include both rural and urban counties. Romney averaged in the low to mid 20%.

    That's not a lot of Texas Hispanic Republicans. Indeed, it rivals the percentage of San Francisco, NYC and Denver Republicans.

    What's still a lot are the white-right Texas voters who voted against Obama in the opposite extreme. But the demographics will take care of this -- inexorably, as well shown in the diary.
