The GOP swept Texas last year without putting ANY effort out there. I mean literally almost NO effort at all. To TRULY make Texas purple would require massive demo shifts PLUS a massive amount of money PLUS the Texas GOP would have to sit by and let it happen without doing anything... do you honestly think that is going to happen? I live here, I know for a fact it won't anytime soon, certainly not by 2020.
2020, probably not.
The gerrymandering in Texas is atrocious. If the next round of redistricting is not so ****ed off, there will be significant gains for dems. If Latino voters increase their participation rates then the gop has problems too.
I think you severely underestimate the chances of it playing out that way.
