View Full Version : Nancy Pelosi: Texas ground zero for Democrats, will make a difference in the country

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said this week that Texas will be “ground zero” for Democrats in 2020 and predicted that when Texas turns blue soon, it will change the country and the world.
“Texas is ground zero for us in the next election,” Pelosi reportedly said at the Travis County Democratic Party’s Johnson Bentsen Richards Dinner. “When you helped win in 2018, you were doing something very patriotic for America and when we win a great Democratic victory — and it’s essential that we win the victory in 2020 — we will know that that victory was our destiny.”

Pelosi told activists to know the power that they have to change the country—and the world—by turning Texas blue and giving Democrats the Lone Star State’s 38 Electoral College votes.

“Know your power, this state is so important,” Pelosi reportedly said. “When it turns — and it will soon — it will make a difference not only in Texas and the lives of individual people here, it will make a difference in the country and it will make a difference in the world.”

President Donald Trump carried Texas by nine percentage points over Hillary Clinton in 2016, and Democrats became more optimistic about turning Texas into a battleground state in 2020 after former Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke narrowly lost his 2018 Senate race to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).

After O’Rourke’s came within 2.6 percentage points of defeating Cruz, Texas Democratic Party Chairman Gilberto Hinojosa told the Texas Tribune that “turning Texas blue is not an event, it’s a process.”

“And I think 2020 will put us, if not blue, purple — deep purple,” he reportedly added.

As the Tribune noted, “Texas hasn’t voted for a Democrat for president since Jimmy Carter in 1976. The last time both parties made a serious play for the state’s electoral votes was in 1996, when President Bill Clinton campaigned here for his re-election ahead of Election Day. Bob Dole won the state by 4.9 percentage points.”

Top super PACs on the left, though, are reportedly planning to spend massive amounts in Texas if the Democrat is within striking distance of Trump in 2020.

Texas could soon have two Democrats running for president to challenge Trump. Julian Castro, the former San Antonio mayor, is already in the race and O’Rourke, who has ruled out running for Senate in 2020 against Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), is reportedly set to announce his 2020 decision this month.

Its wishful thinking to think that the democrats will take Texas. Texans dont think like Pelosi and the far left democrat party does. I suspect it will go further red in 2020 because the democrat candidates are all a bunch of far left stooges.

2.6% is crazy close for a statewide election in TX. They might go full commie before we know it. All the rejects from CA that can't afford to live there due to taxes that they voted for are infiltrating TX and voting the same way.

As CA infiltrates TX, I say we send Texans to CA and steal that state. It's a much more beautiful state.

2020 is ground zero for Democrats. Losing to Trump AGAIN will disintegrate the party, losing once already crippled their moderates and led to their far-left socialist turn.

Losing a 2nd time will destroy any notion that the 1st was a fluke, or that Americans have any interest in the direction of the Dem party.

Losing the popular vote, oh lawdddddddddd ave MERCY. That will require nationwide suicide counselling for libs.

Texas will be red but only by a few points.

Cruz only won by 3 points and Trump barely got 52% there.

It comes down to numbers in the end. Over a million people admitted every year into the country, at that rate TX will be blue in the years to come.

After that happens Republicans would have to adjust their strategy and appeal more to the changing demographics in the country, so that 'conservatism' will be a thing of the past.

She is not wrong.

Demographics are destiny and unless we do a 180 degree turn in our immigration policy (something that will NEVER happen) this will be the result.

The Democrats have been playing the long game, with the assistance of bought and paid for RINOs who are for open borders to facilitate cheap labor to their biggest donors, this is a mathematical certainty.

I'm not really satisfied with the way he handled border security tbh. 2 years ago when Republicans had complete control (for the first time in a LONG time) they should have passed immigration reform that included the wall. Instead Mitch McConell said the wall was not a priority for them at the time. Trump put up a lot of resistance to the democrats with the shutdown, he did not show the same kind of fight to his own party. Which is what he should have done.

And by the way i do think he will win in 2020, and he will get the popular vote as well

What ruined California were illegal aliens. Democrats made them a staple of their party there. And despite what they say, these people are voting. They are given drivers licenses, they are voting in local elections. You cant tell me they arent voting in national elections. We have no way of combating this type of fraud. Especially since many of them have photo ideas with their drivers licenses.

Also, 40% of californias electorate is registered democrat. That means 60% of the state is registered as independent/other, and republican. But, you gotta account for the illegals voting. And no one really knows how bad it truly is. I wouldnt be surprised if a lot of the californians fleeing the state are transplant republicans/independents.

This would be the best case scenario for those living in Nevada, Arizona, Texas, etc. But, I'm afraid it's just more of the same idiots who voted for the policies that led them to flee their state and continue to vote for the same D.

And completely agree with your post, the elites with the assistance of the Democratic party and RINOs have sold out the future of generations to come. I am certain that if current trends continue the USA will become a pseudo Mexico 2.0. The hilarious thing is that Mexicans DO NOT like immigrants in their country.

And no one really knows how bad it truly is. I wouldnt be surprised if a lot of the californians fleeing the state are transplant republicans/independents.I think both Republicans and Democrats are leaving for the same reason. If you're not rich, you will not like it in CA. Hispanics in the lower class bracket stay within their community for the most part, and for them it's a major improvement compared to the slums in Mexico. I think that illegals do vote, and not just in CA. I don't believe that they vote in such numbers that could swing the vote though. Decades ago CA was a solid red state, people forget. Reagan's amnesty added to the problem (those are legal now), plus you have a bunch of irrational, white, indoctrinated kids who enter the voting age, and believe that a vote for conservatives is a vote for Nazism. It's a combination and the ever changing demographics are not helping the state.

I think both illegal AND legal immigration is a serious issue. I agree with merit based system, and i also think that legal immigration should be cut in half or less. This is too much too soon. But apparently Trump now changed his stance and wants them to come in at larger numbers than ever.

Exactly. Her attitude here is frightening and telling. We're still over a year away from the election, everybody and their brother is running for president. Painting the narrative that the only choice voters have is any democrat or Trump.

Staying in power is her only goal. Voters choice be damned. Who needs foreign countries interfering in our election when it's going on right here, center stage.

You're only 100-200K legal immigrants aways from turning it blue. Maybe Trump will get his wish and bring in the largest amounts of legal immigrants ever, to speed it up for you. 90% of asians voted for the D governor. I think the R governor won by like 50K votes?

What ruined California were illegal aliens. Democrats made them a staple of their party there


The immigration amnesty bill from 1980s was supposed to address 1.5 million illegals. It ended-up being for 4 million illegals. That's one way people can know the ridiculous "11 million" number currently used to number illegals is a fairy tale. The number was from 2003-4 and based on census data. Illegals avoid answering census. Bear Stearns did a study of the underground economy in 2004 and they put number of illegals at 20 million (15 years ago).

A recent study from Yale said that number of illegals is really at 17-29 million. That means there are 40 million easy. That's why Dems are trying to subvert nation with foreigners. A reason they are openy supporting illegals voting is because they want illegals to know that if they vote the Dems have their backs..

Dems are a mafia doing a bum's rush on a nation they don't actually care about. They make Confederates look noble.
