I could call Texas for him as well.
You would be surprised. Lots of illegals and refugees have been allowed to come here by Obama and due to the booming economy in the past years lots of Californians and NYC types have moved here when companies relocated- they often bring their tax&spend and leftist politics with them. And various universities are pretty leftist in voting (if they wake up to vote.) But this tempered, somewhat, by some Hispanics not wanting our country to turn into Mexico or Honduras (there was a reason they left) and who are traditional (like having a family, go to church, etc,) Hispanic people whose ancestors have been here before Texas came into the union and fought on the good side and don't want to become part of Mexico again, and the native non-Austin voters.
