Is Texas really going to become a blue state? If Texas turns blue doesn't that mean game over for any prospects for a Republican president (and killing conservatism in America, at least in the national sense), not to mention a lopsided House? Won't this mean one party rule for a generation?

Or will Texas (and other states in the South like Georgia and North Carolina) turn into another Florida or Ohio, ergo "battleground" Texas or purple?

yeah its really tough to see the GOP winning without texas. I think it will remain swing for a while but they need to do something else. On the other hand a trend D in Texas is great for the GOP because it gives them even a better advantage in the senate relative to the nation.

Does this mean a Democrat President for an entire generation or dare I say single-party rule for 50 to 100? If Texas swings blue, is this the death kneel for the GOP and American Conservatism as we know it?

It could mean 4 straight D terms but the GOP should adjust after the next recession.. Also the senate is still winnable for the GOP thx to the small state advantage.

So two presidents then, well that does seem rather long but maybe not the end of the world for the GOP (and conservatives who could use the time to rebuild the party). Also, to be fair, Texas isn't the only problem for the Republicans. Do you think they will be able to adapt in the long-term?

Does this mean "game over" for the GOP if Texas is lost?

For a couple of cycles, yes.

You mean for like a couple of decades or 12 to 16 years at most? Is conservatism lost then?
