The last time a Democrat won the presidential election in Texas it was 1976.


Which means it's been over 40 years since a Democrat has won the Lone Star state, but former Texas Congressman Beto O' Rourke thinks Joe Biden can win.


O' Rourke, once a Biden critic, ran unsuccessfully for the Democratic Presidential Nomination and dropped out of the race in November of 2019. He also lost in a very close election back in 2018 to Ted Cruz for to represent Texas in The United States Senate.


According to the Texas Chronicle, he told The Texas Democratic Party on a conference call that Texas is "Biden's to lose".

Biden currently has 66% of the Texas Latino vote, according to a University Of Houston- Univision News poll, and experts say that's enough to win the state.

Could history be made?

I did a google search and typed "Presidential Polls in Texas" the first one that popped up and the other ones I looked at say their margin of error is within 3% has either Trump winning or Biden winning by that same margin.
