Abstract

A view of the 2020 election map provides a vivid picture of the intense level of polarization existing within the United States today. The primary color red represents Republicans and blue signifies Democrats. The extreme division between parties is reflective in the position of each hue on a color wheel, both sitting opposite from one another. Can red become blue? History demonstrates that California was red until the 1992 Presidential election. The purpose of this research is to explore the possibility of Texas switching from red to blue. In this paper, voter information from ’92 will be analyzed against current day Texas voter demographics to determine the role diversity plays in shifting a state politically. Is it possible to turn Texas blue in 2032?
