In previous years, Texas has been a state that is almost automatically red. This year, however, things are a little different.

According to an article on Real Clear Politics, Trump/Pence only has a small lead over Clinton/Kaine in the state of Texas. Looking at the map, it is one of only three states that is leaning red.

If the election goes according to the predictions made by polls, Trump will win Texas by approximately 7.8, leaving Trump only a small grasp on the state.

Whatever happens in Texas this election season will overall be out of the normal political ideology of the state.
