As in almost all elections, what happens on November 8th - will depend on how many voters feel strongly enough to invest the necessary time and energy to cast a ballot.
The challenge for both candidates and political parties - mobilizing more Texans sympathetic to their platform - then the opposition can energize in support of theirs.
To win in Harris County and statewide - democrats need a healthy African-American turnout while also capturing more than 60 percent of the Hispanic vote.
That's a "tall order"....made even "taller" by the recent revelation - that only one out of ten Americans believe our democracy is working well.
Is that a recipe for voter apathy?I
