There has been much chagrin among native Texans that the influx of Californians would change Texas politics, since Texas is a “red” state and California is a “blue” state. Not so, says a recent generalized study by the Dallas Morning News. In an exhaustive research of social media postings of Californians moving to Texas it appears that a majority of these new residents lean conservative – and conservative Texas politics and low taxes are two of the factors with so many moving to the Lone Star State. So the recent new billboards in West Texas stating, “Don’t Californiaize Texas,” may be misinformed. Californians are now moving to Texas in record numbers, and the trend is expected to only increase. Now, maybe the increased traffic could be a bigger issue.
