Who said anything about the president? I was talking about the governor. I for one think that is a very important election for everyone living in a state because that has a more direct effect on them.

Haha, you tell me what the population of Texas is without illegals, you guys act like every other person living in Texas is illegal.

At most a couple million, though I don't believe any of them are suppose to be counted in the census, but regardless you are still looking at 10-12 million legal Texans at least that choose not to bother voting for their own governor.

And of course Davis didn't have a chance, barely anyone votes in Texas, so that makes it easy for Republicans to win there.
Oklahoma also just recently banned cities from banning fracking: Oklahoma Lawmakers Pass Measure Preventing Local Fracking Bans : NPR

Simple.
Fracking usually involves horizontal drilling so a drill site may be on adjacent property you don't own. The first you might know this was done under your feet is when your well water started smelling or tasting funny, has dissolved organics or arsenic salts or contains enough volatile hydrocarbons to be flammable. Guess what , the oil companies will tell you to take a hike and suck on sand.
