^You can't source that because they didn't take exit polls in Texas. You people are foaming at the mouth about Texas turning purple or blue or green or whatever. The last two elections where candidate problems for the GOP. FYI educated doesn't mean smart.

If you can't back up a claim without a source, polls, ect. why even make that claim and present it as fact?

Presenting something as fact without the ability to back it up is neither educated, nor smart

Even though I quoted you, it was more directed towards MetroMatt. I just wanted to include your post "You can't source that because they didn't take exit polls in Texas."

Its simple math really...

Since 2000, roughly 70% of Collin County has voted Republican.

Asians make up 11.5% of Collin County's demographic.

93,406 x .70 = 65,384 Asian Republicans in CC

That is really, really, ridiculously bad math and terrible logic. You can't say that just because a county went 70% Republican that each subgroup voted 70% as well. That's not how things work.

Are you being serious?

No, I actually want to know if you believe this or if your just trying to stir the pot.
