Posted on 03/07/2018 5:20:03 AM PST by governsleastgovernsbest
Democrats across the country were getting a collective thrill up their leg about the coming blue wave that was about to break over Texas. Some early-voting numbers had Dems all excited.
And then the election happened. And its true that a political party set a Texas record yesterday for the number of voters going to the polls in a primary. Just one teensy little problem for Texas Dems: it was the Republican party. Democrats turned out in solid-but-not-record-breaking numbers. Overall, Republicans swamped Dem turnout by about half-a-million votes. Republican votes cast beat Dem votes by a ratio of 60/40.
On todays Morning Joe, after election maven Steve Kornacki broke the bad news, Joe Scarborough had to concede:
Looks like a lot of those reports about a big blue wave coming in Texas: once again, overhyped.

Turns out, the “wave” was Republican voters going to the Texas polls in record numbers.
Ping to Liberal Media Criticism list.
The Dems may flip a House seat or two but they are not going to take the Cruz seat or the governorship or any other statewide office.
Overhyped you say?
How very odd, and so unlike the Democrats/Media.
Sorry, Joe you lost!
Has Mika spanked you yet? ;-)
So what is going on with Drudge? It doesn’t appear that he has gone liberal, but he obviously doesn’t like trump. Big stories of trump winning have been nowhere to be found on his page.
More damn lies from the Globalist linked US media trying to influence the election.
Ohhh Mule-headed Mueller......
And now back to RUSSIA RUSSIA RUSSIA
Hey Joe? Hows that intern? Still dead?
The MSM will keep on overhyping and overhyping until somewhere, sometime, something clicks to fit their narrative.
These days, you have to very selective where you get your news.
The democrat strategy of using propaganda to influence the minds and behavior of the target audience (Read: Texas Voters) was correct as they see it. Problem is it didn't work on the Texans and will not work any where in the run up to 2018.
we’ll soon hear them screaming “The Russians did it again!!”
The Ty-D-Bol flush.
You mean the #fakenews MSM lied. Again!
Good propaganda is true enough times that you can't guess whether the next statement will be a the truth or a lie, and the odds are against it.
The MSM just lies. Lies. Lies. Lies. And, lies, and etc. etc. etc.
The Russians obviously colluded to thwart the Blue Wave.
Mueller needs to look into it like right now!
So happy! Scarborough is a moron.
You have about 24,000,000 citizens of Texas, so maybe 12,000,000 are voters, maybe a bit more or a bit less. People didn’t turn out period. If one wants to call getting 10% of eligible voters a victory, good.
Americans will never let the Democrats steal their country...
