    I prefer those kind of numbers which bring fear into Democratic voters. That will make sure that they send their mail-in ballots early and show up at the polling stations.

    Several more factors that are driving TX more to the left.

    Before the Pandemic Texas already had the highest rate and largest number of people without health insurance in the country. During the Pandemic, the number has gotten worse. As of May, 2020, 29 percent of Texas adults under 65 don't currently have health insurance. Up from 20% pre-pandemic. More than 20 percent of all uninsured children in the U.S.A. live in Texas.

    Texas Medical Association did a study in 2019 which basically states that the number of Texans without health insurance will jump from 5 million in 2018 to 6 million in 2040. The pandemic accelerated that time schedule. 2040 is now.

    The unsubsidized, uncompensated care physicians and hospitals provide cost in Texas went up from $3.5 billion in 2016 to $12.4 billion YTD. No wonder hospitals are going bankrupt.

    I love these fever dreams where you guys think Texas will turn blue soon. Maybe you should not put too much stock in to what people say on twitter or the democratic party's media conglomerate.

    I do like that Bernie's co chair Nina Turner said of voting for Biden" It’s like saying to somebody, ‘You have a bowl of shit in front of you, and all you’ve got to do is eat half of it instead of the whole thing.’ It’s still shit"

    And no idea why they want Kamala as their VP, she has too much baggage and she's from California.

    Turn blue? Probably not yet. However, a lot of Texans are unhappy with both the governor and the president. Texas currently ranked #1 in the nation in the number of businesses filing for Chapter 11.

    https://www.mmo-champion.com/threads...1#post52532391

    Chapter 11 filing by states from June 2019 through June 2020. Light blue is for businesses and black is for non-businesses. Graph is too large so I did not include the bottom part. For scaling purposes, 1,637 TX businesses filed for Chapter 11 during that period.

    Interestingly enough, we are not seeing an increase in personal filing of Chapters, 11, 7 and 13. The numbers actually went down. Likely because of Federal Aids and all the courts are closed.

    Bankruptcy Statistics During COVID-19 Pandemic

    The vicious cycle already has been seen in corporate bankruptcies. According to a U.S. Chamber of Commerce poll, about 43% of small businesses likely will close permanently within the final six months of 2020. When July began, nearly 100 companies with more than $100 million in debt had filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, according to the American Bankruptcy Institute. That puts this year on pace to become the second-highest total behind 2009, the throes of the last financial crisis. Financial threats have encircled department stores, hotels, cruise lines, rental-car companies, airlines, restaurants and movie theaters.

    According to the American Bankruptcy Institute, Chapter 11 bankruptcy filings in the commercial sector were up 48% in May from the previous year. More significantly, those bankruptcies were up 30% just between April and May.

    The International Monetary Fund projects that the world economy will contract by about 4.9% this year. U.S. Federal Reserve chairman Jerome Powell said the American economy is looking at a 6.5% contraction this year. Powell termed the extent of the downturn and the pace of recovery as “extraordinarily uncertain.’’

    Meanwhile, personal bankruptcies were down by about 25% in the second quarter of 2020 — perhaps a reflection of the boost from government programs, stay-at-home orders or the temporary closing of bankruptcy courts — but they are expected to keep rising through the remainder of the year. It could coincide with the growing reduction of government aid.

    So in a time when tons of business file chapter 11 to restructure to keep their businesses open, Texas leads in businesses trying to remain businesses?

    Keyword "file". It does not meant that the court will approve the filing. A Chapter 11 filing still needs all the creditors to agree to the financial arrangement. Otherwise, it may still end up in Chapter 7. By the end of the year we'll have a better idea on how many of those companies filing Chapter 11 will end up in Chapter 7.

    and? That was his point, there is nothing positive about any bankruptcy filing.

    the fact that texas leads in it, and BIGLY never bodes well for an election year since the economy is always 1-2 on the top of the list of reasons why people vote for X instead of Y

    Hey Texas bragged about creating the most jobs a while back. Come to find out most were min wage, part time, fast food and retail jobs that most would need 3 to live there, but hey it still counted as a job.

    Well if that's his choice it would make decision much more clear come November.

    So glad Trump repealed that awful Act. Poor people commit the most crimes because they have nothing to live for or no other way to get other money than to rob and burglarize people in their homes or on the streets. They also do not act decent like other people. Get a better education, use your skills, and get a better job if you don't want to live with the gangs and the rest of the trash.

    Nice to you assume I'm white and also you're basing that if someone is poor that they must not be white? You're racist for saying that.
    Oh and underline me saying poor people are trash. Wait, you can't!!

    Did you not see the politco story they accidentally posted and took down complete with quotes from Joe Biden about Harris? She went from damaging him about busing to being his second, quite a step up for someone with a shoddy record among the marijuana crowd....it probably won't hurt her much, right? Being from a state that votes democrat anyways will not help.
