One Of The Many Reasons Why A Democrat Cannot Win In Wise County

After straight ticket voting, you don't stand a chance.

Take the County Judge's race.

12,485 total votes cast.

  • Approximate Straight Ticket voting by all voters (which was around 60%): 7,490
  • Of which 87% were Republican: 6,517
  • 13% by Democrats: 973
  • That leaves non-straight ticket voters at: 4,995

So......the Democrat could receive every one of those 4,995 votes which were not cast as straight ticket and he'd still lose 6,517 to 5,968.
