Demographic Support

Texas is a cosmopolitan county in which there are various people of ethnic background. Big Jim can use the population characteristics of the people in Texas to leverage his campaign strategy, for example, the number of people living in Texas is 25,674,681 (2011estimate). Out of this group, 50% of them are eligible women voters; the populations have increased by 20% since 2000; this means that the number of voters in that country in the next two years will be 24, 000, give or take. Only 7.7% of the population is below 5 years, and the percentage of male voters in the country is only 20%. This means that there are a lot of potential in the women voters.

On the other hand, the main economic activity in the area in business, big Jim can easily exploit then business potential of Texas, organize trade fairs and establish contacts for the Texas people with potential customers and markets.

Win or Lose?

If Texas people want a champion for values, a fighter for the right of women, an economic supporter and a father to all children, then they want Jim. Jim is a father, a real son of Texas and the only contender with the values Texans need. Texas is the richest state and a real small state, but the endowments of the state do not help the residents because of the poor ideologies of the former governors. Most Texans are anti Washington and Jim is the only person who can sound the clarion call for the anti Washington campaign. Jim, might not be the first person to have casted the race as a negation of Washington, other people who have repudiated Washington and have always succeeded in their campaign. To Jim, this is a pure revivification of the hard right.

There are many Jim supporters in the Texas region than in any other area. Jim can speak Spanish fluently, and this will endear him to the Spanish community as well (bluest part of the state). The Spanish mainly dominate the southern Texas, and they hold Jim dear to them. Though none financially endowed to finance his campaign, he has support from the business society and many people. In Texas, financial goodies do not impress the electorates in that state. The support from the democratic governors association will also come in handy during his campaign trip. While history report that Texas is a red state in the country, it is imperative to note that there is a sudden paradigm shift, any scandal can affect the race and the latest scandal about the opponent contender fighting her spouse are a sign of poor leadership. This sends the Texas women a picture of a man known to condone wife battering.


In the hot race, the only virtues that are bound to help Jim attain the slot are focus and discipline. Jim is also a champion of Texas values. Most of Jims opponents are arrogant are only cronies for a revolving door lobbyists, who might strong-arm his appointees. He can steer the country, as the country is yet to weather a terrifically critical financial storm. Jim has a leadership skill that can easily help him adhere to regimen of big government and low taxes.
