One writer thinks so. It's Bob Ray Sanders at the Fort Worth Star Telegram. Link.
Obama got a majority of the votes in the large Texas urban areas. And as unpopular as he is among most Texans, those urban areas are home to many who might follow an Obama recommendation. With Obama campaigning for Davis, those people, plus a few million who haven't yet registered to vote, will hand her the governorship, or so the theory goes.
Is he right? To most Texans President Obama is the worst president the country has had since they were old enough to know what a president is. But Mr. Sanders points to the demographics of those urban areas -- African American and Hispanic -- and assumes Wendy Davis will not able to make the case herself but that those voters would act on an Obama recommendation.
Since many of Obama's voters voted for him because of his skin color, it's questionable whether the Obama magic would rub off on a white blond lady. But it's fun to speculate. Which is larger: the number voters Obama would draw or the number of voters Obama would repel?
Wendy is probably right on this one thing. She's better off without him.
