The Texas Two-Step

As you may have heard, the Texas primary voting process is like no other. Texas voters are being asked to vote during the day, and return in the evening to caucus for their candidate.

I'm not complaining about this process. I personally believe this process favors Obama. Soccer moms, seniors over 60 yrs old and the working class (Clinton's base) are less likely to return to caucus for Clinton after voting during the primary. Soccer moms tend to have a pretty busy schedule in the evenings. Seniors may not appreciate the caucus setting, and will likely be at home resting during the evening hours.

Obama's base, young college-age voters will likely show up early to caucus for Obama, and will hang out all night if they must.
