New Yorker cartoon comments on Texas’ possible new look

If you’re keeping up with recent polls attempting to gauge Texas’ standing in this year’s presidential race, you’re probably (and understandably) not sure what to think.

A similarly timed UT/Texas Tribune poll, however, shows Trump with a smaller lead and characterizes Texas as “tossup status.”

The New Yorker posted a cartoon today that gives a peek into what a blue Texas would look like — literally.

The cartoon shows the state of New York offering an uncharacteristically blue-clad Texas (not without a staple pair of boots) a few words of encouragement on the new look, while a red Oklahoma flees in the background.

Don’t forget to vote, guys!
