This shift is especially pronounced in major cities like Houston: The Texas House of Representatives Committee on County Affairs invited experts to share insights on shifting demographics, voting habits and voter opinions in Texas. Below are ten takeaways from presentations by Rice University Sociologist Dr. Steve Murdock and University of Texas professor Dr. James Henson, who directs the Texas Politics Project.Texas has always been a rapidly growing state, and that’s as true now as ever: Even modest demographic predictions show the Hispanic population will be the majority of the statewide population by at least 2050: When you consider these socioeconomic gaps and changing demographics, Texas could see a decrease in mean consumer expenditures over the next several decades: A plurality from a University of Texas/Texas Tribune poll disapprove of how education has been handled: Share As these demographics shift, Texas lawmakers say they want to make important changes to school finance. So, what do their constituents think? Most of that growth is from Hispanics.
