HOUSTON, Texas — A survey from Rice University says that 52 percent of Harris County (Houston area) residents have now declared themselves as Democratic or to lean Democratic. Only thirty percent declare themselves to be Republican.
A number of Texas universities have joined the chorus of colleges nationwide encouraging high school students to participate in anti-gun walkouts and protests. They say it will not hurt prospective students’ chances for admission. Several institutions of higher learning even took to social media to share their messages supporting “civic engagement.”
