Texas was on the national stage this week — both figuratively and literally —from Donald Trump campaign helpers to “Dancing with the Stars.”

Emily Ramshaw, editor in chief of the Texas Tribune, says despite recent polls showing his lead shrinking – even some that show that Clinton’s ahead in Texas – Ramshaw still thinks Texas will go to Trump.

“I don’t think there is any question that Texas is going to go for Trump,” Ramshaw said. “But I do think what these poll numbers are showing is that the numbers are tight and people don’t really want to come out and say they are for Trump.”
