Clinton 53% – Trump 43%

 

Kim Ogg 53% – Devon Anderson 46%

 

Ed Gonzalez 52% – Ron Hickman 48%

HISD Proposition 1: Against 64% – For 35%

What do these numbers mean? University of Houston Political Science Professor Brandon Rottinghaus says, “it’s too early to call for Harris County because the rural counties votes have not come in yet” and “if Hilary Clinton wins by 10% in Harris County then she’ll bring everyone else with her.”

What do the numbers mean for the Houston Independent School District? News 88.7 Education Reporter Laura Isensee says “it’s unchartered territory because every other district that voted for this proposition has voted yes.”
