I don't like the possible answers. If Corpus applies the correct standard, the State wins the factual sufficiency argument, too, because there is no objective basis in the record to intrude on the jury's decision to disbelieve Clayton and agree with the State's theory of a drug related murder. A blood fingerprint speaks for itself. This is not like Johnson, where the victim said it was the defendant but admitted she could not see his face, Reina, where the only evidence of Reina's complicity was unatributed second-hand hearsay spoken in his presence, or White, where all the State had was one affirmative link. The CCA has already stated that evidence is not factually insufficient just because it could be construed in two different ways and the jury chooses the State's way. It isn't overwhelming, but it also isn't factually insufficient.
