Hold on to your horses!….
A new poll out on the Texas US Senate race has Democrat Beto O’Rourke ONE percentage point behind Republican Senator Ted Cruz…..
ONE PERCENTAGE POINT?
I still think Ted Cruz will pull this out…
This IS Red State Texas….
But if the movement IS to Democrat O’Rourke?
And he isn’t cresting too soon?
The US Senate just could be in reach for Democrats come next yearn the back of a House ‘wave’….
And I’m be damn happy to be wrong on this race….
The survey, which was released on Monday, found that Cruz leads O’Rourke 38 to 37 percent. Four percent of voters favor a different candidate and 21 percent remain undecided.
The survey comes as O’Rourke continues to gain momentum in his quest to unseat Cruz.
While Texas has not elected a Democrat to the Senate in three decades, polls continue to show that the race between O’Rourke and Cruz will be tight. Just last week, a new NBC News–Marist survey found that Cruz led O’Rourke by 4 points.
In addition, the Cook Political Report shifted the race from its “likely Republican” column to “lean Republican” earlier this month.
Emerson College notes that O’Rourke is a popular candidate, which could spell trouble for Cruz. According to the survey, the three-term congressman is viewed favorably by 37 percent of registered voters.
O’Rourke leads Cruz among voters in the 18–34 and 35–54 age range….
