Voters say Cruz would do a better job than O'Rourke on a number of issues:
51 - 35 percent that Cruz would do a better job on the economy;
49 - 36 percent for Cruz on taxes;
43 percent say Cruz would do a better job on health care, as 42 percent say O'Rourke would be better;
46 - 38 percent that Cruz would be better on immigration;
50 - 37 percent that Cruz would be better on gun policy.


Looks like this campaign is a personality campaign, lol. Texas is still a GOP state, but Cruz is so slimy that he might just be able to lose it.

A lot of the respondents claim Trump isn't a factor, but this can't be helping Cruz:

Quote
Texas voters disapprove 52 - 43 percent of the job President Donald Trump is doing. Republicans approve 85 - 13 percent. Disapproval is 90 - 8 percent among Democrats and 64 - 28 percent among independent voters.

Oh yeah, that's another factor lol. Looks like TX still prefers standard republicans, but Cruz & Trump are just pretty slimy.

I'm surprised that the democrats are doing pretty well against Abott though. I would have expected him to win by double digits.


Granted, this is just 1 poll, and it seems a bit more D leaning than I'd expect.

Even if Cruz wins by this margin, Democrats are going to pick up 3 seats here.

Still Likely R. If more polls come out and show a close race, then I'll change the rating.

This is the big one. We have got plenty of polls in the past where Trump is down big in Texas, in fact we can probably expect this is normal. However, the gap between voteing behavior and approval tends to stem from the fact that Hispanics heavily dissaprove of Trump but undervote in TX because of a variety of historical and geographic factors. Therefore, the Likely voter base that could have shown up in Noverber can easily approve of Trump/match the national median of dissaproval even as the state is way in the negatives because of the undervote. However, it looks like that voting base is still anti-Trump, which means Hispanics may turn out larger then previously. This is key to Texas potentially being a race.

Interestingly enough, Beto is doing really well with the white vote (34% compared to Hillary's 24-26%). However, he is underperforming Hillary slightly among miniorities.

I am not worried about Cruz. He is polling better on every issue in that poll. He's probably still going to win by about 10.

OK, so you combine these two things and.....I don't get it, how is he only up by 3 when you combine these things, it looks like all 47% who like him are voting for him already, but then the policies should help him with the undecideds?

Maybe my math is off but this poll makes little sense to me when you dig into it

Yeah I'm taking this one with a slight grain of salt because of the other result (and I do believe Q-PAC is leaning D a bit this cycle?)
