This is the largest lead yet for Abbott that I have seen. And it's interesting to see Abbott polling so strongly, in the mid fifties. This is about where I expect the race to end up, and I think Abbott will be the major factor in bailing out Cruz.

Andrew White would probably be losing by only 10, but yeah, Safe R->Safe R.

Actually IceSpear, Andrew White would've lost this race yes but he would've lost it by 10 rather than 20, and that could be all the difference in the end for some downballot races.

Safe R, now how about a poll from a state like Kansas/Iowa/Maine?

Safe R, but I highly doubt that there will be that many Abbott/O'Rourke voters.

This. There’s just no way there is a difference of 15% on Election Day between the governor and senate results, as this poll finds. This also leads me to believe that most of the undecideds in the senate race are Abbott voters or leaners - the math doesn’t really work out otherwise unless you believe that like 12% of the electorate will vote for Abbott / O’Rourke in November.

If O’Rourke keeps the senate race close Abbott will not win a twenty point blowout. If he does win a twenty point blowout, then the senate race won’t really end up all that close.

I agree mostly, there'll probably be about 5%, so most likely Cruz and Dem environment bringing Abbott down to 10-12 points instead of what this poll shows.
