Okay we get it. Cruz is ahead by mid single digits.

Not unless they look right, but I'd still like to see more.

And Beto is net negative in favorability(44/49) while Cruz is (51/44)....so much for running only positive ads.

Or "so much for the idea of Texas seeing any Democrat favorably or any Republican unfavorably in the year 2018."

I mean, they haven't elected a statewide Democrat since like 1992, right? This is hardly a new phenomenon. It's actually impressive Beto is doing as well as he is. But a win was always a pipe dream. As in you had to be smoking some good pipe to dream it.

The other Republicans down ballot are winning by double digits, even corrupt insane trash like Dan Patrick and Ken Paxton. But I'm sure Beto's 6 point deficit is only because he ran ads that Atlas didn't approve of and he could be winning if only he hired Atlas Production Studios. Roll Eyes

1994 was the last time they actually won statewide office.

2002 was the last competitive race in which John Sharp obtained 46% of the vote for Lt. Governor.

His map would not resemble anything like Beto's win today. Sharp did not even get Harris County.

LOL, Atlas always finds a way to blame a woman somehow. Now Valdez's Weak Candidatails™ are a thing.

Beto is the only reason Valdez isnt losing by even a larger margin.

Despite this poll, Beto is campaigning in TX and this isn't the end to be all. FL, NV, TX, and AZ underestimate Black and Latino strength. Even in OH GOV, McConnell has a 25% approval and Trump is ethically challenged, in a Dem wave year

You don't say? I thought for sure Beto would drop out and endorse Cruz after seeing this poll!

Texas remains a firmly Republican state. I don't think Democrats will win a statewide election here for several more years, and it will probably not go Democratic at the presidential level until the 2030s at the earliest. A lot of time and money has been wasted by the party that could have been invested into more winnable races, like Arizona and Nevada.

It is true, there are large #s of Beto signs and T-shirts outside of Texas.

The University of Texas and Texas Tribune are unlikely to poll MO or IN.

McCaskill is probably done. But, in TX, a Democratic can make up a 5 point deficit with Latinos and Blacks
