A new poll published Wednesday shows Democrat Beto O’Rourke with a razor thin edge over Sen. Ted Cruz in the high-stakes showdown in Texas; raising serious questions over whether the GOP can retain control of Congress this November.

According to a new survey from Reuters, O’Rourke leads Cruz by just two points with a slight edge of 47% to 45%. The poll contains a margin of error of four percentage points.

The Reuter’s poll defies a similar study released by Quinnipiac University on Tuesday that showed Cruz opening a wide 9-point advantage over O’Rourke.

“Larry Sabato, director of the U.Va. Center for Politics, said Cruz’s feuds with Trump during the 2016 presidential election tarnished his reputation with some Texas Republicans,” writes the Washington Examiner.

The President announced his plans to campaign for Cruz in the weeks leading up to the 2018 midterms; vowing to stump for his former rival to help retain control of the Senate this November.
