TROUBLE IN TEXAS? O’Rourke DOWN 8-POINTS Against Cruz in New Poll

Originally published at:

Despite raking in a staggering $38 million in just three months, Texas Democratic hopeful Beto O’Rourke is down against Sen. Ted Cruz in new polls released this week; setting the stage for a last-minute showdown heading into the 2018 midterms.

The new survey published by the New York Times Thursday night has O’Rourke down a surprising 8-points against the incumbent GOP Senator; raising serious questions over the Democratic Party’s dream of turning Texas blue.

“Mr. Cruz was ahead by eight percentage points, 51 percent to 43 percent, in the poll of 800 registered voters, which had a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.6 percentage points. About 5 percent of voters said they were undecided or declined to say whom they would vote for,” states the poll.

“Though a Democrat has not won statewide office in Texas since 1994, the party has pinned its hopes on Mr. O’Rourke’s long-shot bid, betting that a breakthrough in this solidly red state can help power Democrats to an unlikely Senate majority,” adds the article.

Looks like things might be tightening up.

I don’t think so. Ted was up by only 1 last week.
