Latest Poll Puts Ted Cruz In A Deep Hole As Dem Rep Beto O’Rourke Closes In

The race for a seat in the Senate in Texas is too close to call, something many people weren’t expecting in a deep red state. A new poll released on Wednesday showed Rep. Beto O’Rourke (Texas) closing in on Republican Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas).

A Quinnipiac University poll of the race showed Cruz leading O’Rourke by only 3 percentage points — 47 to 44 percent — which falls within the margin of error, meaning the race is “too close to call.”

The candidates are neck and neck within their respective parties. According to the poll, 88% of Democrats support O’Rourke’s bid to replace Cruz, while 88% of Republicans support keeping Cruz in charge.

According to the poll, 46% of Texas voters view Cruz favorably, while 44% see him unfavorably. On the other hand, 30% of voters view O’Rourke favorably, but only 16% view him unfavorably. 53% of poll takers said they don’t know him enough to form an opinion.

If O’Rourke can reach those who don’t know enough about him to form an opinion to lean his way, this race could very well go to the Democrats.

The new Quinnipiac poll, conducted April 12–17, surveyed 1,029 Texas voters and has a margin of error of 3.6 percentage points.
