Ted Cruz Feels The Blue Wave, Goes Into Panic Mode As Beto Closes Gap – Senate Race Is Now Neck And Neck: POLL

The state of Texas has not elected a Democratic senator in over three decades, but that seems like it’s about to change as Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas) closes the gap on Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), according to a new poll released on Wednesday.

The Texas Lyceum Poll revealed on Wednesday that the race is neck and neck with Cruz slightly leading O’Rourke with a 41 to 39 percentage, which is well within the survey’s margin of error of 4.67 percentage points of 441 likely voters.

Not only is O’Rourke closing in, but he has also out-fundraised Cruz. According to Federal Election Commission filings, O’Rourke raised $10.4 million in the second quarter of the 2018 cycle, bringing his cash on hand to just under $14 million. While Cruz on the other hand only raised about $4.1 million in the second quarter and has about $9.3 million in cash on hand.

The poll is quite shocking as Texas is a state that heavily leans Republican. It even surprised Chris Wilson, a former pollster for Cruz’s 2016 presidential campaign, who claimed that the survey “looks nothing like Texas voters.”

The Texas Lyceum poll surveyed 806 registered voters across Texas from July 9-25 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.45 percentage points for registered voters and 4.67 for likely voters.
