According to new polls released by Quinnipiac University Ted Cruz has a 9 point lead on Socialist Beto O’Rourke.
The independent Quinnipiac poll showed Ted Cruz had a 9 point lead, and a 54 percent likely to vote Cruz and a 45 percent likely to vote Beto O’Rourke. There was only a 1 percent undecided who they will vote for.
The poll is showing no matter how much money and free advertising from media and celebrities get Texans are rejecting Beto O’Rourke’s anti-American and Anti Texas stance.
“The Texas U.S. Senate race between Sen. Ted Cruz and Congressman Beto O’Rourke, and Democratic hopes for an upset win there have boosted talk of a Senate takeover. These numbers may calm that talk,” said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll. “Congressman O’Rourke may be drawing big crowds and media attention, but Texas likely voters like Sen. Cruz better.”
According to the results page on Quinnipiac poll:
Women are divided as 50 percent back Cruz and 48 percent back O’Rourke. Men back Cruz 57 – 42 percent. White voters back Cruz 66 – 32 percent. O’Rourke leads 97 – 3 percent among black voters and 54 – 45 percent among Hispanic voters.
Republicans back Cruz 94 – 6 percent, as Democrats go to O’Rourke 94 – 4 percent. Independent voters are divided with 51 percent for O’Rourke and 47 percent for Cruz.
Texas likely voters approve 53 – 44 percent of the job Cruz is doing and give him a 52 – 43 percent favorability rating.
Immigration is the most important issue in their U.S. Senate vote, 27 percent of Texas likely voters say, as 21 percent list health care, 16 percent cite the U.S. Supreme Court and 15 percent say the economy.
This race has been all over the place with polls the last few months with Beto O’Rourke within 6 points in august with a 4.1 point margin of error. This Shows Texans are firing back rejecting the socialist agenda by the increase in Ted Cruz poll lead.
However, everyone who is voting in Texas should remember Democrats know O’Rourke was never going to win, they are using him to increase Democrat voter turnout in Texas and potentially steal smaller election seats.
