Yet Another Poll Shows Ted Cruz Leading Challenger Beto O'Rourke

Facebook Reveals Biggest Political Spenders In The Run-Up To Midterm Elections

Ted Cruz for his seat.

A new poll Monday shows that Republican U.S. Sen.

"With a week to go, Texas U.S. Sen".

That compared to a 54 percent to 45 percent Cruz lead in an October 11 survey by Quinnipiac University. Both surveys were conducted in conjunction with Reuters and the University of Virginia.

Just 3 percent of likely voters contacted by the pollsters remain undecided, reflecting the deeply polarized nature of the electorate and the fact that Cruz is just as appealing to conservatives as O'Rourke is to progressives.

O'Rourke, an El Paso congressman, has run a surprisingly close race in a state where a Democrat hasn't won statewide office in 24 years. Quinnipiac's previous poll two weeks ago showed O'Rourke trailing Cruz by 9 points, seemingly having lost his momentum after a series of polls in September showed him trailing in the low single digits.




White voters back Cruz 67 - 30 percent.

O'Rourke led 56 percent to 40 percent among independent voters and 96 percent to 2 percent among Democrats.

Men are lining up behind Cruz, 56,39 percent, and women are supporting Cruz, 52-45 percent.

"Senator Cruz is ahead due to his winning the gender gap". And just 2 percent of those who could name one of the Senate candidates indicated they might change their mind before the election.

President Donald Trump was in Texas to rally support for Cruz last week, and the start of the polling period. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
