Ted Cruz now has a double digit lead in Texas senate race

Austin American-Statesman:
U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, holds an 11 percentage point lead over U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-El Paso, in the race at the top of the November ballot in Texas, according to a Quinnipiac University Poll released Wednesday.

Half Texas voters prefer Cruz in his re-election bid, compared with 39 percent for O’Rourke, according to a news release announcing the poll results.

That’s a substantially wider lead from April 18, when another Quinnipiac University Poll had Cruz leading O’Rourke 47 percent to 44 percent.

Cruz, “apparently benefitting from a nationwide Republican mini-move, has taken a solid lead in his reelection race,” Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac Poll, said.

The poll has Cruz leading 57 percent to 35 percent among men, up from 51 percent to 40 percent in mid-April. Women go 44 percent for Cruz and 42 percent for O’Rourke, compared to last month when women went 47 percent for O’Rourke and 43 percent for Cruz.

Cruz gets 46 percent of Hispanic voters, with 44 percent for O’Rourke. White voters back Cruz 62 percent to 28 percent and black voters go to O’Rourke 70 percent to 15 percent, according to the pollsters.
Gov. Abbott leads Lupe Valdez in the governor's race by 19 points.  Texas does not appear to be a site of any "blue wave." election.

While the poll found that voters did not know much about O'Rourke that is probably not a good sign for him either considering his position on 2nd amendment rights and his backing of the Democrats open border policies.
