Cruz Leads O'Rourke In Latest Poll

Cruz Leads O'Rourke In Latest Poll

The difference in this poll and others released by Quinnipiac in the past on this race is who was surveyed. He has expressed his admiration for Bridges previously, and now the R&B crooner is returning the support and rallying behind O'Rourke in his bid.

Democrats are broadly seen as facing steep odds in trying to capture a Senate majority in the November 6 congressional elections as they have to defend seats in 10 states that the Republican Trump won in the 2016 presidential election. After a Cruz spokeswoman in August mocked O'Rourke as a "Triple Meat Whataburger liberal who is out of touch with Texas values", the Democratic candidate brought his campaign to a Whataburger franchise and ordered a Triple Meat Whataburger on Facebook Live. "But it's possible", said Larry Sabato, director of the UVA Center for Politics.

The demonstration was in response to another attempted Cruz zinger last week.

Latino voters were about one-fourth of the Texas vote for president in 2016.

O'Rourke was in striking distance of Cruz in earlier polls, but a Quinnipiac poll released on Monday showed Cruz with a nine-point lead over the Democratic challenger.

O'Rourke on Tuesday launched his campaign's first Spanish-language TV ads, a move acknowledging the Democrat would need strong turnout by Hispanic voters to win. Most O'Rourke voters ranked healthcare as their most important issue, followed by the Supreme Court, while Cruz supporters chose the economy or immigration.

The Reuter's poll defies a similar study released by Quinnipiac University on Tuesday that showed Cruz opening a wide 9-point advantage over O'Rourke.

The poll showed Nevada U.S. Senator Dean Heller holding a 3-percentage-point lead over Democratic U.S. Representative Jacky Rosen. They want us to be just like California.
