Ted Cruz is becoming very unpopular in Texas. This is bad news for his Senate seat. In the upcoming midterm elections, we could see a Democrat representing Texas in the Senate.
Beto O’Rourke, who is supported by End Citizens United, is within 8 points of Ted Cruz. This number comes directly from a poll conducted by End Citizens United. The University of Texas, with a poll of their own, shows that Beto O’Rourke is only 5 points behind Ted Cruz. Read more about the group on Wikipedia.
Beto O’Rourke has been polling better the closer we get to the midterm elections. A poll conducted by Google at the beginning of 2018 showed that Ted Cruz was ahead by almost 20 points. With so many months left til November, Beto O’Rourke might just have time left to surpass Ted Cruz.
Democrats have already scored 34 political seats in the last year, and it looks like they may be set to gain even more. Flipping the House and the Senate is currently goal number one for the Democratic party.
As previously mentioned, Ted Cruz is the one losing the election. Texans are simply loosing faith in him. This is partially due to his failed Presidential bid, but it can also be attributed to people getting more accustomed to the policies of Senator Cruz. Beto O’Ruorke, despite polling so close to the well-known Cruz, is unknown to a majority of Texans. In fact, 61 percent of likely voters said they do not know enough about O’Rourke ti accurately offer their opinion on him. Citizens of Texas simply want Ted Cruz out of office. In a poll, it was shown that 49 percent of Texans view Cruz unfavorably.
