Conflicting Polls Emerge On The Texas Senate Race With Less Than A Week To Go

Two polls out of Texas on the Senate race, released hours apart, show a notable difference in point leads — but both agree Republican Sen. Ted Cruz is ahead of his Democratic challenger Rep. Beto O’Rourke.

A Dixie Strategies/CBS11 poll has the Texas senator expanding his lead to 10 points and a UT Tyler poll has him leading by just over 4 points, a contrast from other major polls.

The statewide Dixie Strategies/CBS11 poll, released Tuesday evening, shows 52 percent of likely voters preferring Cruz, and only 42 percent going for O’Rourke. The margin widened by 6 points compared to the same poll that was taken in early September.

The poll was conducted from Oct. 25 to 26 and comprised of a sample of 588 likely voters. It maintains a 4.04 point margin of error and was conducted via landlines and live calls on cellphones.

  • Cruz 2016- a Constitutional Conservative at last!
Cruz will win. I will be so happy not to be subjected to Twitchy O'Rourke's unending commercial blitz starting next Wednesday.
Principles matter. Words matter.
