That's why I like about Beto and this race, Beto has come out of his shell and has been attacking Cruz

Cruz is still favored, but O'Rourke has made this a closer race than I ever expected.

The clear difference between this and Quinnepac isnít Beto; itís Cruz.  Beto is stuck at 45% in both, which is believable.  Cruzís numbers are the ones that fluctuate.  When a high-quality poll shows Beto breaking past the 45% barrier, then we know we have a toss-up race.  Until then, lean R seems right.
Spot on.

In the end, it's coming down to turnout. Beto has a chance of turnout is high enough. Cruz, at this point, is still favored though.

Aren't more highly educated voters also more likely to vote, though?  So perhaps it balances out to some extent.

Not weighting by education is one of the reasons why polls and exit polls in 2016 were found after the fact to have undercounted WWC voters.

Yes, but this year is very likely to be a different electorate.  I think it's reasonable to assume that in 2016 lower educated voters were more motivated (relative to previous elections) than higher educated voters were, but in 2018 the reverse is probably true.

This is a reasonable expectation and I share it, but that doesn't mean it's a good idea not to poll education at all.

I would agree with that.

This is the Dems version of CA-SEN in 2010.

Yeah, I think you are right about that.

I think that'll end up being Tennessee.

It doesn't have to be either/or.

The thing that gives me pause about Texas is that while I think Cruz will likely win, I don't think it will end up as a blowout like California was.

This has been a Toss-Up for a few weeks now on my map. Honestly the more people underestimate Beto the higher his chances get.

Icespear has said Gillum and Beto aren't winning. Dems have the momentum now with Kavanaugh allegations, we can make wave happen. Early voting will bank the votes in early.

This should squash any talk of PPP being a ridiculous D pollster. They're generally close to the mark.

That's what I've been trying to tell some of the non-believers on here. Roll Eyes
