Looks like Beto has a chance to make it closer given he has higher support among registered voters, but obviously not enough to win. Still impressive for a Democrat in Texas, but close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.

Also Trump's approval is awful here for a Republican, possibility we could be looking at this again in two years.

This poll is a really good example of how effective O'Rourke's campaign is...it has Cruz up by 7 while Abbott's routing by 18 points.

I've said Cruz by 5-7 for a whole year at this point. No reason to change my opinion on that. Where I differ from people on this thread is seeing a Dem down by mid-single digits as a major milestone in Texas' glacial shift, rather than a disappointment.

Pretty much every decent pollster has shown Cruz ahead by 7-9 points. And with only 3 weeks to go, I don't think O'Rourke has enough time to make up that much ground. Safe Rafael.

RV is +5, so it depends on the LV model. I don't think anyone really knows what the electorate will look like this year.

Frustrating thing is Trump is 41/50 approval among all Texas adults. If only most of them would vote, it would be way easier to go Dem.

Yeah, it's pretty clear this race is over. Still, Beto gave it all he could and I look forward to a historic performance. He'll also be building up the enthusiasm and infrastructure that will eventually propel a Democratic victory in Texas.

Not to mention Cnn polls have been overly favorable to Democrats all cycle. Bobby o'Rourke has followed a long line of Texas Democrats who raise insane sums of money from gullible out of state leftists before losing badly and leaving the state

It is only a disappointment if you had unrealistic expectations. Have sensible expectations and you won't be disappointed so often.

Beto is continuing to post pretty amazing numbers with White voters in these polls. Cruz is only winning whites 66-33. In a year with Presidential-level non-white turnout, Beto would have a very real prospect of winning if he could post those sort of numbers with whites.

Beto, however, is only winning non-whites by 62-32.

There does seem to be a tendency in polls to sometimes overstate Dem support among whites and underestimate it among non-whites.

However, if the polls are correct on the white voters but incorrect on the non-whites, that seems to me like the most likely way it could potentially be a bit closer than it seems.

No, I never had too high expectations but still...Ted Cruz should not hold public office much less be a United States Senator.

I know, I'm getting sick of this race. I think the national media is obsessed with taking down Cruz.

Cruz will probably win this by +10 on election day.
