He could be, yes. Right now I give Beto 25-30% of a chance - but if more polls come out that are favorable, that percentage will go up.

If Cruz theoretically is only +5 with English speakers, then this is still a real race.

I could probably get better results than Ipsos by throwing darts with a blindfold on. Toss it in the trash.

Ipsos is the only pollster who has shown Beto up, so they aren't exactly biased against him.

Why does anyone still take Reuters/Ipsos polls seriously?

I mean, I could kind of understand it when we were getting very little polling, like desperately using a dirty needle to get your quick fix. Kind of. But now, when we're getting tons of data from quality pollsters every day? Come on guys...

I think it will be within 52-48 either way. A four point turnout based election. I'm hopeful for Beto but I expect Lying Ted to sneak by.

My gut tells me the results are going to be too close for comfort on election night at Cruz HQ.

Um, what is with all the Weeping and wailing about ipsos polls? Genuine question as, after all the blathering about what a crappy poster they are, I looked it up and it turns out Fivethirtyeight gives them a B+ rating with a 0.6 democratic mean average bias.

That hardly screams unreliable to me. If anyone can come up with a better reason to dispute this poor as perhaps more than a or so friendly to Rourke due to in-house bias , I'm all ears.

Otherwise, O'Rourke down only five points in an English only poll seems pretty encouraging.

This same polling firm had Beto leading by 2% a month ago.

Yes, but that doesn't begin to answer my question as to why it is supposedly unreliable.

Latinos and Blacks make up the largest majority out of any state, in TX, 25%, black. Unlike in MD, where they will go with Hogan, if there is a wave in the House, TN, MS and TX will flip
