There aren't that many people in Texas excited by the prospect of voting for Ted Cruz again.
In Texas (n=1211), Beto O'Rourke and Ted Cruz are dead even: O'Rourke is at 49%, Cruz is at 49%, and Libertarian Neil Dikeman is at 1%. We've polled a lot in Texas the past few months, and this marks a notable shift towards Beto.— Change Research (@ChangePolls) November 3, 2018
Beto's numbers have improved significantly over the past month or two. In prior polls, he was winning 95% support among Clinton voters, and the vote among swing voters was far closer.— Change Research (@ChangePolls) November 3, 2018
