Some encouraging news today out of Texas:
Texas remains a toss-up in the presidential race. But Democrat Joe Biden’s modest – and somewhat startling – lead over President Donald Trump has evaporated in the last two months.
From a 5-point edge in early July, Biden now lags Trump by 2 points among likely Texas voters in a poll released Sunday by The Dallas Morning News and University of Texas at Tyler.
Trump’s lead is 48-46.
That turnaround is sure to gladden the hearts of Republicans, who have no hope of controlling the White House without Texas.
But as Trump has clawed his way back into contention just in time for the post-Labor Day sprint, Sen. John Cornyn has lost ground against Democrat MJ Hegar. His lead now stands at 11 points, down from 13 in early July.
But nearly 3 in 10 voters remain undecided, making for a potentially volatile fall.

Among Registered Voters, Cornyn leads Hegar 34-24 with 36% undecided. Among Likely Voters, Cornyn leads 39-28 with 28% undecided so there’s still a ton of voters for her to win over and pull this off. So let’s keep up the momentum to flip Texas Blue.
