TX-Sen: PPP Finds A 3 Point Race Between Beto O'Rourke (D) & Desperate Ted Cruz (R)

Some more big news out of Texas courtesy of Public Policy Polling’s latest poll:

The race for the Senate in Texas is a dead heat, with Sen. Ted Cruz (R) leading Rep. Beto O'Rourke by only three points, according to a Public Policy Polling (PPP) survey released Thursday.

The survey by the left-leaning pollster shows Cruz slightly ahead with 48 percent of the vote compared to O'Rourke's 45 percent. That's well within the poll's 4-point margin of error.

The PPP poll comes a day after a Reuters/Ipsos/University of Virginia Center for Politics survey showed O'Rourke with a slight 2-point advantage over Cruz. Taken together, the polls underscore the increasingly competitive nature of the race.

O'Rourke, a three-term representative, mounted what appeared to be a long-shot bid for Cruz's Senate seat last year. Texas hasn't elected a Democrat to the Senate in three decades, and statewide offices are dominated by Republicans.

PPP surveyed 613 registered Texas voters from Sept. 19-20 on behalf of Protect Our Care. This is the fourth poll to come out this week and the third one to show that this race is in toss-up territory. We have to keep up the momentum here.
