NEW POLL: Texas Democrats Fired Up Ahead of 2018

Austin, TX– According to a new poll flaunted by a conservative news outlet, Breitbart, up and down the ballot, Texas Democrats are within striking distance of a Trump Republican Party in disarray.

Highlights (BTW 4 point margin of error):

  • Mike Collier is within 2 points of Dan Patrick

  • Justin Nelson is within 4 points of Ken Paxton

  • Beto O’Rourke is within 9 points of Ted Cruz

  • Lupe Valdez is within 10 points of Greg Abbott (gaining huge ground after a 19-point May Quinnipiac Poll spread)

Texas Democratic Party Chair Gilberto Hinojosa issued the following statement:

“Poll after poll shows the blue wave is rising and Texas is a single-digit state, but we cannot take anything for granted.  It’s clear that Texans are fed up with failed Republican policies and are ready for change.

“There has never been a better time to register voters, mobilize, and get the word out that Democrats are fighting for everyone’s fair shot to get ahead.”
