New Poll Shows Biden and Trump Tied in Texas

Austin, Texas – A new poll released by Quinnipiac University shows Biden neck and neck with Trump, both with 47% of those polled.

The poll also shows:

  • Donald Trump is quickly losing ground in Texas. Today, Trump and Biden are tied 47 – 47 percent among likely voters, while a September 24th poll of likely voters in Texas showed Trump had 50 percent and Biden had 45 percent.
  • Among those who are voting by mail, 63 percent say they support Biden and 31 percent support Trump.
  • “Biden and Trump find themselves in a Texas stand-off, setting the stage for a bare knuckle battle for 38 electoral votes,” said Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Tim Malloy.

The poll has a margin of error of +/- 2.9 % and is a measure of likely voters.

Texas Democratic Party Executive Director Manny Garcia issued the following statement:

“Texans, both Democrats and Republicans, are demanding change and increasingly trusting Joe Biden, Kamala Harris to lead. This poll again shows that more and more Texans are done with Trump’s chaotic presidency, divisive rhetoric, and failed leadership. We can win this thing—we just need everybody to go vote. We’re building a movement. Get your friends, family, neighbors, and colleagues out to vote today.”
