Cruz Has Double-Digit Lead



Text  



Good news for the Cruz campaign in Public Policy Polling’s new poll:

PPP’s final poll of the Republican Senate runoff in Texas finds Ted Cruz opening up a 52-42 lead, an increase from our survey two weeks ago that found him ahead 49-44.

Cruz is ahead by a whooping 75-22 margin with Tea Party  voters, more than making up for a 56-39 deficit to Dewhurst with voters who don’t consider themselves members of that movement. …

The greater excitement among Cruz voters can also be measured by their eagerness to get out and cast their ballots during the early voting period. Cruz leads 55-40 among those who say they’ve already voted, so Dewhurst will likely need a huge advantage among election day voters to overcome the deficit. But Cruz has a 49-44 lead with those who have yet to vote too.

In the Senate primary results, Cruz was 11 points behind Dewhurst. If he wins — and especially if he wins by the kind of margin that the PPP poll is showing — this is going to be a huge upset.
