Lyin’ Ted Increases Lead over Beto

While Red is still encouraging everyone to show up and vote, it is looking more and more like Texans (and probably the nation as well) will have to put up with Sen. Rafael Edward “Lyin’ Ted” Cruz (TP – Texas) for another six years.  In the most recent Quinnipiac University Poll, LT has a nine-point lead over El Paso Congressman  Beto O’Rourke.  LT leads Beto with a 54% to 45% gap among likely voters.  That means that there are very few undecided voters out there and unless there is an October surprise, Red will still have LT to kick around for six more years – which is admittedly fun.  Red credits Beto with having run an enthusiastic campaign – but if in the age of Trumpism, the charismatic Beto cannot get more than 45% of the vote after having raised over $23 million, there is little hope that any Democrat will win statewide office in Texas for another decade at least.
