Texas Poll Has Trump and Biden Tied

A Dallas Morning news poll finds Trump and Biden tied in Texas.

Texas is considered a red state and a win by any Democrat in November would be considered a shock.

Trump now leads in the RCP polling aggregates in the state of Texas by only 1.4%.

A recent PPP poll had Biden in the lead by 1.

Per Dallas Morning News, if the presidential election were held today, Trump, a Republican, and former Vice President Joe Biden, a Democrat, would tie in Texas, 43%-43%, the poll found.

The poll was conducted before growing news coverage of an allegation of sexual assault against Biden in 1993 by one of his former Senate staffers, Tara Reade, and before Biden addressed the allegation Friday.

In the July 14 Democratic runoff for U.S. Senate, decorated former Air Force helicopter pilot MJ Hegar of Round Rock leads state Sen. Royce West of Dallas, 32%-16%. For Democratic voters, the poll’s margin of error was plus or minus 4.64 percentage points.

In November matchups, both Democratic Senate hopefuls trail incumbent Republican John Cornyn. However, West’s not as far behind. In each hypothetical pairing, 34% are undecided.
