POLL: How Does Ted Cruz Stack Up Against All 1000 Challengers?

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and other senators, gather for final votes on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, Aug. 3, 2017. After the GOP health care bill collapsed last week due to opposition within Republican ranks, the Senate worked in rapid succession this week as the chamber confirmed a new FBI director, sent President Donald Trump a key veterans health bill, and cleared a batch of lower profile nominations that have been bottled up by Democrats.

The Dallas Morning News foolishly endorsed one of his Republican opponents a few days ago, but does Ted Cruz have anything to worry about this year?

The eyes of Texas are upon the masses of people running for both the Republican and Democrat nominees for Senate, and so UT and the Texas Tribune polled those races.

I can’t resist: this race is on Cruz control. That’s right. I said it.

Despite having four Republican challengers, Senator Ted Cruz is up 88 points, with 91% of the Republican vote. Governor Greg Abbott is doing even better, he’s up 90 points at 95-5 over his lone competitor.

In other words, things couldn’t be going better. Despite the demonization attempts, Sen. Cruz continues to dominate.

For the Democrats, Lupe Valdez and Beto O’Rourke have very strong positions as they run to be the sacrificial lambs against Abbott and Cruz respectively.

But neither they nor any primary challengers ought to quit their day jobs.
