Donald Trump has had a very bad run of polls the last few weeks, and the hits just keep on coming!
A new poll in Texas has Trump leading Hillary Clinton by just four points in the state, which is within the margin of error. The fact that Hillary is statistically tied with Trump in Texas, one of the most reliably Republican-voting states in the country, tells you everything you need to know about what direction this race is headed.
The Survey USA/WFAA/TEGNA poll has Trump at 47%, Clinton at 43%, Gary Johnson at 3%, and Jill Stein at 1%, with 5% of voters undecided. The margin of error is 4%, which means Clinton and Trump are essentially tied in the state. Given Texas voting history, this is AMAZING.
The last time Texas voted for a Democrat in a presidential election was in 1976, when it went for Jimmy Carter over Gerald Ford. But what’s equally notable is the margins: Republicans have won the state by double-digits in every election after 1996. Oh, and the last time a Democrat was elected to statewide office in Texas was in 1994.
