Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, April 18, 2018

A new poll released Wednesday suggests the U.S. Senate race between U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz and U.S. Rep. Beto O'Rourke is far more competitive than many political observers have initially thought. The poll from Quinnipiac University shows the two men in a dead heat: 47 percent of registered voters in Texas support Cruz, the Republican incumbent, while 43 percent back O'Rourke, an El Paso Democrat. That number falls within the poll's 3.6 percent margin of error. The poll had another ominous warning for the GOP: President Donald Trump was underwater in Texas, with 52 percent of respondents disapproving of him and 43 percent approving of his job performance.

Cruz is a failure, like Ryan is a failure, like Trump is a failure.

He's also one of the worst -------- on the planet. Of course in Texas that doesn't count for as much as you'd think.

Uh huh. All Dems have to do is show up in a midterm election. Good luck.

Exactly! How did Wendy Davis fare in Texas for her gubernatorial run after she was lionized by the MSM for her filibuster of a late-term abortion ban coupled with her wearing pink sneakers? She even had the superficial edge of being attractive and having an ample breast.

It's months away. He will still likely win in a land slide - it's Texas. Just like Trump's approval rating has gone up since he is doing less moronic tweeting daily. Just think if N Korea and S Korea actually sign a peace deal. Understand, I think this may be a strategy to get the US out of S Korea by the North but you can't be sure.

No way Cruz loses. But if he does, God Bless Texas!

That was Pre-Trump. He has completely changed the board if you haven't noticed.

Given a shift of 10-20% in vote shares, she actually might have won handily. Although hard to say in Texas.
