Ted Cruz gets good news from a new Senate poll less than a month before election

Ted Cruz gets good news from a new Senate poll less than a month before election
Republican U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz maintains a sizable lead in his re-election bid, a new poll released Thursday shows.
With less than a month until the Nov. 6 midterm election, Cruz holds a 9 percentage point lead — 54 to 45 percent, the same lead he held last month — over Democratic challenger U.S. Rep. Beto O’Rourke of El Paso among likely voters, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll.
“Is the Beto bubble bursting or just hissing away with a slow leak?” asked Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll. “With less than four weeks until Election Day, Congressman Beto O’Rourke has hit a wall and remains the same nine points behind Sen. Ted Cruz as he was when Quinnipiac University polled the race last month.
“The election is far from over, but Sen. Cruz would have to suffer a major collapse for him to lose.”
The Texas-sized fight for this Senate seat, represented by Republicans since 1993, has become fierce.
This has become one of the costliest and most watched races across the country, as many wonder if O’Rourke can do what no other Democrat has done for more than two decades in Texas: win a statewide office.
The two candidates have gone head-to-head in fundraising, and criss-crossed the state holding rallies, eventually making this race a “toss up,” according to The Cook Political Report.
This new poll shows that 96 percent of the likely voters who named a U.S. Senate candidate have their minds made up about the race.
