The University of Houston poll indicates that this year Texas voters are equally unsatisfied with both candidates. Forty-eight percent said they would rate their attitude towards Trump as very unfavorable and 47 percent said the same about Clinton.

Forty-one percent rated Clinton as very or somewhat favorable, while that figure for Trump is 40 percent.

Most of the state’s voters believe that Clinton has the upper hand. Fifty-three percent say they think she will be the next president, while just 23 percent think it will be Trump.

The poll surveyed 1,000 registered voters from Oct. 7-15. It has a margin of error of 3 percentage points.
