Biden leads Trump in survey of Texas voters from left-leaning pollster
Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) leads President Trump by a single percentage point in a new poll of likely Texas voters conducted by the left-leaning firm Data For Progress published Sunday evening.
The poll showed Biden with the support of 49 percent of likely voters, while the president trailed close behind at 48 percent. Two third-party candidates, Libertarian Jo Jorgensen and the Green Party’s Howie Hawkins, were tied with the support of 1 percent of likely voters.
Democratic U.S. Senate candidate MJ Hegar, an Air Force veteran, underperformed Biden in the poll and trails her opponent Sen. John Cornyn (R) by 3 percentage points, 50 percent to 47 percent.
The poll, while from a Democratic-aligned firm, presents the most recent evidence that the Lone Star State remains in play for the Biden campaign ahead of Election Day on Tuesday. FiveThirtyEight, an analysis site which grades polling firms on their success rate, classifies Data For Progress as a firm with a B- rating.
Data For Progress’s poll was conducted between Oct. 27 to Nov. 1, among 926 likely voters in the state of Texas. The poll’s margin of error is 3.2 percentage points.
