God bless you Texas.
he latest KTVT-CBS 11 / Dixie Strategies Poll of over 1,400 likely primary voters in Texas shows Republican Ted Cruz has increased his lead over real estate mogul Donald Trump. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has maintained her lead over Democratic presidential hopeful and Senator Bernie Sanders.
Looking at the statewide results, according to the poll taken Monday February 22nd Cruz now leads Trump by over eight percentage points. At the end of January, Cruz was leading by five percentage points. Over 33% of likely GOP primary voters now say they would vote for Ted Cruz while 25% of respondents saying they would vote for Trump.
Florida Senator Marco Rubio comes in third at about 15%. That’s almost 3% higher than his poll result back in January.
Dr. Ben Carson and Ohio Governor John Kasich are polling in single digits with Carson remaining largely unchanged at 6% while Kasich pulls ahead of Carson at 8%. That’s compared to 5% and 2% in January’s poll respectively.
Cruz still leads among those that identify as “very conservative” polling at 46% while Trump leads among those identifying as “somewhat conservative” polling at 29%. Kasich leads among those who identify as Moderate at 24%.
Interestingly, Trump leads among likely GOP voters who identify themselves as “Someone/Very Liberal” at 31%.
Durn straight those dang liberals love the Donald!! Cuz he ain’t no durn consistent Constitutional conservative like that Cuban Ted Cruz!! Darn it.
