Here’s another red flag that Trump isn’t winning as much as his crazed cult followers want you to believe – he’s barely winning Texas when Romney won the state by 17 points.
Here’s how he’s doing in three different polls right now:
Trump +3 — UHouston https://t.co/V6uznf3Vt3
Trump +2 — WaPo/SMhttps://t.co/oEJl7qwocQ
Trump +4 — WFAA/SUSAhttps://t.co/3DBDzDssaM

So, on average, just three percentage points above Hillary, and within the margin of error. Now, here’s how Romney was doing four years ago at about this time:
UT/TT poll: #Romney 55%, #Obama 39% in Texas. 53% disapprove of Obama's work. 52% have fav. opinion of Romney. http://t.co/KH5kXFot

SIXTEEN points!! That proved to be pretty accurate, as Romney beat out Obama by 15.8% eventually in the 2012 election.
There are a lot of insane conspiracy theories about the polls over-sampling Democrats (sound familiar, Romney2012 alumni? lol!), but if you’re comparing one poll to the polling at the same time four years ago, I don’t see how they could rig these things. But then I don’t have a tinfoil Trump hat on, so I’m susceptible to chemtrails and flouride in the water.
