Sen. Ted Cruz still holds a 54-45 percent lead over Rep. Beto O’Rourke, the Democratic challenger in the Texas Senate race, a new Quinnipiac University Poll reveals.

The lead by the Republican incumbent mirrors the same results the survey found in its September poll.

Here is how the survey breaks down:

  • 94 percent of Republicans back Cruz, while 6 percent support O’Rourke.
  • 93 percent of Democrats support O’Rourke, compared to 7 percent who back Cruz.
  • 52 percent have a favorable view of Cruz, while 44 percent have an unfavorable opinion of him.
  • 45 percent have favorable opinion of O’Rourke, compared to 47 percent who say they have an unfavorable view of him.
  • 51 percent of Texas voters approve of the job President Donald Trump is doing, compared to 46 percent who do not.

“Is the Beto bubble bursting or just hissing away with a slow leak?" asked Peter Brown, assistant director of the poll. “With less than four weeks until Election Day, Congressman Beto O’Rourke has hit a wall and remains the same 9 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 poll, conducted Oct. 3-9, surveyed 730 likely voters in Texas. The margin of error is plus or minus 4.4 percentage points.
