Despite having trailed Joe Biden in the historical deep-red state of Texas, President Donald Trump in late July warned that his opponent's energy policies would threaten the oil and gas industry.

The latest Dallas Morning News poll shows Trump might have swayed some voters with his message.

Biden's 5-point Texas lead in early July among likely voters is now 2 points in Trump's favor, 48% to 46%.

There are a surprising 5% of those likely to vote still undecided, however, leaving some room for movement down the stretch in the presidential campaign.

"I will be shocked if Biden carries Texas," never-Trumper Terri Sharman, 62, of Tyler told the Morning News.

She did not like Trump using the White House for the Republican National Convention acceptance speech.

"That should be sacred land," she told the News. "It belongs to the people. It belongs to both parties. He could have picked anyplace

"But nobody up there will tell him no, about anything."

The University of Texas at Tyler conducted the poll Aug. 28-Sept. 2 among 1,176 registered voters and 901 likely voters. The margin of error is plus or minus 2.87 percentage points for registered voters and plus or minus 3.22 points for likely voters.
