Cruz, Trump Neck-And-Neck atop Texas Poll

The latest Texas poll by the University of Texas/Texas Tribune has revealed that Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are atop of the Republicans.

Trump and Cruz both secured 27 percent of the vote.

The Hill reports:

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) follows at 9 percent, while Jeb Bush, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Carly Fiorina each take 4 percent.

Cruz also leads as the second-choice candidate for voters there with 19 percent, while Trump is the second choice for 15 percent. Carson is also the runner-up pick for 19 percent.

Bush tops the list of Republicans that voters would “definitely not support” for the GOP nomination at 25 percent, with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) second at 22 percent.

Cruz and Rubio sparred for attention in the fourth GOP debate this week as both candidates rise toward Trump and Carson, who have been leading national polls.

The survey of 542 registered Texas voters was conducted Oct. 30 to Nov. 8 with a margin of error of 4.2 percent.
