Quinnipiac Poll: Cruz Leads O'Rourke by 9 Points

Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, who is locked in a tight fight for his seat with Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke, lampooned his opponent in a warning to Texas voters on Twitter Sunday: "if Beto wins, BBQ will be illegal!"

Country music icon Willie Nelson once again weighed in on the "flak" he's receiving for his support of Texas Democrat Beto O'Rourke with a simple message: "We're not happy until they're not happy".

However, Cruz has wide margins of support among white voters.

Latino voters were about one-fourth of the Texas vote for president in 2016.

The poll showed Nevada U.S. Senator Dean Heller holding a 3-percentage-point lead over Democratic U.S. Representative Jacky Rosen. Texas, Florida, Arizona and Nevada, all surveyed in the poll, are four of the most competitive Senate races.

Analysts have also warned that U.S. companies selling in China could face nationalist backlash against their products. Trade relations have since deteriorated between China and the United States in a tit-for-tat escalation in tariffs .

A Reuters-Ipsos-University of Virginia Center for Politics poll released on Wednesday showed the Democratic candidate up 47-45 over the Republican incumbent.

The singer said that he will take part in a fundraiser with Mr. O'Rourke in Austin on September 29.

The buy is roughly half what his campaign spent for a week of English-language ads on two stations in Dallas during the same span. O'Rourke is also running statewide Spanish-language radio ads. "[O'Rourke] needs to crack into that 40 percent [of the] Republican base that are Hispanic voters".

"Gov. Greg Abbott is highly regarded by Texas voters and appears on the way to a landslide re-election".

Abbott is now running Spanish-language radio ads and will be going up with Spanish language TV ads in the coming weeks. However, the rally for O'Rourke differs because it will be Nelson's first free public performance on behalf of a political candidate. "'We're not happy until they're not happy". O'Rourke is a supporter of gun control. "Let's work together to lead the way on healthcare, education, and immigration reform".
