Cruz holds narrow lead over O'Rourke in latest poll

Facebook Reveals Biggest Political Spenders In The Run-Up To Midterm Elections

Beto O'Rourke makes a point during a televised debate with Ted Cruz. Early Monday afternoon, it was already clear that Dallas County will break its record for number of votes cast on the eighth day of early voting during a midterm election. Ted Cruz remains in front, with a slim lead over U.S. Rep. Beto O'Rourke. O'Rourke managed to squeeze nearly as much support in the survey of 1,078 likely voters from Texas' black (86-12) and Latino populations (60-36) as well as Texas women (52-45). However, recent polls still show him trailing by single digits. And O'Rourke claims a lead with Independent voters, 56-40, and Democrats, 96-2 percent.

At the same time, Cruz draws support from white voters, 67-30 percent, as O'Rourke claims support from black voters, 86-12 percent, and Hispanic voters, 60-36 percent, the poll shows. Only 3 percent of Texas likely voters remain undecided and only 2 percent of likely voters who name a U.S. Senate candidate say they might change their mind in the next eight days.

Before becoming the president he had complained that the bank is moving very slowly in increasing the interest rates. He had also commented that keeping the interest rates artificially low is affecting the health of the economy.

Per Quinnipiac, Cruz is holding on to his lead due to his gender advantage: he is winning handily with men, while O'Rourke only has a modest edge with women.

These numbers reflect the amount raised since O'Rourke entered the race a year ago.
