I am not a fan of polls. However, like the DB, I agree this one has more credibility than most.
“The first event early in the day came in the form of a new poll from Quinnipiac, showing Governor Greg Abbott holding a 19-point lead over his poor, un-funded, out-of-her-depth Democrat opponent, Lupe Valdez, and coming up with a 9-point lead for Ted Cruz over Irish Bob O’Rourke, who likes to call himself “Beto” in order to try to attract Hispanic voters.
While this poll is probably no more useful than any of those that came before, it did at least survey “likely” Texas voters, and provides one data point indicating the race is moving into a more normal paradigm as Election Day approaches and Cruz. after basically ceding the playing field to his opponent during the first 9 months of the year, actually begins to campaign in earnest.”https://dbdailyupdate.com/index.php/2018/09/19/the-democrat-medias-blue-wave-crashes-on-the-shoals-of-texas-reality/
Buckle up, buttercup.
“This district has not seen a Republican hold the seat in 139 years.
Flores’ win marked an incredible upset in a district that political observers said shouldn’t have been competitive for Republicans. Low turnout in special elections and high-level GOP interests in preserving a Senate supermajority helped push Flores across the line, they said.
Hillary Clinton won District 19 by over 12 percentage points in the 2016 presidential election!”
“The first organization to endorse Flores, TRTL noted the faithful Catholic’s victory cements a Republican supermajority in the Texas Senate, which will “allow Senate Republicans to bring our Pro-Life bills to the floor without any Democrat anti-Life opposition.” https://www.churchmilitant.com/news/article/pro-lifers-celebrate-major-election-win-in-texas
I went to Republican Party Bexar County Headquarters recently. Exuberant, yard signage snapped up, breakout meetings, like a party. Ran into a Church friend. MAGA “Ashley Parker reported on the enthusiasm of the Trump supporters, “Some brief anecdotal scene from the Trump rally here in Las Vegas: One woman drove in from San Diego. Another drove 16 hours from Elk City, Idaho. A man and his son flew down from Washington State. And everyone in the long line in 95 degree heat is nothing but wildly supportive.” https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2018/09/photos-just-like-2016-massive-lines-for-trump-las-vegas-rally/
Maybe African-American and Hispanic voters like a winning economy too.
“This week, Texas Republicans won a special election for a state Senate seat in a district along the Mexican border. Every Republican campaign in the country should study this race carefully.
You may not have read about this GOP victory, because the liberal national media is not exactly excited to report that Republicans reclaimed a seat they had not held in 139 years. The liberal media is especially shy about reporting on a Republican victory in a district that Hillary Clinton carried by nearly 12 points in the 2016 presidential election. From the left’s standpoint, this victory is even more frightening because the district is 73 percent African-American and Hispanic.”
Hawley recalled that Trump told him to host a political rally at the biggest stadium possible and he would fill it.
“I have to confess. I let him down a little bit,” he said.
Hawley is challenging Democrat Senator Claire McCaskill in the 2018 midterm elections.”
I appreciate Little Jebbie speaking every so often. Reminds me ‘what could have been’.
“quintessentially Bush – father or sons. Passive aggressive, morally posturing, and chidingly condescending toward the very people one is supposedly trying to court; it encapsulates what has always been the fundamental weakness of this elitist clan.
Globalist to the marrow of their beings, the Bushes always had to pretend – enough to get by at least – that they really were conservative. “
