New Poll Has Biden and Beto in a Dead Heat in Texas


A new Emerson College poll of Democratic Primary voters in Texas shows former Vice President Joe Biden and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) in a statistical tie with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) right on their heels.

According to the poll, which was released on Monday, 23 percent of Texas primary voters say Biden is their preferred candidate followed by O’Rourke at 22 percent, which is well within the poll’s 5 point margin of error.

Sanders came in third with 17 percent, followed by Mayor Pete Buttigieg at 8 percent and Sen. Elizabeth Warren at 7 percent.

The Texas Democratic primary is scheduled for Super Tuesday: March 3, 2020.

In hypothetical 2020 matchups against Trump, Biden is the only Democratic candidate leading the president in Texas with 50 percent to Trump’s 49 percent. O’Rourke and Trump are tied at 50 percent each, while Trump leads Sanders, Warren, and Buttigieg.

O’Rourke’s campaign has been struggling to gain traction in early primary states like Iowa and New Hampshire, but the Emerson poll all but guarantees O’Rourke will stay in the Democratic Primary until the Texas primary.
