Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is solidly ahead in his bid for re-election on the Republican Party's ticket.
In a new poll released by the Texas Tribune, Cruz is solidly ahead of his primary opposition as he seeks the Republican Party's nod for a second term in the United States Senate. The latest poll shows Cruz pulling down a whopping 91 percent of those surveyed, while his two closest competitors, television producer Bruce Jacobson, Jr. and accountant Mary Miller, pulled in 3 percent a piece. Former La Marque mayor Geraldine Sam won 2 percent in the survey, while Houston attorney Stefano de Stefano won 1 percent.
On the Democratic side, Congressman Beto O'Rourke (D-El Paso) is holding down a solid lead in his race. 73 percent of those surveyed gave O'Rourke the nod for the U.S. Senate spot, while Sema Hernandez won 19 percent and Edward Kimbrough pulled in 8 percent.
In total, 15 percent of Republicans said they do not yet have a preference and 33 percent of Democrats said they have no preference.
Voters will decide both races in the March 6th primary. A runoff, if necessary, will be held in May.
