Ted Cruz Trails Dem in 2018 Re-Elect Poll

First Kansas, then Georgia, now Texas...the Democrats just ain't gettin' tired of losing...

It's laughable how delusional the pollsters have become...they really think Cruz is going to lose to a pro-La Raza democrat? In Texas? LOL...they don't have enough Californians yet to make that happen.

2018 is a long time away... what's the point of polls at this stage for that election? To help the anti-Trumpers not lose hope after getting killed in 2010, 2012, 2014, and 2016... its propaganda for them to feel better... sad...

Truth be told I think Cruz could lose- but it would be in a primary not general. If his #s are low because Republicans are pissed that where they will take out anger before snapping back to party preference in the general.

This is funny:

While O’Rourke has announced his Democratic challenge to unseat Cruz in 2018, Castro has not yet done the same, though Texas Democrats see him as a contender against the conservative senator.

As of now he is the favorite.

Texas is a funny case when it comes to polling. Polling far out almost always has both major party candidates in the 30s in my experience. But it also has 30% or more of the folks "undecided." These "undecided" voters have, since GWB won governorship there, always broken heavily for the GOP candidate. Don't expect anything else to change in 2018. The only way a GOP candidate for statewide office would have cause for concern is if the Dem candidate was polling at/near/or above 50%, and consistently so. But that ain't going to happen.

GA-08 R+24 or so?

Kansas R+what? infinity?

The party in power becomes increasingly unpopular the longer they hold power as they are viewed as the ones responsible. This is especially true when they hold the house, senate, and presidency.

I know we want to make it all about which side is right, moral, agrees with us, etc etc etc. Reality is it swings back and forth. And the more extreme your side is, the more extreme the next group is. I expect the Democrats are going to be the party of not just "no" but "hell no". And the Republicans will amp it up even more when the democrats are in power.

Eventually something will break in a fundamental way. Might happen with Trump. who knows.

Still bitterly clinging to any shred of hope you can grasp, no matter how thin.

I love it.
