We now see the first released US Senate poll since the New Year began, and it contains good news for the Lone Star State’s first-term Republican Senator, Ted Cruz. According to WPA Intelligence, polling for the Cruz Campaign (12/12-14; 600 TX likely voters), the Senator would have a 52-34% opening advantage over US Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-El Paso). The latter man appears to have become the consensus Democratic candidate; therefore, he should easily win the March 6th Democratic primary without a run-off. Though Mr. O’Rourke is capable of running a strong campaign and will attract national liberal funding, Sen. Cruz begins this race as a heavy favorite to secure a second term.
