Trump pushes Cruz out of the lead in Texas

Source: Houston Chronicle

A new poll released Thursday puts Trump in the lead with 24 percent of support among registered Republicans in the state, pushing Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas into the second spot at 16 percent....The poll could be bad news for Cruz, who enjoyed a commanding lead with 20 percent in the June Texas Politics Project poll. It's also more bad news for former Gov. Rick Perry, who was second at 12 percent in the previous poll, but who now has dropped to 4 percent, at the back of the pack with Scott Walker and Mike Huckabee.

In third place after Cruz in the new poll is Ben Carson, at 12 percent. Jeb Bush follows at 9 percent, a troubling fourth place standing for an establishment favorite and scion of the Bush family in Texas.

Carly Fiorina and Marco Rubio are tied at 5 percent, and Rand Paul, another candidate with Texas ties, didn't rate a mention at all.

Those who know Perry and Cruz best don't much like them.

6. Probably part of a larger poll

 

and they're using those who self identify as republicans. That's not a perfect way to do it - people can lie - but it's pretty common.

8. Yes, but if you vote in party primaries they do keep track of which party.

7. This makes me laugh

 

Now Cruz is going to feel he needs to do something to get some attention (he has zero chance at the VP slot with Donald - TX already is blood red). That means something REALLY stupid is about to come out of his mouth.

13. I don't think Cruz wants a VP slot. I think he's trying to build a base who will demand he gets a

SCOTUS nomination.

11. Once upon a time, Rand Paul held himself out as a slightly different type of crazy person but he's

failed to deliver - he a sellout offering the exact same brand of crazy as the rest of the Republican nominees.
