New Poll Shows Texas Holding At “Virtual Dead Heat”

The San Antonio Express reports:

A new poll shows Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is holding a narrow lead over President Trump in Texas. According to the survey conducted by Morning Consult, 48 percent of likely voters say they plan to vote for Biden, while 47 percent are for Trump.

The Morning Consult survey was conducted from October 11 to 20 and polled 3,347 likely voters. Results from the poll carry a margin of error of 1.7 points, meaning the two candidates are in a virtual dead heat with a possible Biden lean.

Another recent poll conducted by Public Policy Polling showed the same picture of the overall race, with Biden garnering 48 percent of voters and Trump 47 percent. A recent Quinnipiac University poll showed the two deadlocked at 47 percent.
