Abbott Extends Lead Over O’Rourke

Last week, Beto O’Rourke had an infection and was forced to leave the campaign trail.

He was already way behind in the polls, and I stated at the time that he could not afford to lose time.

It was not exactly a bold prediction, but it did come true.

In the most recent polling, Abbott has extended his lead back out to double digits.

Pulling Away

The latest poll comes via the University of Houston and Texas Southern University.

Among “almost certain” voters, Abbott’s lead has extended to 53 to 41 percent.

Among “likely voters,” Abbott holds a significant lead of six points, 48 to 42 percent.

O’Rourke is dominating Hispanic and black voters, but he is getting crushed in the white voter demographic, losing 61 to 32 percent to Abbott.

Abbott also had a big lead among Independent voters, which will be the key to the win in the state.

In that demo, Abbott holds a 46 to a 25-point lead.

In the RealClearPolitics average, Abbott is leading Beto 48.4 to 41.2 percent.

This is far from dead-solid-lock for Abbott, as we all know.

This far out, all it takes is one little scandal to upend the race.

Having said that, as long as Abbott stays steady, he should send Beto packing, hopefully for the final time.
