Posted on 09/12/2018 5:53:38 PM PDT by OddLane
Four years ago a seemingly invincible US senator came within a percentage point of losing his seat in an unexpectedly close election. Mark Warner was pretty moderate as far as Democrats go, a good fit for a state, Virginia, that had drifted out of the Republican column in the last two presidential elections and just elected a full slate of Democratic statewide officials a year before. But midterms are when presidents and their parties get rebuked, and Warner, a telecom millionaire who had once been tipped as presidential contender, took his support for granted. The Republican, lobbyist Ed Gillespie, was supposed to be hopeless, but he nearly claimed what was supposed to be a safe Democratic seat for the GOP.
Texas has been solidly Republican for a lot longer than Virginia has been Democratic, and by a wider margin. But that makes the fact that Ted Cruz has only a single-digit lead over his Democratic opponent, Beto ORourke, all the more remarkable. Polls suggest Senator Cruz is in trouble, and if the overwhelmingly Republican character of the Lone Star State counts against that, the likelihood that 2018 will be as bad for the GOP as 2014 was for the Democrats throws the contest up in the air again...

Hell yes, we mind. But then the Fake Mexican is loaded with California billionare money too. Whats he spending it on besides yard signs?
Alinksy is in full gear here with this dipstick carpetbagger. Expect full on voter fraud and #resistance crap on Election Day by his followers.
Every conservative in Texas needs to show up and vote for Cruz.
These democrats are freakin nuts!
Cruz does not deserve to lose. You are a fool.
Obama won twice because of Republican women.
Just how radical "Beto" is.
2, or even 1 decade ago it would have been preposterous to think that someone like him would be able to get elected in Texas.
The issue in midterms is always turnout.
I’m a bit worried about the tendency to blame voters for Cruz’ shortcomings on the campaign trail, he’s largely absent much like Hillary, and for the very same reason, he’s just not likable. He shot himself in the foot badly and multiple times during his 2016 Presidential run, which is only adding to his woes.
I certainly hope his sorry self can be dragged across the finish line by President Trump, whom he disparaged and pulled every trick in the book right up to and through the convention to try and prevent his becoming the Republican nominee.
Ted Cruz did this to himself. He and only he is responsible if he manages to do the nearly impossible, which is to lose reelection as a Republican incumbent Senator in Texas.
The left is very excited about this charlatan. He has some Mexicans fooled too. I’m in Waco and there’s black Beto signs all over the damned place. GO VOTE IN NOVEMBER!!!
One of the main drivers-like in most of Europe-is women.
Remember GA and TX was going to Clinton in 16, yes right, GA the state which never voted for a black , well half black man in 8 , or 12 would vote for a old , white, hag.
“If Cruz loses in Texas to a guy who asked the VFW to remove the American Flag, we are finished as a nation”.
Total BS with no facts to support it.
I'm probably the outlier in terms of not finding Cruz that unlikeable-maybe because of my own history as a debater-but the truth is that he's not going to win based on his charisma. He needs to rally the base.
How many people answer polls? I hang up if they call me and throw them in the garbage if they come in the mail
No, Ted Cruz will win.
Does the enemedia lie, you bet they do.
Also they get you on the suckers list for mailings and political beggars
He doesn’t know how to rally the base, clearly. He hitched his wagon to the Alamo yesterday, normally a good move politically for a conservative in Texas since it’s under attack by PC zealots wanting to change historical markers. But, he walked right into highlighting one of his problems instead. Remember The Alamo? Ted Cruz? Heck, he couldn’t even remember he was Canadian.
I think Ted Cruz will win, but I also expect this race to be a lot closer than 2012. I’m not panicking though, it just energizes me that much more to vote for Cruz.
Broken glass fellow Texans!
Only a Communist nut would vote against Cruz. He will win, but it’s time that EVERY freaking Republican joined Pres. Trump, going on offense and attacking relentlessly.
Its not braggging if its true (Downtown Austin, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio excluded ).
