Austin, TX — Today, yet another poll showed Trump underwater in the state of Texas and in a statistical dead heat with all of the Democratic Presidential contenders. Significantly, this poll shows that a majority, 52% of Texans will not vote for Trump in 2020, including 62% of independents. 

The poll also finds:

  • John Cornyn underwater again in Texas, with a 36% approval rating, 39% disapproval rating, and 25% with no opinion, dismal for an incumbent who has been in Washington for twenty years.
  • 62% of independents in Texas responded that they would vote against Trump in 2020.
  • Trump under 50% against every Democratic opponent for President and in a statistical dead heat.
  • More people disapprove of Trump’s handling of border/immigration issues than approve.

Texas Democratic Party Executive Director Manny Garcia issued the following statement: 

“The Texas Republican establishment knows Trump is destroying their electoral opportunities, but they lack the moral and political courage to drop him and stand up for Texans. This is our moment, that’s why Texas Democrats are organizing, stepping up to serve at all levels, and working together to deliver the fair shot every Texan deserves.

“Texas is the biggest battleground state. Poll after poll shows the same result: this election is razor-thin. Texans are demanding change and rejecting Trump-style politics. This is our moment.”
