Rick Perry Beats Ted Cruz in New 2018 Senate Primary Poll
Former Texas Governor Rick Perry beats U.S. Senator Ted Cruz in a hypothetical 2018 GOP senate primary poll published Thursday. The poll shows Gov. Perry with a 9 point lead over the incumbent freshman senator.
The poll released Thursday afternoon from the Democrat-leaning Public Policy Polling (PPP) firm states that Perry would defeat Cruz in a head-to-head match-up in 2018, theTexas Tribune reported. The poll put forward several head-to-head match-ups to prospective voters and Perry was the only hypothetical candidate to defeat Cruz in the poll.
Of likely voters polled, 46 percent said they would vote for Texas’ longest-serving governor versus 37 percent that said they would vote to re-elect Senator Cruz.
PPP contacted 944 “likely voters” and is said to have a plus or minus 3.2 percent margin of error. – READ MORE
