A new Quinnipiac University poll shows incumbent Republican Sen.

Beto is now catching up to his Republican opponent Senator Ted Cruz, who's seeking re-election. O'Rourke managed to squeeze nearly as much support in the survey of 1,078 likely voters from Texas' black (86-12) and Latino populations (60-36) as well as Texas women (52-45). "Ted Cruz remains in front, with a slid lead over U.S. Rep. Beto O'Rourke", Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University poll, said in the release. However, recent polls still show him trailing by single digits. O'Rourke also leads Cruz 56-40 among those participants in the poll who described themselves as independents. On a day when the nation was subjected to more terror from within, and with the 2018 midterm elections around the corner, he made one with his wardrobe in a state with one of the nation's most high-profile elections.

In the latest, 49 percent of respondents said they would vote for Cruz, while 44 percent said they would vote for O'Rourke.

This year, China imported various Japanese films and has been exploring its pool of stories that Beijing could adapt. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the signing of the China-Japan Treaty of Peace and Friendship.

Ted Cruz is still holding on to a lead among likely voters in Texas. Only 3 percent of Texas likely voters remain undecided and only 2 percent of likely voters who name a U.S. Senate candidate say they might change their mind in the next eight days.

"Sen. Cruz is ahead due to his winning the 'gender gap.' He wins men 56 to 39 percent, while Representative O'Rourke can manage only a 52 to 45 percent edge among women". The margin of error is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.

President Donald Trump was in Texas to rally support for Cruz last week, and the start of the polling period.
