Trump tops Democrats in hypothetical 2020 matchups in Texas: poll

Texas voters would choose President Trump over top 2020 Democratic candidates if the election were held this month, a new poll shows. 

Former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, who dropped out of the Democratic presidential primary late last week, ran the closest when paired against Trump in a mock 2020 match-up, according to the Texas Tribune poll released Monday. Trump had a 6-point lead over O’Rourke, 47 to 41 percent.

The poll also tested Trump against former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro, a Texan and former mayor of San Antonio. Trump would beat Castro by 13 points, 46 to 33 percent, according to the survey. 

The Texas Tribune does not appear to have tested any other Democratic president candidates against Trump. 

The poll also found that Biden is leading the Democratic race among Texas voters, at 23 percent. Warren trails him by 5 points, at 18 percent support. 

O’Rourke, who is no longer in the race, was the third most popular candidate among Texas voters with 14 percent support, based on the poll. 

Sanders trails at 12 percent.
