End Citizens United, a national group seeking to reduce cash in politics, conducted a recent poll showing that Beto O’Rourke is closing the gap in the Texas Race against the current frontrunner Ted Cruz. While Cruz is still likely to win the Texas Senate race, it is possible that O’Rourke could pull off a dream upset for the Democrats according to End Citizens United recent poll results. If O’Rourke were to pull off the upset it would be one of a long line of upsets, such as the Alabama Senate Runoff, that Democrats have scored against Republican opponents since the election of Donald Trump.

End Citizens United is conducting a grassroots effort supported by candidates such as Beto O’Rourke to eliminate corporate money in politics. Electing politicians such as O’Rourke could change the balance in the Senate that could potentially lead to legislation that could eliminate the disastrous consequences of the Citizens United decision which allowed unfettered corporate money into politics. Currently, the End Citizens United poll shows that Cruz is leading the Texas Senate race by forty-five to thirty-seven percent. While this is still a large gap, it is not outside of the realm of possibility for Beto O’Rourke to close that gap by November.
Ted Cruz’s infamous personality flaws may explain why Beto O’Rourke has been able to close the gap in traditionally Republican Texas. Indeed, forty-nine percent of poll respondents have indicated that Ted Cruz is viewed in an unfavorable light. Sadly, because of the influence of money in politics, most voters are unaware of O’Rourke’s policies, and, as such, are unwilling to support him despite the unlike-ability of Ted Cruz. Furthermore, those who have been exposed to O’Rourke have indicated that he has natural charisma and should appeal to voters if they had the chance to listen to him speak. Time will tell whether O’Rourke will be able to use his charisma to close the gap by the time the November elections roll around. Visit: https://www.linkedin.com/company/end-citizens-united/
