Trump tops Texas poll, 5 points ahead of Cruz

Source: Austin American-Statesman

Television personality and billionaire Donald Trump is leading the Republican presidential pack in Texas with 21 percent support among likely voters, five points ahead of the stateís own U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, according to the latest poll.

Still, this is somewhat good news for Cruz, who gained modest ground since the last poll which placed him third with 15 percent support.

Because the Republican field remains large, the poll also asked registered voters who their second choice for president would be. The question revealed that 37 percent of Trumpís supporters would support Cruz, followed by 24 percent for retired neurosurgeon and political newcomer Ben Carson.

The poll, conducted by the non-partisan Texas Lyceum, shows an early snapshot of Texas that resembles national polls: Carson is polling at 12 percent; former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush at 10 percent; former business executive Carly Fiorina at 6 percent; and U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, of Florida, at 3 percent.

2. The polls were conducted between September 8 - 21.

They can be found under Texas Lyceum at http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/latest_polls/ . There are pdfs that link to the entire questionnaire by clicking on the Texas Lyceum link. The sample on the Democratic side is limited to only 185 registered voters so the margin of error with that small of a sample is going to be significant.
