Here at Palmer Report we love to remind everyone that one new poll is just a data point, and that if you want to measure actual movement in a race, you’ve got to look at all of the latest polls in that race. This brings us to Texas, where it turns out Donald Trump is in even more trouble than we thought.
Two weeks ago Dallas Morning News published a poll that had Joe Biden up by five points in Texas. Since that time two other polls have pegged Donald Trump as being up by one point, and by two points, in the state. Now the new Quinnipiac poll says Biden is up by one point in Texas.
This helps establish that Texas really is in play in 2020. It’s not merely some pipe dream. Poll after poll is making clear that Texas is a toss up state. If Joe Biden can win Texas, it’ll leave Donald Trump with virtually no Electoral College path to victory.
