Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz leads his Democratic challenger Beto O’Rourke by 9 points among likely voters, according to a Quinnipiac University Poll released Tuesday. 

Ninety-three percent of likely voters have already made up their minds about who they’re going to pick.

“The Texas U.S. Senate race between Sen. Ted Cruz and Congressman Beto O’Rourke, and Democratic hopes for an upset win there, have boosted talk of a Senate takeover. These numbers may calm that talk,” said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

“Congressman O’Rourke may be drawing big crowds and media attention, but Texas likely voters like Sen. Cruz better.”
