Travis Scott Endorses Beto O'Rourke in Texas Senate Race

Facebook Reveals Biggest Political Spenders In The Run-Up To Midterm Elections

Facebook Reveals Biggest Political Spenders In The Run-Up To Midterm Elections

Two weeks ago, O'Rourke received national attention when he reported raising $38 million for the quarterly period - or about three times of what has been raised by Cruz.

However, the Democrat remains down in the polls by 6.8 points with just nine days remaining until the election, according to an RCP average.

U.S. Senate candidate Beto O'Rourke appears to be picking up ground in the polls as we approach the one week mark before the 2018 midterm elections.

A September Ipsos poll showed O'Rourke beating Cruz by 2 percentage points among likely voters.

Just 3 percent of likely voters contacted by the pollsters remain undecided, reflecting the deeply polarized nature of the electorate and the fact that Cruz is just as appealing to conservatives as O'Rourke is to progressives. However, recent polls still show him trailing by single digits.

Independent voters prefer the Democrat 56 percent to 40 percent. "He wins men 56-39 percent, while Representative O'Rourke can manage only a 52-45 percent edge among women", Brown said.

This costly race recently tipped the scales at more than $100 million, when O'Rourke reported raising more than $70 million, compared with the almost $30 million raised by Cruz, according to the most recent campaign finance reports filed earlier this month with the Federal Election Commission.

Early voting in the 2018 midterms began October 22 and continues through November 2.
