Four polls.* Three views of how the race is going for U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz in Texas. How big is his lead? Depends on which poll you find most compelling. He leads Trump by 15 in a University of Houston poll, by 8 in a KTVT-TV/Dixie Strategies poll and a UT/Texas Tribune poll and by 1 in an Emerson poll. Trump is in second or statistically tied for first across the board. How’s Marco Rubio doing? Again, depends on the poll. He’s either in the upper single digits (Houston), around 15% (KTVT and UT/TT) or statistically tied with Cruz and Trump (Emerson).
* A fifth poll is discussed at the end of this post.
