CD24 open (Toss Up): A pair of polls indicate a close race but differ widely on how set voters are in their choices.
The Democrat-aligned House Majority PAC released a poll (PDF) showing Candace Valenzuela (D) leading former Irving Mayor Beth Van Duyne (R), 47%-41%, which is within the margin of error. Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden leads President Trump, 49%-44%, in the district.
Three months out, very few “registered voters” were undecided. Just 3% of respondents were unsure about their presidential preference and 8% unsure about their congressional preference. Van Duyne is running slightly behind a generic Republican (43%) well within the margin of error. In 2018, U.S. Rep. Kenny Marchant (R-Coppell) underperformed the average Republican in the district by half a point.
