A questionable new poll from Emerson College (pdf) gives Donald Trump a 14-point lead over Hillary Clinton in Texas, which is just about the same margin as Mitt Romney’s over President Obama in 2012. It is the second poll this week to show a double-digit spread. However, Trump is not over 50% and minor party candidates are polling well above their historical performances. The way the sample was contacted and some other interesting results raise questions as to how the poll’s results translate to voters as a whole.
