A new poll in Texas shows that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s lead has swelled to 12 points over opponent Hillary Clinton.
The KTVT-CBS 11/Dixie Strategies Poll reveals that if the election for president was held today, 52 percent of likely voters said they would vote for Trump, and 39 percent said they would vote for Clinton, reported CBSDFW. The Dallas CBS affiliate wrote, the poll result “casts doubt on any Democratic victory on November 8.”
Polls by the CBS affiliate in August had Trump 11 points over Clinton with 46 percent to Clinton’s 35 percent. In October, their poll had Trump at 45 percent and Clinton at 38 percent.
Dixie Strategies pollster Brian Graham told CBS 11’s Jack Fink, “People have now decided and it appears that Donald Trump has captured most of those undecided voters as we have gotten closer [to the November general election].”
