Recently, a poll taken by End Citizens United showed that the Senate race in Texas between Ted Cruz and Beto O’Rourke is closer than the Republicans had initially reported. While the poll released by End Citizens United showed that Ted Cruz was leading by approximately 14%, other polls such as the one from the University of Texas showed that his lead may only be around 5%. This is quite surprising in a state that is traditionally very conservative. This may account for why only a dismal 38% of people in Texas approve of the job that he is doing in office.

Many people are not aware of Beto O’Rourke’s policies, he is working hard to change that by hitting the pavement in grassroots efforts. He has visited all 254 counties in Texas, even in areas that have not voted for a Democrat in decades. If elected, he will be showing a strong focus on jobs and education for those who are wanting to find jobs and willing to put the work into doing it. In addition, he also shows a strong level of support for immigrants and believes that the state needs to put an end to raids and separating children from their families. While he does show a strong focus on local politics, he hopes that Texas and the rest of the United States can come together for the benefit of the country.
According to approval polls, Ted Cruz’s main problem in this election might just be himself. He is being accused of passing policies with the interests of his donors and large corporations in mind instead of the voters.
End Citizens United has been working since 2015 to bring an end to big money influencing politics on a local and national level. After the Supreme Court of the United States decided in 2010 that corporations are people and political campaigns did not have to fully reveal where their donations came from, End Citizens United knew that something had to be done. They support candidates who believe in reforming the electoral system so candidates are elected based on their merit and policies rather than who donates money to them.
