AUSTIN (KXAN) — A poll released by Public Policy Polling on Tuesday found Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden holds a 1-point lead over President Trump in Texas, 48-47, reflecting a broader trend of statewide polling in recent months.
The poll surveyed 764 registered voters on Aug. 21-22 following the Democratic National Convention. The results are within the margin of error of 3.6%.
“Texas Democrats have made monumental progress, but we know there’s much work to be done,” said Manny Garcia, executive director of the Texas Democratic Party. “We continue to register new Texans, organize our communities, and welcome all voters of conscience to the movement that will save this country.”
“Texas is the biggest battleground state,” Garcia said.
