I'm pumped about this poll

Texas is changing right now and we need you with us.

The grassroots energy we’re seeing across the country and Texas means we can win in 2018 -- especially after the results from Kansas and Georgia.

Just this morning, the Texas Lyceum[1] poll shows Democrats are strong. 2018 will be the battle of our lifetime:

  • Texans disapprove of President Trump. (54% disapprove) 
  • Texans oppose Trump’s border wall (61%) & mass deportation (62%) 
  • Democrats are tied with Ted Cruz. (Castro 35% v. Cruz 31%; O’Rourke 30% v. Cruz 30%) 
  • Democrats are beating Dan Patrick. (Collier 27%, Patrick 25%)

Donald Trump’s numbers are in the ditch, Texas Republicans are vulnerable, and our Democratic champions are poised for victory.

We must have the resources to keep building a stronger state party, hire more staff to organize, support our candidates, and provide support to our county parties. We have a once-in-a-life opportunity to beat Trump Republicans.

We need you. If we’re going to win, it is going to take every single Democrat doing everything we can and a little more. Do we have your support?


Thank you for all that you do,

Gilberto Hinojosa
Chair, Texas Democratic Party
