That, according to Cruz, is what is at stake for Texans, who are known for their love of barbecue, in November's election, in which Democrats have the chance to flip a critical Senate seat.

Quinnipiac surveyed 807 likely voters in Texas by phone from September 11-17, with a margin of error of 4.1 percentage points.

Country music icon Willie Nelson once again weighed in on the "flak" he's receiving for his support of Texas Democrat Beto O'Rourke with a simple message: "We're not happy until they're not happy". Most O'Rourke voters ranked healthcare as their most important issue, followed by the Supreme Court, while Cruz supporters chose the economy or immigration.

O'Rourke was in striking distance of Cruz in earlier polls, but a Quinnipiac poll released on Monday showed Cruz with a nine-point lead over the Democratic challenger.

Other recent independent polling on the Texas Senate race has shown a closer contest.

Nelson is performing a fundraiser for O'Rourke, who is challenging Sen. I'm not saying probable.

The results measured how voters felt at the time of the survey. "But it's possible", said Larry Sabato, director of the UVA Center for Politics.

"The Texas U.S. Senate race between Sen".

Cruz didn't explain what tofu has to do with O'Rourke or Democrats, or how a US senator would outlaw barbecue in a state, but in a speech a week earlier, he said liberals wanted to make Texas "just like California, right down to tofu and silicon and dyed hair".

If Gillum wins, he would be Florida's first black governor, and enthusiasm around his campaign could help Nelson as the two share the Democratic ticket across the state.

In California's Democrat-versus-Democrat race, U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein held a 20-point lead state Senator Kevin de Leon, according to the poll.
