Source - The Daily Express
Beto O’Rourke has become something of a political favourite, captivating audiences in his bid to unseat the incumbent Senator.
But the charismatic Representative for Texas 16 is up against a formidable opponent.
Ted Cruz is politically adept and has already cut his teeth in a presidential campaign when he went up as a Republican candidate in 2016.
Despite being referred to as the least popular Senator in Washington DC, Ted Cruz is still favoured to win the race.
According to polling site FiveThirtyEight, Mr Cruz is a seven in nine (or 77 percent) favourite against Mr O’Rourke.
Texas is known as a ‘likely’ hold for the Republicans - meaning a challenger could still win, but it would be a major upset.
The House of Representatives is polling to swing to the Democrats, but this certainly doesn't mean it’s a guarantee.
FiveThirtyEight gives the Democrats an 88 percent chance of winning control of the House across the US.
For Texas, it’s looking likely to be a fairly Republican-dominated group of representatives in the House.
For the 36 Texan districts, the polling is as follows:
15 districts solid Republican
11 districts solid Democrat
Eight districts likely Republican
One district leaning Republican
One district toss-up.
