According to a Quinnipiac University survey released Wednesday, 44 percent of registered voters in Texas say they’d vote for the GOP incumbent if the election were held today, with 43 percent saying they’d support the former vice president and presumptive Democratic nominee.
Republicans questioned in the survey overwhelmingly back the president, with Democrats overwhelming supporting Biden.
The survey also showed that voters are split on who would do a better job handling the continued response to the coronavirus pandemic, with 47 percent saying Biden and 45 percent saying Trump.
The president’s job approval in Texas stands at 45 percent approval and 50 percent disapproval, unchanged from September 2019.
But there’s an expected wide partisan gap, with 91 percent of Democrats and 61 percent of Independents supporting mail-in voting and 68 percent of Republicans opposing it.
