Sample and Methodology detail

President Donald Trump is locked in too-close-to-call races with any one of seven top Democratic challengers in the 2020 presidential race in Texas, where former Vice President Joseph Biden has 48 percent to President Trump with 44 percent, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

Other matchups by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll show:
  • President Trump at 46 percent to Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren at 45 percent;
  • Trump at 47 percent to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders at 44 percent;
  • Trump at 48 percent to former U.S. Rep. Beto O'Rourke with 45 percent;
  • Trump with 46 percent to South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg's 44 percent;
  • Trump at 47 percent to California Sen. Kamala Harris at 43 percent;
  • Trump with 46 percent and former San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro at 43 percent.
In the Trump-Biden matchup, women back Biden 54 - 39 percent as men back Trump 50 - 42 percent. White voters back Trump 60 - 33 percent. Biden leads 86 - 7 percent among black voters and 59 - 33 percent among Hispanic voters.

Republicans back Trump 90 - 8 percent. Biden leads 94 - 4 percent among Democrats and 55 - 33 percent among independent voters.

"The numbers are good for Vice President Joseph Biden who dominates the field in a Democratic primary and has the best showing in a head-to-head match-up against President Donald Trump," said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

"In historically red-leaning Texas, the report for the rest of the Democratic field is not so bad either, which could spell trouble for President Trump. It is the largest state in the country with a Republican edge."

"The president, who is on the wrong side of a too-close-to-call matchup with Biden, barely inches up in similar matchups with all the other Democrats."

"The data shows home-state hopeful, former U.S. Rep. Beto O'Rourke, is doing OK in the presidential matchup, but Democratic voters would prefer he leave the presidential campaign and run for the U.S. Senate," Brown added.

Texas voters give Trump a split 48 - 49 percent job approval rating. Men approve 55 - 43 percent, as women disapprove 55 - 42 percent.

But 56 percent of Texas voters say they are better off financially today than they were in 2016, while 26 percent say they are worse off and 17 percent say they are the same financially.

Congress should not try to impeach Trump, Texas voters say 60 - 34 percent.

Democratic Primary

Former Vice President Joseph Biden leads the primary pack with 30 percent of Democrats and Democratic leaners, followed by 16 percent for O'Rourke, 15 percent for Sanders, 11 percent for Warren, 4 percent each for Harris and Castro and 3 percent for Buttigieg. No other Democratic candidate tops 2 percent.

Biden leads among women, black and white voters and basically ties Sanders among Hispanic voters. The former vice president leads among moderate/conservative Democrats. Warren gets 27 percent of very liberal Democrats, with 18 percent for Biden and 17 percent for Sanders.

Texas Democrats and Democratic leaners say 60 - 27 percent that O'Rourke should challenge Republican incumbent U.S. Sen. John Cornyn in the 2020 U.S. Senate race, rather than continue his campaign for president. Support for an O'Rourke Senate race is strong among very liberal, somewhat liberal and moderate/conservative Democrats.

All Texas voters approve 44 - 33 percent of the job Cornyn is doing in the Senate.

Sen. Ted Cruz gets a 50 - 42 percent job approval rating.

From May 29 - June 4, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,159 Texas voters with a margin of error of +/- 3.4 percentage points, including the design effect. The survey includes 407 Democrats and Democratic leaners with a margin of error of +/- 5.8 percentage points, including the design effect.
