Sample and Methodology detail

With Texas as one of the biggest hot spots in the coronavirus pandemic, voters say 65 - 31 percent that the spread of coronavirus is "out of control," according to a Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pea-ack) University poll of registered voters in Texas released today.

Nearly three-quarters, 74 - 25 percent, think the spread of the coronavirus in the state is a serious problem.

Two-thirds, 66 percent, say they personally know someone who has been diagnosed with the coronavirus, a 31-point spike since early June when 35 percent said they personally knew someone who had been diagnosed with the coronavirus.

"The concern is palpable as the number of virus victims soars and it's getting more personal every day, as the patient lists increasingly include friends, family and neighbors," said Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Tim Malloy.

CONCERNS ABOUT HOSPITALS

Nearly 7 out of 10 voters, 69 percent, say they are either "very concerned" or "somewhat concerned" about the state's hospitals running out of space to care for sick patients. Thirty-one percent say they are "not so concerned" or "not concerned at all."

STAY-AT-HOME ORDERS

More than half of voters, 53 - 44 percent, think the governor should not issue a stay-at-home order for the state to slow the spread of the coronavirus.

However, voters say 68 - 29 percent that if local officials want to issue stay-at-home orders for their local areas, the governor should allow them to do so.

FACE MASKS

Eighty percent of voters approve of Governor Greg Abbott's order requiring most people in Texas to wear a face mask in public. Nineteen percent disapprove.

RE-OPENINGS

More than half of voters, 52 percent, say looking back, Governor Abbott reopened the economy "too quickly." Thirty-three percent say he reopened the economy "at about the right pace," and 13 percent say he did it "too slowly."

More than three-quarters of voters, 76 - 21 percent, say they believe that the closing of bars is effective in slowing the spread of the coronavirus.

CORONAVIRUS RESPONSE

Voters are split on the way Governor Abbott is handling the response to the coronavirus with 47 percent approving and 48 percent disapproving. It's a 21-point swing in the net approval from early June when 56 percent of voters approved and 36 percent disapproved.

In contrast, there isn't much change in the way voters in Texas view President Trump's handling of the response to the coronavirus. Texas voters approve, a negative 45 - 52 percent, compared to June's 47 - 51 percent approval.

JOB APPROVALS

Governor Abbott: Voters approve with a split 48 - 44 percent of the job Governor Abbott is doing, a 20- point swing in the net approval from June when voters approved 56 - 32 percent.

President Trump: President Trump receives a negative 45 - 51 percent job approval rating, virtually unchanged from a month ago.

Senator Ted Cruz: 48 percent approve, 42 percent disapprove.

Senator John Cornyn: 41 percent approve, 35 percent disapprove.

"The governor takes a big hit for his haste in trying to jump start the state. Popular just seven weeks ago, his approval rating drops precipitously," Malloy added.

2020 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION

In the race for the White House, 45 percent of voters support former Vice President Joe Biden, while 44 percent back President Trump. That compares to early June when the race was equally tight and voters backed Trump 44 percent to Biden's 43 percent. In today's survey, Democrats back Biden 94 - 3 percent, independents back Biden 51 - 32 percent and Republicans back Trump 89 - 6 percent.

"With crises swirling through American society and a country deeply divided, there's no other way to slice it. It's a tossup in Texas," Malloy added.

BIDEN VS. TRUMP: THE ISSUES

In direct matchups, Trump holds a clear lead when it comes to handling the economy. Biden holds a clear lead when it comes to addressing racial inequality. On health care, handling a crisis, and response to the coronavirus, the candidates are tied or essentially tied.

Asked who would do a better job handling ...

The Economy: Trump 56 percent, Biden 40 percent.

Response to the Coronavirus: Biden 48 percent, Trump 45 percent.

Health Care: Biden 47 percent, Trump 47 percent.

A Crisis: Biden 47 percent, Trump 47 percent.

Addressing Racial Inequality: Biden 51 percent, Trump 39 percent.

2020 TEXAS SENATE RACE

In the race for the U.S. Senate, Republican Senator John Cornyn leads Democrat MJ Hegar 47 - 38 percent.

When asked about opinions of the candidates, 41 percent hold a favorable opinion of Cornyn, 24 percent hold an unfavorable opinion of him, and 34 percent haven't heard enough about him.

For Hegar, 24 percent hold a favorable opinion, 19 percent unfavorable, and 56 percent haven't heard enough about her.

CONFEDERATE SYMBOLS

More than half of voters, 52 - 39 percent, oppose removing Confederate statues from public spaces around the country. Republicans oppose removing Confederate statues 86 - 11 percent. Democrats support removal 71 - 23 percent. Forty-six percent of independents support removal, while 38 percent oppose.

The numbers and breakdowns are similar when it comes to renaming military bases named after Confederate generals. Fifty-three percent oppose, while 40 percent support.

When it comes to the Confederate flag, 47 percent of Texas voters view it as a symbol of Southern pride. Forty-four percent view it as a symbol of racism.

880 self-identified registered voters in Texas were surveyed from July 16 - 20 with a margin of error of +/- 3.3 percentage points.
