Texas remains a toss-up in the presidential race. But Democrat Joe Biden’s modest – and somewhat startling – lead over President Donald Trump has evaporated in the last two months.
From a 5-point edge in early July, Biden now lags Trump by 2 points among likely Texas voters in a poll released Sunday by The Dallas Morning News and University of Texas at Tyler.
Trump’s lead is 48-46.
That turnaround is sure to gladden the hearts of Republicans, who have no hope of controlling the White House without Texas.
