During this most recent election cycle in the United States, the Republican party has been put on the defensive. This cycle has seen the Democrats pick up a total of 34 seats. The telling part about this resurgence from the Democrats is the fact that many of these seats have been picked up in areas that have traditionally voted Republican in the past.

Recently, a poll put out by End Citizens United has demonstrated the Beto O’Rourke is quickly closing in on longtime Republican incumbent Ted Cruz. End Citizens United is an organization that is committed to lowering the amount of influence that money has over the political and election system in the United States. If O’Rourke is able to pull off this unexpected upending of Cruz in Texas, it would absolutely be a major moral victory for the Democrats.

A huge part of the success that O’Rourke is enjoying on the campaign trail is the fact that he has been willing to really put in the work while getting his name out there. He is supported by End Citizens United due to his willingness to work hard and this is really starting to resonate with many voters. The polls are reflecting an appreciation of the fact that O’Rourke has been on a non-stop campaigning across the state of Texas. When it comes to political issues, the End Citizens United endorsed candidate Beto O’Rourke ha a platform that focuses on workers. His stance on immigration is also moving the hearts of many voters who have been unsatisfied with the current Republican stance. O’Rourke’s platform is one of giving welcome to immigrants as well as making sure to acknowledge the fact that they have been a huge part of the overall makeup of the United States.

The question will now be, has the work O’Rourke has put in going to be enough to oust a long-standing politician the likes of Ted Cruz. There does seem to be a trend in the state of Texas that demonstrates that left-leaning political movements are becoming more popular. End Citizens United polls do continue to show Cruz in the lead, but it also appears that the lead is narrowing and this really could come down to the wire in this critical election between Ted Cruz and Beto O’Rourke.
