"Ted Cruz remains in front, with a slid lead over U.S. Rep. Beto O'Rourke", Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University poll, said in the release.

At the same time, Cruz draws support from white voters, 67-30 percent, as O'Rourke claims support from black voters, 86-12 percent, and Hispanic voters, 60-36 percent, the poll shows.

Two weeks ago, Quinnipiac showed Cruz leading O'Rourke by a more comfortable 54 to 45 percent. On a day when the nation was subjected to more terror from within, and with the 2018 midterm elections around the corner, he made one with his wardrobe in a state with one of the nation's most high-profile elections. Ted Cruz (TX-R) prior to a game against the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday night.

The latest figures put the Democrat within striking distance, thanks to a strong showing among independent voters, who favor the Democrat 56 to 40 percent. Just 3 percent of likely voters told pollsters they didn't know who they were leaning towards, and just 2 percent who have decided on a candidate said they might change their mind before heading to the ballot box.

Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) and ex-Attorney General Eric Holder also were mailed suspicious packages. "Nobody should lie. Trump for the moment is taking a more cautious approach in public. "But politicians happen to lie", he said.

Per Quinnipiac, Cruz is holding on to his lead due to his gender advantage: he is winning handily with men, while O'Rourke only has a modest edge with women.

Republicans have said they believe O'Rourke's election bid "is a serious threat" to Cruz's re-election.

Early voting in the November 6 election runs through Friday.
