Trump Leads in Two New Texas Polls

Donald Trump leads by 3 points in a new University of Texas/Texas Tribune Poll, while the lead is 7 in a poll released by Crosswind/American Statesman

While limited, polling in the Lone Star State has been pretty similar over the past several weeks, with most surveys showing a small, but consistent lead of about 3 points for Trump. This spread was seen again in today's U. Texas poll.

Trump now leads by 3.6% on average. While that spread keeps Texas a toss-up in the electoral map based on polls, the consistency of the polling - not to mention the state's voting history - would point to him having the advantage with just over 10 days to go until Election Day.
