That's why many of us have a hard time believing any of them. I saw a poll 3 days ago saying Abbott was widening his lead.

This poll may be an outlier but at least it's some possible good news. I think we have to stay positive. The polls have been wrong a lot in the recent past, with few people having landlines and changing demographics that may under count certain groups.

What do you think should be done to get them to swing to Beto? Perhaps move a little to the right for just two weeks? Like take a stand on lower property taxes or something that won't piss off his base, but will excite moderate conservatives who don't like Trump/Abbott.
