This is really surprising...that he is beating Beto.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden

Looks good for Biden in the Texas primary.

I'm wondering if they also did any GE polling of match-ups against Trump. Hope they did.

as a VP candidate? VP candidates are always posited as "attack dogs", thank you Spiro Agnew!

Beto has said he will take it to the "source of the pain" - Donald Trump. He whacks Trump everywhere he goes.

Is anyone seeing a Biden-Beto 2020 or a Lizzie-Beto 2020 ticket?

A VP who can visit deeply unexplored enclaves of America, those ignored or outside mainstream media, and rouse them to action is not to be dismissed or ignored. Beto can even do this if he is NOT on the ticket.

Heading into the third Democratic presidential debate next week in Houston, former Vice President Joe Biden is leading Beto O’Rourke and the rest of the Democratic field among likely Texas Democratic voters, according to results of the Texas Lyceum Poll released Thursday.

The poll conducted Aug.16 to 25, found Biden was the choice of 24% of Democrats, followed by O’Rourke, the former congressman from El Paso and 2018 Democratic nominee for Senate, at 18%, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren at 15%, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders at 13%, and California Sen. Kamala Harris and former San Antonio Mayor and HUD Secretary Julian Castro at 4% each.

“This result is probably disappointing to Castro supporters, particularly his current standing among Hispanics in the state,” said Daron Shaw, University of Texas government professor, who oversaw the poll with Joshua Blank, the Lyceum’s research director. “But the Texas primary is more than six months away, and so much is going to happen between now and then. What is clear, though, is that both Castro and O’Rourke need a strong showing somewhere prior to March 3, 2020 in order to convince Texans that they stand a real chance.”

While the Lyceum Poll did not test a general election race in Texas between President Donald Trump and the various Democrats, it did find that Texas adults — and the full Lyceum survey includes both those registered and unregistered to vote — are closely divided on Trump, with 48% saying he is doing a good job, and 51% saying that the he is doing a poor job. Last year, 44% of all Texans approved of Trump’s job performance. A large majority of Republicans, at 79%, give the president positive marks, with 45% rating him as doing a very good job and 34% saying he is doing a somewhat good job. Fifty-nine percent of Democrats rate Trump as doing a very poor job as president, with 21% saying he is doing a somewhat poor job.



I'll be interested in seeing the poll's internal numbers, if those are released.
