Two new polls indicate Republican U.S. Senator John Cornyn is still leading his Democratic challenger M.J. Hegar ahead of the November election. The Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday shows three-term incumbent Cornyn leads Hegar by 50% to 42% among likely voters in Texas. The New York Times-Sienna College poll has Cornyn ahead 43% to 37%. Both polls also show President Donald Trump leading the Democratic candidate Joe Biden in Texas.
