Two new polls out of Texas show Republican candidate Donald Trump holding a narrow lead in the Lone Star State.
That lack of enthusiasm for the Republican candidate could be Clinton's secret weapon in the battle to clinch Texas. She also has strong support among black voters in Texas and is holding her own with the state's large Hispanic population, the poll found. Pair that with Trump-induced voter apathy, and it's possible — if mostly improbable — that the Lone Star State swings blue.
"Texas is not yet a toss-up state, but Hillary is giving Trump a run for his money," Crosswind CEO Thomas Graham, told the Austin American-Statesman. FiveThirtyEight gives her just a 14.7% chance of winning the state.
In other words, it's unlikely that Clinton will win Texas and its 38 electoral college votes. But Trump could win the state by the lowest margin in recent history.
