The Survey was conducted on our website and email subscriber list. 80% of those who took the survey were residents of Texas.
While there is ample room for interpretation, Republicans and “conservatives” in the state are not yet 100% sold on re-electing Sen. Cornyn to a third term.
Top issues in Texas will be Obamacare and Immigration/Border Security. There is ample data supporting this argument since the anti-Obama messages are very strong among Republican activists who see immigration reform as an Obama agenda; and that trend was exacerbated when Sen.

Only 19% of those who completed the survey self-identified as Latinos. And only 5% of respondents were between the ages of 18 to 29 while almost 50% were 65 and older. This is a well known fact that there is a deficit in GOP with young voters.
