Poll shows race between Clinton, Trump tight in Texas

TEXAS - If the United States presidential election were held today, poll results from the Texas Lyceum show that the race would be tight between GOP nominee Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

That's according to a poll that was released Thursday from the nonprofit. Go here to read the complete results.

Among likely voters, Clinton trails behind Trump by seven points while Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson polls at 9 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein polls at 3 percent. Trump polled at 39 percent while Clinton polled at 32 percent.

A "likely voter" was defined by the Texas Lyceum as a respondent who is registered, who has voted in every or almost every election and who is extremely or somewhat interested in politics.

Among registered voters, Trump leads Clinton by just one point in the four-way race. She also holds a surprising four-point lead over Trump in a two-way trial ballot. 

The poll, which was conducted Sept. 1 through Sept. 11 with 1,000 Texans, covered a variety of topics that included immigration, voter ID, Medicaid and ride-hailing regulation. Those polled believe immigration is the number one issue facing the state and the economy the number one issue facing the nation. The poll revealed that a majority of Texans oppose Trump's proposal to build a wall along to the U.S. and Mexico border.
