Yeah, we all know Donald Trump sucks.  Now he is even starting to become a liability for his own party.

A recently released poll shows Rep. Joaquin Castro leading Senator Ted Cruz in Texas.  Yes, Texas the state where you grow up playing football, going to church on Sunday, and voting Republican.  Trump is the Titanic, and he is slowly sinking his fellow Republicans approval with voters.

The Republicans could be in for a struggle in 2018, as they have to defend more moderate districts inside what were once considered stronghold states.  The Hill weighs in with some notes:

Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-Texas) edges out Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) in a potential 2018 Senate matchup, a new poll shows.

According to the statewide poll numbers released Wednesday by Texas Lyceum, Castro gets 35 percent support of Texas adults in the potential matchup, while Cruz gets 31 percent.

And in a matchup between Cruz and Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas), the two are tied at 30 percent.

The poll also found President Trump underwater in job approval, with 54 percent disapproving to 42 percent who approve.

Maybe the voters of Texas are starting to realize the grave mistake they made by electing Trump to the presidency.  Or maybe they realize just how crazy Cruz sounded in the presidential primaries with his talks of abolishing the Federal Reserve and Department of Education.  Either way, it looks like the tide is starting to turn on these alt right nut jobs.
