Statewide Texas Poll: Trump, Cruz, Abbott Remain Strong While Democrats Struggle on the Top Issues; Voters Support E-Verify for All Businesses, Reject Woke Corporate Activism

WASHINGTON, D.C. (April 11, 2024) – Cygnal, the nation's fastest growing and most accurate private polling firm, released the following statewide poll of (conducted Apr. 4-6) of 1,000 likely general election voters in Texas.  “Despite some national narratives about Texas turning blue, this latest survey shows good news for Republicans. Governor Abbott’s leadership in the state has helped to create a favorable political environment for Republicans up and down the ballot this November, while President Biden is a millstone around the neck of Texas Democrats,” said Cygnal Pollster John Rogers. “Democrats are losing ground with critical voting groups on major issues like securing the border—which has now become the top political issue for Texas voters both in state and federal elections. This is one among many reasons why Trump is leading statewide by nine points and by five points in the Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston media markets. Couple that with Allred’s slow start and poor name ID in the Senate race and it’s easy to see how Republicans remain well-positioned to keep Texas red.”

National Poll: Voters Support a Detain-and-Deport Policy as Illegal Immigration Surges to a Top Concern 

WASHINGTON, D.C. (February 15, 2024) – Cygnal, the nation's fastest growing and most accurate private polling firm, released this national poll (conducted Feb. 6-8) of general election voters.  “Illegal immigration can no longer be treated as a secondary or even a tertiary issue on the campaign trail,” said Pollster and Director of Client Strategy, Chris Lane. “Not only are voters bombarded with media coverage on the impacts of the border crisis, but they’re also experiencing it in their communities, and that gives credence to the narrative that every town is a border town. This confluence works in the Republicans’ favor because 48% of voters now say they trust the Republican Party more to address our nation’s border security, including a 2:1 margin of Independents.”

WASHINGTON, D.C. (January 24, 2024) – Cygnal, the nation's fastest growing and most accurate private polling firm, released the following poll (conducted Jan. 16-18) of America’s toughest battleground congressional districts in the 2024 general election.  “What really stands out in this poll is the impact Donald Trump has on voter propensity in these battleground districts,” said Vice President of Polling, Brock McCleary. “Too much emphasis is put on scenarios where Trump is not the Republican nominee, but our battleground data shows Trump’s absence on the ballot would likely result in lower turnout. In other words, Republicans have more to lose than gain without Trump on the ballot.”

Poll: 65% Willing to Deport Illegal Immigrants; 64% Want to Militarize the Border as Immigration Surges as Top Priority for Congress 

WASHINGTON, D.C. (January 16, 2024) – Cygnal, the nation's fastest growing and most accurate private polling firm, released a new national poll (conducted Jan. 11-12) on an array of trending issues in the 2024 general election.  “This new national data shows just how voters view an unsecure border and the subsequent illegal immigration as a crisis, one that they believe is not being addressed by the Biden Administration,” said Cygnal President Brent Buchanan. “Republican candidates at all levels would be wise to tap into this sentiment and contrast themselves with a sheepish bench of Democrats who have largely let the issue fester to a boiling point no locality can afford to further ignore because it’s impacting voters day-to-day lives. This is also likely why our data shows huge support for mass deportations and the militarization of the Southern border.”

Kennedy wins more Democrats and left-leaning Independents than he does Republicans. Add Manchin to the mix and the race moves back to a tie.”
