TX-24 Poll: If Valenzuela Stresses Term Limits, She’ll Beat Van Duyne
Dallas, TX – According to a new poll conducted by RMG Research, educator Candace Valenzuela will defeat Beth Van Duyne decisively in November, but only if she begins focusing on one key issue: congressional term limits. If Valenzuela does not stress term limits, the race will remain a tossup.
The poll, which was conducted from July 27-August 2nd, found that Valenzuela and Van Duyne are currently tied at 36%, with 27% of voters undecided. But when voters are asked who they would support if Valenzuela were to sign the U.S. Term Limits pledge, which Van Duyne opposes, Valenzuela would jump out to an 8-point lead.
If Valenzuela signs the term limits pledge, her support among Republicans would more than double, from 8% to 19%. Among independents, her share of the vote would rise from 27% to 40%.
According to the poll, 80% of TX-24 voters don’t know what Beth Van Duyne’s position is on congressional term limits. Further, 27% of voters are still undecided, making the race highly competitive.
The survey of 500 registered voters in Texas’ 24th congressional district was conducted online by RMG Research, Inc. from July 27-August 2nd, 2020 using a representative sample to reflect the district’s population of registered voters. It has a margin of error of +/- 4.5 percentage points. RMG Research is owned and operated by Scott Rasmussen.
