A new poll from Emerson College places incumbent Republican senator and mutated blob fish Ted Cruz just one point ahead of his Democratic challenger, Congressman Beto O’Rourke, setting them at a statistical tie. It’s just one poll, but damn I hope it makes Ted Cruz feel like shit!

The Hill reports that the survey puts Cruz at 38 percent and O’Rourke at 37 percent; 21 percent are undecided and four percent plan to vote for a different candidate entirely.

O’Rourke leads the pack in the 18-34 and 35-54 age brackets, while Cruz is predictably popular with the olds; voters 55-74 and 75 and older.

Real Clear Politics’ current tally of all poll averages puts Cruz with a 5.5 point advantage over O’Rourke, but still, this is Texas, and the momentum behind O’Rourke’s campaign has been enough to get Democratic voters amped.
