Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst might wrap up the Republican U.S. Senate nomination in a little over 2 weeks, that is if you believe a new poll which gives Dewhurst 51 percent of the vote. The Conservative Republicans of Texas polled 400 likely Republican primary voters from April 27-30. Ted Cruz is at 16 percent, Tom Leppert 7 percent, Craig James at 2 percent, and 24 percent said they weren’t sure or refused do take part in the poll.

The Quorum Report points out that the CRT hired Dresner, Wickers, Barber, Sanders to conduct the poll l– a group which lists Dewhurst as a client.

The poll also looked at the 2014 race for lieutenant governor. Susan Combs receives 28 percent of the vote, Dan Patrick 15 percent, Todd Staples 7, and Jerry Patterson 5. However, the majority of people, 39 percent, say they aren’t sure who they are voting for.

The margin of error for the poll is +/- 4.5 percent.
