President Donald Trump has chipped away at Joe Biden's lead in the classically red state of Texas, new polling shows.
A Dallas Morning News poll that was released Sunday shows that Biden's 5-point lead in the Lone Star State is now a 2-point deficit among likely voters.
Among that group, 48 per cent support Trump, while 46 per cent back Biden, with a margin of error of plus-or-minus 3.22 per cent.
President Donald Trump is now ahead of Democrat Joe Biden among likely voters in Texas, after Biden had a 5-point lead in July. Now Trump is beating Biden by 2 points, which is within the survey's margin of error
Among registered Texas voters, Biden (pictured departing Delaware Monday) is ahead by 1 point, which is also within the poll's margin of error. A Democrat hasn't won the state of Texas since Jimmy Carter won over President Gerald Ford in 1976
