As Texas experiences an influx of newly registered voters, a new poll shows Republicans leading by nearly 20 percent among those new registrants.

Since November of 2020, more than 1.1 million people have registered to vote in Texas.

A poll performed by CWS Research and commissioned by the Defend Texas Liberty PAC shows 59 percent of those newly registered intend to vote Republican in the fall, with 41 percent leaning Democrat.

When asked about current issues, the results appear to be even brighter for Texas Republicans.

Sixty-two percent of new registered voters believe puberty blockers should be banned for minors in Texas, 65 percent believe we should ban taxpayer subsidies for illegals, and 71 percent believe that employers should not have the right to fire an employee based on their vaccine status.

“It’s clear that new registered voters are ready to help us keep Texas red and support a bold conservative cultural agenda in 2023,” said Jonathan Stickland, the founder of the Defend Texas Liberty PAC. “Texas Republicans should force Democrats to justify their radical positions on sexualizing our children and forcing Texans to get vaccinated or get fired.”
