I think this is the first one to show Beto ahead.
Hopefully, it is not the last.

Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D) holds a 2-point lead over incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz (R) in a new poll of their Texas Senate race.
The Reuters–Ipsos–University of Virginia Center for Politics poll released on Wednesday found that 47 percent of voters said they favored O’Rourke, while 45 percent said they favored Cruz.
The survey, which was composed among a population of 992 adults, had a credibility interval of 4 percentage points. It was conducted between Sept. 6 and Sept. 14.
The Hill points out that an earlier recent poll had Cruz ahead by 9 points, so make of that what you will.
My opinion is that the needle is definitely moving in O’Reourke’s direction and I will also point out that the kinds of people who are definitely voting for O’Rourke may not be the type of people who like to participate in polls.
In other words, these numbers may be much higher for Beto than these polls indicate.
