The End Citizens United (ECU) was formed in 2015 as a response to the appalling Citizens United that was against the FEC Supreme Court verdict of 2010. The organization supports the candidates who maintain their strong endorsements on reforms in the campaign finance efforts. Besides, the ECU also places its full support to candidates who have a reputation of rejecting the dirty money and seeking to encourage measures that directs the flow of this kind of money to Washington D.C. What’s more, End Citizens United’s plan of endorsing several political candidates has already begun where it has supported many candidates including some whose interest is to push out Republican incumbents.

About End Citizens United’s Poll on Beto O’Rourke and Ted Cruz
The recent polls conducted by the End Citizens United revealed that Beto O’Rourke was slightly behind Ted Cruz who is the Republican incumbent. According to the ECU survey, the organization believes that most Democrats would not be surprised by the unexpected results in Texas judging from the 34 seats on a democrat ticket in the past year. The lead by Cruz according to the ECU indicated that his margin was between 45 to 37%, while at the start of the year his campaign showed that he was leading with 18%.
Further, Google’s survey that was conducted at the same time presented Cruz with 14% lead though the latest polls show O’Rourke closing the gap fast. The University of Texas’ survey that was carried out in June showed a difference of 5-points between O’Rourke and Cruz. Moreover, the possible reasons as to why the competition between the two candidates is stiff could be attributed to Ted Cruz’s questionable leadership. The ECU, for instance, reports in its polls that Ted Cruz is his own predicament, which is why the gap is closing fast despite 61% of the voters not knowing about his competitor.
Furthermore, unlike O’Rourke who is not at a favorable position as not so much is known of him, Cruz is widely recognized though his reputation of having his interests attended before those of his constituents is what led to resentments among the people. Comparatively, O’Rourke’s high percentage from most polls is as a result of Cruz’s ratings dropping, hence boosting O’Rourke’s unexpected ratings. Additionally, the ECU’s polls results on the closing gap between the two politicians are as a conclusion of some of these factors combined with other mechanism well.
