How popular is “Beto?”

In driving around Austin, Texas alone, dozens and dozens of “Beto” for Senate yard signs still litter neighborhood. Many of these signs are worn out and the actual metal frames used to hold them up are already rusted out.

If the black and white signs look familiar. Whether it was by design or not, the signs look to be designed from the Black Lives Matter logo.

Aside from the yard signs, it seems as if every 7-10 cars are sporting a “Beto” bumper sticker.

The latest PPP January poll has O’Rourke defeating President Trump in a head-to-head matchup by 6 percentage points.

And as expected, a “Draft Beto for 2020” grassroots campaign has already popped up.
