In Texas last month, frontrunner David Dewhurst won the Senate Republican primary by 11 points, but he only won by three on Election Day. He won by a whopping 18 points among early voters. If not for the cushion he built, second-place finisher Ted Cruz might have inched even closer in the overall race, giving him more momentum heading into the runoff against Dewhurst. A strong early voting performance is a testament to good organization, the foundation of any effective campaign. As the saying goes, the only poll that counts is the one on Election Day. But the most important votes are often cast well before the polls open and close.
