You feel this way because you are on a gun forum but look at the numbers in 2018,
Cruz 4,244,204 Beto 4,024,777
Almost half the state vote was for Beto so don't take this lightly. Republicans must come out in force to support the nominee and not get lazy about the vote. Turnout will mean everything.

But if you look at the other races that year, they tell a different story.

In the governor's race, Abbott handily beat his Democrat opponent by over a million votes (4,650,000 vs. 3,546,000), even with a libertarian taking almost 150,000 votes from Abbott (the Senate race had approx. 60,000 for the libertarian). Very different outcome for a Republican in this race.

The Lt Governor's race was a little tighter because a libertarian took almost 200,000 votes away from Dan Patrick, but he still won by over 400,000 votes over the Democrat. Almost the same exact numbers for Ken Paxton in the Attorney General race.

For the lowly Commissioner of the General Land Office race, George P.Bush beat his Democrat opponent by almost a million votes, even with a libertarian candidate getting 250,000 votes.

And yes, turnout was approx. 53-54% that year.

As far as O'Rourke, there were reports in my neck of the woods (and elsewhere) of voting machines changing Cruz votes to O'Rourke ones when a voter checked off the single Republican ticket vote during early voting. Soon the word was to individually vote for each race to avoid this, my wife and I did this. But I can't imagine how many votes were changed in this manner. It is telling they no longer use that option anymore.
