He will not win. He is too controversial to win.
If you are counting on college students to win, you never win. Simple.
After all the campaigns I've worked on, you learn that college students are unreliable and usually vote in the major parties.
Further more, using a facebook "poll" as any real political guidance is silly....
The real polls show him at minimum 10 pts, down--that is losing. I am willing to bet his real loss is by much more than that. The polls in TX are going to widen, as the money will be spent by the repubs/dems and he will fall into the shadow.
