According to a new University of Texas/Texas Tribune Poll, Bernie has doubled his support among Democratic voters in the Lone Star State and is now leading the Democratic field heading into the state’s presidential primary.

The campaign has recently opened five offices across the Lone Star State and launched a $5.5 million ad campaign across Texas and other Super Tuesday states.
