She is the incumbent, but if an early poll is an accurate indication, Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo will have a fight on her hands to stay in office.

The Hobby School of Public Affairs at the University of Houston released a poll that shows the race in a virtual dead heat with Judge Hidalgo holding a one percentage point lead over political newcomer Alexandra del Moral Mealer.

“When you get to results that close, for instance, Hidalgo is up by one percent with likely voters,” said Mark Jones, Ph.D., Political Science Fellow at the Baker Institute for Public Policy at Rice University and who also is a partner in the Hobby School findings.

“But if we go to the most likely voters it flips and Del Moral Mealer is up by a little bit. When you get results like that, all you can say is it’s too close to call,” he said.

Upon closer analysis, the poll shows where each candidate’s strengths and weaknesses may be especially as the poll is looked at along racial lines.

“What we have with White voters by a two to one margin support del Moral Mealer, whereas with Black voters by a five to one margin they support Hidalgo.” Jones said.

“Latino voters are split down the middle with Del Moral Mealer having a slight advantage but once you put in the margin of error it’s pretty much a tie there,” said Jones.
