Cruz won by around three and a half percent. In a large state like Texas, though, that’s a quarter million votes. It wouldn’t surprise me if a small handful of votes changed, but I doubt it was that many.

ETA. A while back I commented about this issue in the O’rourke thread. Flipping a few percentage points is a lot more difficult in Texas due to the absolute number of voters each percent represents.
