A recent poll by The Texas Lyceum says most Texans don’t know who they would vote for in the next governor’s race; not too surprising since the election is still more than a year away.
Of those who do know, 29% would vote for Greg Abbott and 21% for Wendy Davis. John Reynolds, writing for the Quorum Report, says “the conventional wisdom has it that GOP statewide candidates enter the field with that level of advantage over a Democratic rival.”
So is it here we go again? Is Wendy Davis wasting her time? It might be a little early for a victory dance with 50% still undecided, but the undecided voters typically break along the same lines as those who have already made up their mind.
In addition to the political side of the Lyceum poll, you can see what Texans think about other state and national issues. For example the poll predicts that constitutional amendment to pay for water infrastructure projects will likely pass in November and that Texans would “Pay more in taxes to fix and/or expand existing roads, highways and bridges.” You can read more about the poll on this page of the Lyceum website.
