With A Year Left, Most Texans Still Undecided On Perry's Replacement
Updated: Wednesday, October 2 2013, 11:12 AM CDT
With a year left to burn before Texans choose a replacement for longtime Gov. Rick Perry, a majority in the Lone Star State are still unsure of who they'll pick.
That's according to new data from the Texas Lyceum's annual statewide poll.
The non-profit began releasing its latest sweeping survey in daily segments yesterday.
On day two, it revealed that 50 percent of registered voters in Texas have perhaps prudently -- not yet committed to a gubernatorial candidate 13 months out from the election.
However, if the race were held today, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott would win a plurality of votes with 29 percent of respondents picking the Republican.
Coming in at second with 21 percent is State Sen. Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) who hasn't even officially entered the race yet, though she's expected to formally announce her bid in Haltom City tomorrow.
The Lyceum poll was conducted from Sept. 6th through the 20th.
In general, the findings show Republicans still holding a commanding lead over Democrats in 2014 match-ups. 29 percent of poll respondents chose a generic Republican candidate for Congress compared to 23 percent for a Democratic candidate.
In a generic race for the Texas Legislature, 23 percent favored a Republican over 19 percent for the Democrat.
Outside of the horse racing, the poll found Texans are sunny about the state's economy but dour when considering the national economy. 62 percent of respondents believe Texas is doing better than the rest of the country while just under a third feel the national economy has improved over the last year.
The survey also had good news for the state's elected leaders. 56 percent of registered voters express approval of the job Gov. Perry is doing, 50 percent give President Obama the thumbs-up, and nearly 60 percent say the Legislature is on the right track.
