    Poll: GOP's Greg Abbott Soars over Wendy Davis in TX Governor Race

    Poll: GOP's Greg Abbott Soars over Wendy Davis in TX Governor Race



    by Robert Wilde 24 Feb 2014 761 post a comment

    Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott has opened up a sizable lead over State Senator Wendy Davis in the race for governor of Texas.

    After what looks to be easy primary wins in March for the leading gubernatorial candidates, according to the latest University of Texas/Texas Tribune Poll, Republican Abbott will start the general election race with an 11-point lead (47%-36%) over Democrat Davis.
    Greg Abbott's widening lead over Davis is not surprising. Significantly, it has been over two decades since a Democrat has won an election for a statewide office in Texas. Abbott's 11 point lead demonstrates his mounting support. Back in October, he led the State Senator by just six percent. Moreover, Davis’ flip flopping on such key issues as abortion and gun control, and her dishonesty in telling her own biography, have not helped her popularity.
    Abbott was twice elected to the Texas Supreme Court, where he served with distinction, and he was named "Jurist of the Year" by the Texas Review of Law and Politics and Appellate Specialists. In 2005, Attorney General Abbott appeared before the United States Supreme Court, where he successfully defended the constitutionality of exhibiting the Ten Commandments at the Texas Capitol grounds.
    The Attorney General was re-elected as the fiftieth Attorney General of Texas in 2010. He attended the University of Texas and received his law degree from Vanderbilt University.

    Ouch: Wendy Davis Pummeled in South Texas Polls By Opponent Who Raised $0

    Cortney O'Brien | Mar 05, 2014



    Texas Democrats may have voted Wendy Davis as their nominee for governor in Tuesday's primary, but it wasn’t pretty.
    Aaron Pena, a former member of the Texas House of Representative, shared a few of the embarrassing results:

    Tonight's embarrassing losses by Wendy Davis in South Texas confirms my observations about the Democratic party's neglect of the region.

    To the east of Hidalgo County, Wendy Davis also lost Willacy County 61% to 39%. Little support for Davis in the Valley. #txlege

    Just how little? Try $900.
    This fall, reports showed Davis had raised “less than $700 from the four largest cities in the Rio Grande Valley.”
    Even more amusingly, Davis's opponent claimed $0 in contributions on his campaign finance report in January. Yet, he still came out on top.

    Wendy Davis couldn't crack 80% against a single primary opponent who raised $0. She lost more than two-dozen counties.

    Ouch.
    Question: How does Battleground Texas think they’re going to “Turn Texas Blue” by neglecting one of the most important regions in the state?
    It’s perhaps no surprise South Texans rallied behind Ray Madrigal, a pro-life Democrat, instead of someone who became famous for this.
