Description

"Attorney General Greg Abbott is holding a steady double-digit lead over state Sen. Wendy Davis in the governor's race, according to a poll conducted Thursday through Sunday by Public Policy Polling, a Democratic-leaning polling firm based in North Carolina. The survey found that Abbott was leading Davis 51 to 37 percent, just about the same as Abbott's 50-35 lead when they last polled in November. Most troubling for the Davis campaign is that nearly half the electorate has an unfavorable view of the Fort Worth Democrat, who is 12 points better known than Abbott. In the first flush of national celebrity right after her Senate filibuster of abortion legislation in June, a Public Policy Polling survey found Davis had a 39 percent favorable rating, compared to 29 percent who viewed her unfavorably. That has now flipped and only 33 percent view her in a positive light, while 47 percent hold a negative view of her."* The Young Turks hosts Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparian and Ben Mankiewicz break it down. *Read more here from Jonathan Tilove / Austin American-Statesman: http://www.statesman.com/news/news/state-regional-govt-politics/greg-abbott-holds-double-digit-lead-over-wendy-dav/nfZ4w/
