UT/TT Poll: Republican Greg Abbott Has 11 Point Lead Over Democrat Wendy Davis


Liberal Democrats, Don’t Mess With Texas …

According to a recent UT/TT poll, Republican candidate Greg Abbott has a large lead over Democrat Wendy Davis for the race for the Texas governor. Abbott widened his lead in the Texas gubernatorial race to 11 point over Davis; however, look for this lead to get much higher as it appears from polling data that the GOP is much more energized to vote in Texas than do Democrats. Also, the more that Texans learn of Davis’ extreme positions, the more they will run away.


After what are shaping up to be easy primary wins in March for the leading gubernatorial candidates, Republican Greg Abbott starts the general election race for governor with an 11-point lead over Democrat Wendy Davis, according to the latest University of Texas/Texas Tribune Poll.

Meanwhile, several statewide races on the Republican primary ballot — for lieutenant governor, attorney general and comptroller — appear headed for May runoffs. None of the leaders in those races looks close to the 50 percent support they would need to win next month’s primary outright.

      Abbott will end up winning by 20 points.

      Texas will not elect a Democrat as Governor or Senator again in any of our lifetimes, that is 100% certain.

      The demographics may change, but Obameecare means Democrats will lose for decades.

      the one and only thing Davis has going for her is her looks. which is probably what got her pregnant
      as a teenager. i’m afraid looks are not enough to gain sympathy for your communist comrades Wendy. sorry

      Considering that the majority of the poll respondents were from the large metro areas, the actual difference state wide is likely 20 to 25 points.

      Wendy is not the type of person Texans will have as their governor. Her whole life has been taking advantage of others and like Fauxahuntas in Mass., she tells tall tales about her life.

      I’m concerned. Greg Abbott should be farther ahead than that considering all the missteps Davis has made recently. BTW Dave: Davis’ looks are due to her extensive plastic surgery (wonder if her ex had to pay for that too).
