Rick Perry would retain his governorship if the election were today, a new survey from Rasmussen Reports showed Monday.
The media polling company pegged the incumbent taking 49 percent of the vote with lead competitor and Houston Mayor Bill White trailing at 41 percent of the electorate. Another 3 percent preferred some other candidate and 7 percent were undecided.

Take Ramussen with a huge grain of salt they have a history of Republican bias. For instance at the low point of Bush popularity when all the other polls had him in the 20's. Ramussen consistently was 10% above all the other pollls. There simply is no accounting for that.

That wouldn't be a surprise for me given the political climate, and Texas is the best state for job creation this year (169,000 jobs created) so I guess texans are grateful to him.I think he'll be reelected.

I live in Texas and I hate his guts (as a politician). Most people I talk to about him do too.

As far as social issues go, he is as closed minded as they come.

EWWW! Gov. Goodhair............ YUCK!
He can be put on the first train out of the state for all I'm concerned. I have never voted for him and plan on NEVER casting a vote for him. Only people I know that will vote for him are those that vote straight party. Thankfully, that is not too many. whew........

I've seen more Bill White signs and bumper stickers than Rick Perry promotions, and that's saying something coming from Lubbock.

Rick is still better than Bill on guns, so I guess I will cast my vote based on that. Well that and the fact that no one has really made a good case about why Bill White would be any better in any way really.

Texas created many jobs because RP economic policies are great, without him Texas would suffer as many other states in the country.It's really mad here on CD...When a politician is bad you must get rid of him, but when he's good (RP is good on economy and it's the most important, it's shameful to be close-minded like him at this time it's not essential) you must thank him. He leads in polls, and it's pretty normal

Youre talking about a man who tried to make (and keep) homosexuality ILLEGAL in Texas. It took the supreme court to get rid of the Texas Sodomy law. We are also talking about a man who public stated that if you arent a Christian, you go straight to hell. Perry also does not believe in Global Warming.

I cannot vote for someone who is the exact opposite of my social beliefs. Bill White would do just as good, if not better with the economy.
