Rasmussen poll teases us, only does general election numbers...

Rasmussen has a new poll showing Bill White gaining on both Rick and Kay... and overtaking Medina by a lot (link). Excerpt follows...
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters in the state shows incumbent GOP Governor Rick Perry leading White 47% to 41%. Five percent (5%) of voters prefer some other candidate, and seven percent (7%) are undecided.

At the beginning of this month, Perry led White 48% to 39%.
Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison, who is challenging Perry for the Republican nomination, now posts a 47% to 38% lead over White. Three weeks ago, she had a 49% to 36% lead. Given this match-up, eight percent (8%) like another candidate, and seven percent (7%) are undecided.

These findings mark little change from January just after White announced his candidacy for the race.

Another GOP hopeful, Tea Party activist Debra Medina, has stumbled following a gaffe on the Glenn Beck show. In the previous survey, she had a three-point advantage over White. Now Medina trails the Democrat by 10 points, 47% to 37%.

Republicans pick their nominee in a primary next Tuesday. Rasmussen Reports will release new numbers on the Texas GOP Primary tomorrow morning.
Rick had been up by 9 and is now up by 6 over White... a loss of 3. Kay had been up by 13 and is now up by 9... a loss of 4. Medina lost 13 to fall behind by 10. The result no doubt of a bruising primary battle and Medina's 9/11 truther and other conspiratorial revelations.

Tomorrow's primary numbers will be interesting... the last time it was Rick 44, Kay 29, and Medina 16. From the looks of it Medina has fallen in the general election match up so it remains to be seen how much Kay and Rick have picked up in the primary from fleeing Medina peeps who were horrified to learn she had questions about whether the government did 9/11 and gave other strange answers related to the Austin suicide plane crasher. There were 11% undecided last time. Will there be more or less undecided this time? Maybe more as Medina's support has dwindled but not committed to Rick or Kay yet...

I guess we will know tomorrow morning won't we...

  1. I suspect that the numbers will be much higher for Rick tomorrow.
    Kay might get a few and Medina will be wayyy low, but I think Perry will be well above 50% where he should be!


Hey now, campaign characters. Be nice. I know a lot of you on both sides, so I don't want any overly foul language, personal attacks on anyone other than the candidates themselves, or other party fouls. I will moderate the heck out of you if you start breaking the bounds of civility.
