Rick tops 50% ... among Cougars...

The University of Houston did a poll of its students... Rick is way ahead, and Medina has crashed and burned (link). Excerpt follows...

A poll conducted by The Daily Cougar last week revealed that 85.99 percent of UH students likely voting in the Democratic primary favor White to be his party’s nominee in the Nov. 2 general election. Meanwhile, 52.78 percent of likely Republican student voters support Perry.

White’s opponent, local businessman Farouk Shami, garnered the endorsement of 12.56 percent of UH Democrats, while 1.45 percent indicated they were undecided between the two.

Among Republicans, U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison earned the support of 36.11 percent of those polled. Tea Party activist Debra Medina received the backing of 8.33 percent. About 2.8 percent of Republicans said they are undecided, but will likely vote in that primary.

I have no idea how scientific this poll is, and it is obviously a very limited and narrow group of people geographically and age wise but those percentages are looking pretty close to what the state wide numbers end up being... it is hard for me to fathom how more than 15% of Republicans could vote for Medina... or how more than 1/3 of Republicans could vote for Kay...

  1. Seems like a fubar poll given UH student newspaper endorsed Medina:


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.
