There was also a poll by Democrats showing Rick up by 9% over Bill White (link). Then there is that Texas Democratic Trust poll that had Rick up by 4... yeah right (link). There have also been polls showing Rick up by 13 in Rasmussen (link), 16 in Texas Research (link), 13 in the liberal Democrat Maslin poll (link).
A lot of polls... all pointing to one basic conclusion... Rick is up by an average of 10.67 in the polls that have come out in the past week.
Bill White has spent more than a million dollars on television commercials (link), and he has not made even a slight dent.
