The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the Lone Star State finds Perry with 48% of the vote, while White has 42% support. Three percent (3%) favor another candidate in the race, and six percent (6%) are undecided.
Last month, Perry held a 49% to 41% lead. The new numbers move the race from Solid GOP to Leans GOP in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Gubernatorial Scorecard.
Perry has held a small lead over White in surveys since February, with support ranging from 47% to 51%. White, a former mayor of Houston, has picked up 38% to 44% of the vote in those same surveys.
6 point lead is consistent with some other polls. Extrapolate out the undecided vote, and Rick has over 50%, White is low to mid 40s, and Glass and Shafto get a few percent total.
My prediction has been and remains 10 points.
