Rick breaks 50 yet again... 51 to 42 in latest Rasmussen...

Rasmussen put out another poll showing the race without much movement (link). Excerpt follows...

 Incumbent Republican Rick Perry holds an eight-point lead on Democratic challenger Bill White in the Texas governor’s race with less than two weeks to go until Election Day
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in the Lone Star State finds Perry with 51% support, while White, a former mayor of Houston, attracts 43% of the vote. Two percent (2%) like some other candidate in the contest, and five percent (5%) remain undecided.

Umm.... their graphic sez 51-42, but their write up sez 51-43... which is it? Either way, it is yet another poll showing Rick above 50... during early voting...

Digging further into the crosstabs too...

Rick's favorables... 59 positive, 40 negative, 1 undecided
27% very fav
32% somewhat fav
18% somewhat un
22% very un

Bill White's favorables... 45 positive, 50 negative, 5 undecided

23% very fav
22% somewhat fav
22% somewhat un
28% very un

According to this poll those who are certain of their vote support Rick 56% and Bill White 42%.

Of those certain to vote... slightly different than certain of their vote... of those certain to vote Rick wins 53-38 on the initial impressions, and 54-39 on the leaners.

Among those who have already voted Rick leads Bill White 54-41.

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.
