The aforementioned Quinnipiac University poll (see Texas Senate above) also tested Gov. Greg Abbott’s (R) re-election standing and produced even more questionable results. According to the data, the Governor would lead Dallas County Sheriff Lupe Valdez (D), 49-40%, and businessman Andrew White (D), 48-41%. The latter two are facing each other in a May 22nd Democratic run-off for the party nomination.
Again, because of over-sampling Independents who seem to skew Democratic in unusually high percentages in this particular poll, Gov. Abbott’s standing is clearly under-stated. All other data shows him with very comfortable re-election leads and a mammoth advantage in campaign resources.
