Beto O’Rourke down by 2 points against Texas Governor Greg Abbott in new poll

Beto O’Rourke is Within Striking Distance of overtaking Texas Governor Greg Abbott in a new poll on the Texas Governor election.

New poll results show it could be a tight race between incumbent Republican Gov. Greg Abbott and Democratic challenger Beto O’Rourke.

According to a Texas Lyceum poll, voters are nearly evenly split between Abbott and O’Rourke with 42% choosing Abbott and 40% picking O’Rourke.

18% were undecided or said they’d support someone else.

“Given that this result originated from a sample of Texas adults, it should be unsurprising to find the pool of registered voters producing this result more diverse than the likely electorate. Self-identified registered voters from among the adult sample produced a potential electorate made up of 47% of white respondents when exit polling data in 2020, 2018, and 2016 found the electorate to be at least 56% white. Despite this, the result continues to find Abbott leading his Democratic challenger, at this, admittedly, very early stage in the contest,” The Texas Lyceum said in a statement about the poll.

  1. It’s about time someone like Beto O’Rourke takes on that moron Abbott and takes him down. When what was going on in Uvalde if they told Abbott they were distributing information about abortions he would have made the police go in so fast it would have made your head swim. Or he would have been the 1st one through the door. Next get rid of Ted moron Cruz.
