Poll Shows Most Texans Don’t Want Perry to Run for Reelection
Most voters don’t think Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) should run for reelection, let alone take on another presidential bid, according to a poll released Tuesday by the Democratic-leaning firm PPP.
Fewer than a third of Texas voters said Perry should run for reelection, while 62 percent — including 39 percent of Republican — said he should not. Nearly eight in 10 Texans, including two-thirds of Republicans, said he shouldn’t take another stab at the presidency in 2016.
