    Perry’s trailing Obama certainly has nothing to do with the President being popular. Only 42% of voters in the state like the job he’s doing to 55% who rate him poorly. Texas is a Republican state to begin with him and Obama has a lot more Democrats (14%) who disapprove of him than GOP voters who approve (6%) and beyond that he’s on negative ground with independents at 46/47.
    Perry, however, is almost as unpopular. Only 43% of voters approve of him with 52% giving him bad marks. Most striking in Perry’s numbers is a horrible 33/62 standing with independents. He also has 21% of Republicans disapproving of him while only 12% of Democrats cross over to give him good marks. Perry may prove to be a strong Presidential candidate but his numbers in Texas are nothing to write home about.

    Can a guy who’s been governor for 10 and a half years really be regarded so poorly by his constituents? Well, the Texas Tribune polled the locals on the GOP presidential field late last month, before Perrymania had taken off. First place was “don’t know” with 14 percent; Palin was next at 12 percent. Rick Perry? Tenth place at just four percent, two points behind … Donald Trump. Hmmmm. (However, 48 percent said they’d vote for the GOP nominee, whoever that may be, versus just 30 percent who said they’d vote for Obama.)

    Texas poll: Obama 47, Perry 45 Hot Air
    Perry sounds like the John Edwards of the GOP. Popular with the masses but unpopular in his home state where the people are more familiar with his record

    Damn I knew I forgot to do something first thing this morning. Read the Gallup polls

    yep, as you grow older as a man the second thing that goes is the mind. Polls will be changing a lot over the next 1 1/2 years and that doesn't bode will for Obama who doesn't have an economic plan to change the direction of those numbers.

    BTW it does seem Perry's popularity is sliding in Texas.

    Hmmm, where do you get your crystal ball? Is there any doubt in your mind that if Perry is the candidate that he won't carry TX?

    Right, because the residents of Texas didn't know who Perry was until he announced.

    Looks like you have your own problems. Is that way liberals are trying to destroy Perry? What are you afraid of?

    Its quite simple...really. The choice between the 2

    Potus - we just need to spend a few more trillion dollars and everything will be hunky dory ( it will be fun watching Obama try and do it) or....

    Perry - They tried to spend like a drunken whore out of this mess and all it got us is a mountain of debt...a cluster****, now it's time to try something else

    Obama's policies has led us to this point and there is no way he escapes blame for it.

    Pave away. Perry is much more beatable than Romney.
