Weeks ago, Texas completed its primary elections. These elections solidified the general election candidates. Governor Greg Abbott (R-TX) will face Democratic challenger Beto O’Rourke in the state’s coming gubernatorial election.
Abbot was winning in all of the polls. But no polling data has been released in over a month. According to American Thinker, this lack of current polling data s not good for O’Rourke.
What’s Really Happening in the Lone Star State?
In Texas, Beto O’Rourke is popular with Democrats, yet wildly unpopular with both Republicans and Independents. O’Rourke’s rhetoric isn’t helping matters either.
Just days ago, O’Rourke got into trouble for posting a photo of himself on social media where he’s wearing a “Don’t Mess with Trans Kids” shirt. As countless O’Rourke critics have mentioned, this won’t help him win over Texans in November.
Already, the Democrat’s anti-gun policies have put him in a hole with Texas voters. Advocacy for childhood transgenderism will definitely ensure that O’Rourke doesn’t win the Texas governor’s mansion.
In a state like Texas, winning support from Democrats is not enough.
To stand any chance of beating Abbott, O’Rourke would need to hold strong support from Independents. But in previous polling of Independent voters, Abbott leads O’Rourke by double digits.
Keeping Texas Great
A huge part of what makes Texas such a great state is the decades of conservative leadership.
Beto O’Rourke wants to change this. In fact, the Texas Democrat is so desperate to get into power that he’s even called himself a supporter of the Second Amendment, despite his clear disdain for the rights afforded by it.
O’Rourke lost the Texas Senate election back in 2018 when he was running against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). His pattern of losing elections looks set to repeat itself in November.
Ultimately, it’s safe to say that Texans and other Americans should expect to see more Abbott vs. O’Rourke polls over the next several months. However, O’Rourke isn’t very likely to appreciate where he stands in these polls.
