After failing to secure the Democratic bid for the presidency, Beto O’Rourke set his sights on becoming the governor of Texas.
That endeavor might be going even worse.
A Quinnipiac University poll released on December 7 indicates that Beto is trailing incumbent republican Greg Abbott by double digits. Fifteen percentage points, to be exact.
Abbott has the clear support of Republicans, 90% of which support him. He’s also handily winning the independent vote, 47% to 37% for Beto.
A majority of all surveyed, 54% overall, indicate that O’Rourke is “too liberal.”
On the other side, 41% of those surveyed think Abbott is “too conservative.”
When polled about which candidate would better handle individual issues, Abbott also won all of those: the economy, gun policy, southern border, election integrity, COVID, and abortion are all issues that Texans would rather have Greg Abbott handle.
Sorry Beto, maybe you can change your name back to Francis and try again someday.
