Two new polls show Gov. Rick Perry ahead by a significant margin in the Texas gubernatorial race. In Public Policy Polling’s (PPP) last survey of the race this cycle, Perry trumps Democrat Bill White 53-44 percent, and in a poll from five state newspapers, the incumbent leads 49-37 percent.
The PPP poll was conducted between Oct. 26-28 and sampled 568 likely voters, producing a +/- 4.1 percent margin of error. The newspaper poll of 673 likely voters took place between Oct. 22-27 and has a +/- 3.8 percent margin of error.
Perry’s 9- and 12-point leads follow the trend line of results which have recently shown Perry crossing the 50-percent threshold of support and nearing a double-digit lead over his Democratic opponent.
