Is Beto stuck in neutral? New poll shows Abbott leading by 7 points.
Gov. Greg Abbott holds a 7-point lead over Democratic rival Beto O’Rourke according to the latest poll in the closely watched and highly contentious race for Texas governor. The survey by The Dallas Morning News and the University of Texas at Tyler found that the margin is unchanged since the last time the organizations polled Texans on their preference for governor, in May.
Of the 1,384 registered voters who participated in the poll Aug 1-7, 46% said they would vote for Abbott while 39% said they would vote for O’Rourke.
