"Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word,"
Questionable methodology or not, the Lyceum poll released today had one interesting result:
The poll showed Davis, a state senator from Fort Worth, held a “clear lead” among Hispanics, by 36 points, and African Americans, by 80 points, while Abbott, the state attorney general, held a “slight lead” with independent voters, by 6 points, and women, by 2 points.By comparison:
The poll showed that in the lieutenant governor's race, state Sen. Dan Patrick, R-Houston, was ahead of state Sen. Leticia Van de Putte, D-San Antonio, by 14 percentage points, 47 percent to 33 percent. Van de Putte led with African Americans by 64 points and Hispanics by 24 points, but did not perform as well as Davis with either group.In other words, for all of the alleged "harsh rhetoric" surrounding Patrick and the border, he's doing TWELVE POINTS better than Abbott among Hispanics.
