New Poll Is Positive For Governor Perry

With a new poll showing that he has a comfortable lead over Democrat Bill White, Governor Rick Perry is making plans to rally his supporters in Houston this week.

Governor Mitt Romney

The new Rasmussen poll released Monday shows  Perry with a  51% to 38% percent advantage over the former Houston Mayor.http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/elections2/election_2010/election_2010_governor_elections/texas/election_2010_texas_governor

It’s the first time that Perry has polled at 50% or higher, which is good news for an incumbent governor.  It was only one month ago when the same poll had the race at 45%-41%, advantage Perry.

So how did the longest-serving governor of  Texas blow open this strong lead?

For the past several weeks  the Perry campaign has sharply criticized  White for refusing  to release his income tax returns and the ongoing problems with  METRO and the former CEO Frank Wilson.

Mayor Annise Parker’s frank talk about the financial problems facing the city probably haven’t made White look too sharp in the eyes of  voters across the state. 

It’s still early in the race and polls go up and go down, but  if you want to celebrate the latest news with Perry and see former  Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, you’ll need to register in advance for the free event:
