Newscast Media AUSTIN—A poll conducted by Crosswind Media and Public Relations
shows Republican Greg Abbott leading Democrat Wendy Davis by 52.4 percent to 31
percent in the race for Texas governor, with 16.2 percent of voters undecided. The
live telephone survey of 500 likely voters was conducted Oct. 9-12. The margin of
error for the poll was 4.33 percent.

“Greg Abbott has a commanding lead and has successfully motivated the Republican
base,” said Crosswind President Thomas Graham. “Texas remains a red state, at least
among likely voters in non-presidential years, and Wendy Davis does not appear to
have made a dent in that strength.”

Davis is still trailing at 38 percent.
Newscast Media AUSTIN—When Wendy Davis decided to run for governor, she wrote
a biography that seemed inspirational and turned it into the centerpiece of her
campaign. The problem is, her biography was deceptive, and she’s now experiencing
the blowback from former supporters and media practitioners for distorting the truth.
Whether it is discernment or foresight, this journalist wrote piece 48 hours before the
Dallas Morning News story broke exposing her inconsistencies, and in that article I
cautioned the Davis campaign about using “fuzzy math” because I could foresee it

Newscast Media — Governor Rick Perry and former mayor of Houston now face their final stretch in the race for the Texas governorship. Perry, who has never lost an election, is currently ahead in the polls. A new Rasmussen Poll showed Perry leading White, 50 percent to 41 percent. The new poll numbers are more favorable for Perry than a Public Policy Polling survey last month that showed White and Perry tied with 43 percent each.
Bill White, is facing the greatest challenge of his political career since Texans traditionally tend to vote for Republican governors. As a Democrat, since White lacks name recognition, he has to convince Texans that he is a different kind of Democrat willing to embrace bipartisanship, and not play party politics. People have to first know who he is before they decide to switch to a different administration, so as far as name recognition is concerned, Rick Perry has the odds in his favor.
Perry has successfully been able to tie White to Obama policies and says if White were elected, he’d implement Obama policies in an effort to please his fellow Democrats, and those same policies have put America in the position it finds itself in today. Perry’s argument is that since Texas is already thriving, there is no need for radical change in leadership, which might only do more harm than good to the Lonestar state.
