In Texas...Cain Tops Perry By A Point
It’s coin-flip time among Republican voters in Texas, where former businessman Herman Cain gets 27 percent and their own governor, Rick Perry, 26 percent in a new poll on GOP presidential candidates.
However, Perry fares better than President Obama when those surveyed were asked who would win if the election took place today — with the governor receiving 45 percent and the president, 37 percent.
Another Lone Star State boy, Texas Rep. Ron Paul, finishes third with 12 percent in the poll of registered voters who consider themselves Republican. The University of Texas and the Texas Tribune took the Internet survey of 800 voters between Oct. 19 and 26 and released the results today.
