Abbott Extends Lead Against O’Rourke

It would appear as though the shipping of illegals off to sanctuary cities is having a positive impact on Texas Governor Abbott's campaign.

Abbott has consistently been winning, but his lead was down to about five percent.

With his busing program now bringing national attention to the challenges at the border, he is creating some distance between himself and O'Rourke in the upcoming election.

Big Moves

O'Rourke had climbed within four or five points of Abbott in some polls.

That has changed drastically since the nationwide attention for the busing program.

In the latest Dallas Morning News poll, which clearly leans left, Abbott is now ahead 47 to 38 percent.

This is one of Abbott's largest leads since the primary election and could not come at a worse time for O'Rourke.

In addition to the busing program, Abbott has started to go after O'Rourke pretty hard in TV campaign ads.

Negative always seems to work better, and, together, this is all paying off for him.

Poll Director Mark Owens stated, "A clear change in the election is that the Abbott campaign started advertising and they went negative, while being the only campaign on the air.

"Registered voters who say they saw the advertisements supported Gov. Abbott 23% more often."

Abbott also now has a 52 percent approval on the border, which has increased considerably since the busing program started.

A whopping 54 percent of Texans approve of the program.

O'Rourke is still doing well with fundraising, but a significant portion of his money comes from sources outside the state.

I can tell you after seeing Beto's appearances in the south, the man is not well-liked outside of his home district.

Democrats may turn Texas at some point, but it will not happen with Beto.
