    Poll: Wendy Davis has cratered

    Poll: Wendy Davis has cratered

    The media-made Wendy Davis mountain turns out only to be a molehill.

    Wendy Davis’ bizarre and distasteful attacks on Greg Abbott are working like a charm. For Abbott.

    Davis already was in a deep hole according to polls prior to the Wheelchair Attack ad.  Holding a rally with people in wheelchairs to defend the ad just compounded the problem.

    That hole has become a crater, UT/TT Poll: Abbott Holds Commanding Lead Over Davis:

    Republican Greg Abbott has a 16-point lead over Democrat Wendy Davis in the closing days of this year’s general election for governor, according to the latest University of Texas/Texas Tribune Poll.

    Abbott has the support of 54 percent of likely voters to Davis’ 38 percent. Libertarian Kathie Glass has the support of 6 percent, and the Green Party’s Brandon Parmer got 2 percent.

    “The drama of the outcome is not who wins, but what the margin will be,” said Jim Henson, co-director of the poll and head of the Texas Politics Project at the University of Texas at Austin. “Wendy Davis has not led in a single poll in this race.”

    Among men, Abbott holds a 61-32 lead in this survey. And he leads by 2 percentage points — 48 to 46 — among women.

    Davis has managed to drive up Abbott’s negatives, but it doesn’t seem to help her:

    The media made a mountain out of Wendy Davis’ molehill of accomplishments.  Now that mountain has cratered.

    I know we’ll never get away from at least some people being die-hard liberals who will never wake up, but almost 40% in Texas? Even when Abbott wins I’ll be a little depressed that it wasn’t by a 70-30 margin.

    She is an appalling candidate and it seems an appalling person. A liar, a user of her husband to pay her tuition before divorcing him, an adulterer, and a woman who abandoned her daughter.
