A Poll Shows That Some Texans Aren’t Liking The Job Governor Abbott Is Doing
Could it be the way the governor handled the horrible snowstorm of 2021, or our state dragging its feet on fixing the power grid under his stewardship?
Perhaps the signing of the new controversial voting law?
Or maybe it was the way the governor responded to Covid-19?
Whatever the reasons are, his approval ratings have fallen to an all-time low according to a Texas Politics Project Poll.
ABC Austin reports that 41% of the respondents either strongly or somewhat approve of his time in office, while another 41% of respondents disapprove strongly of Abbott.
50% disapproved of him either somewhat or strongly, and the remaining respondents didn’t know or didn’t approve either way.
Of the Democrats, 6% strongly approve Abbott's time in office.
83% disapprove strongly of the job he's done, while 79% of his own party, the Republicans, approved of his job performance.
The governor was also polled on his response to COVID-19, and only 39% of those polled approved of it.
In my opinion, he may have some issues he may have to deal with if he’s looking to be re-elected here in the Lone Star State.
Governor Abbott's not the only one who's seen his numbers slide. Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick is also down in the polls.
The Texas Tribune and the University of Texas have released their quarterly polling of Texas voters. The numbers show that 42% of Texans disapprove of his job performance. That may not seem like such a dangerous number, but it's an 11 point slip since 2018 when he nearly lost re-election.
The Tribune/UT poll showed 52% of voters feel the state is headed in the wrong direction, and that COVID-19 may be the biggest factor in the sentiment.
What do you think of Abbott and Patrick's performance?
