ANNOUNCEMENT. Greg Abbott, governor of Texas / EFE
With the Texas gubernatorial election to be held next year, Republican figure Greg Abbott looms for re-election; however, a Quinnipiac University poll revealed that the official does not have the broad support he expects.
The context: Abbott has been a strong critic of the administration of President Joe Biden. The Republican has also been rejected for his strong opposition to measures to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, in addition to the treatment of immigrants who cross the southern border.
- According to the poll, support for the Republican official has waned in recent months.
- However, his competition also does not have the approval of the majority of voters in the state.
The data: 51% of those polled rejected the reelection of Governor Abbott, an increase from June, when 48% of the study participants indicated that they would refuse to vote for him.
- 50% also do not consider Democrat Beto O’Rourke a strong candidate for governor of Texas.
- 49% think that actor Matthew McConaughey, who raised the possibility of running in the elections, is not suitable for the position.
