More bad polling news for HutchisonSubmitted by HonorGod on Thu, 02/11/2010 - 10:34
Collin County was No. 5 in Republican turnout in the 2008 primaries, and it's in the backyard of U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, who has lived in Dallas for the past three decades.
But a new survey of Collin County voters shows Hutchison in a dead heat with activist Debra Medina.
Political consultant Joe Counter did a countywide survey of 300 likely Republican primary voters on Monday on behalf of four local candidates. He threw a horse-race question in about the governor's race. The result:
Gov. Rick Perry 43.3 percent
Hutchison, 22 percent
Medina, 22.7 percent
Undecided 11 percent
Refused to answer 1 percent
