A new poll conducted by University of Houston Hobby School of Public Affairs finds President Biden with a higher approval rating in the state of Texas than state governor Greg Abbott.
Biden has a 4% approval rating while Abbott has a 39% approval rating.
VP Harris ties Abbott at 39% approval.
Per The Hill “the poll comes as Abbott will be up for reelection in 2022 and could possibly face a challenge from former Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke (Texas) who said last week that he is considering running for the position.
Texas has been a reliably red state for a long time, but Democrats see an increase in support in the state in recent years and have been fighting hard to flip the state.”
