Poll: Texas Gov. Abbott and Beto O’Rourke Tied

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and expected Democrat challenger Beto O’Rourke are virtually tied a year before they could meet in a possible gubernatorial race, according to a new poll conducted by the Texas Hispanic Policy Foundation (TxHPF).

The poll shows Republican Abbott leading O’Rourke, 44% to 43% among those who voted last year. Ten percent are unsure of whom they would support and 3% back minor party candidates.

O’Rourke, a former Congressman, has not formally announced his candidacy for governor but is widely expected to do so.

If actor Matthew McConaughey decides to run as an independent candidate, as has been speculated, the poll shows the race would be virtually unchanged.
