Poll: Ted Cruz Most Popular Politician in Texas

Poll: Ted Cruz Most Popular Politician in Texas

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is the most popular politician in Texas, beating out Governor Rick Perry and Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX).

In addition, according to a new Public Policy Polling poll, Cruz leads the potential GOP 2016 field with 25% among Republican primary voters in Texas. Jeb Bush comes in second with 14%. Mike Huckabee, Rand Paul, and Rick Perry are tied for third with 10% each. Chris Christie and Paul Ryan received 5% each in the poll, and Bobby Jindal and Marco Rubio got 4% each. 

According to the poll, Texans do not want Perry, who unsuccessfully ran for president in 2012, to run in 2016, with 23% thinking he should make a run “compared to 66% who think he should sit it out. Even among GOP primary voters, only 34% think he should make another bid, with 52% dissenting.”

The poll, conducted by the left-leaning organization, surveyed 559 registered voters, including 294 GOP primary voters, from April 10-13. The survey’s margin of error was +/- 4.1 percentage points and +/- 5.7 percentage points for the Republican-only poll.
