ABBOTT AHEAD: Texas Governor Pulls Away from Beto in Latest Polling

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.23.22

Immigration takes center stage.

According to a new Spectrum News/Siena College poll, Texas Governor Greg Abbott is widening his lead against Democratic gubernatorial challenger Beto O’Rourke. The big issue? The border crisis.

From The Houston Chronicle:

The Spectrum News/Siena College poll showed Abbott with a 50-43 lead over O’Rourke, and other statewide candidates had similar gaps: Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick was up 49-40 over Democrat Mike Collier, and Attorney General Ken Paxton had a 47-42 lead over Democrat Rochelle Garza.

The poll also found that Texas voters consider immigration a more important issue than abortion. About 33 percent of respondents said immigration was their first- or second-highest concern ahead of the midterms, while 22 percent said the same for abortion.

More than 2 million migrant encounters have been logged at the southern border since October 2021. Texas Governor Greg Abbott continues to bus illegal migrants from the southern border to sanctuary cities in an effort to raise awareness of the immigration crisis.

Abbott recently sent a letter to the Biden Administration asking that drug cartels be labeled as terrorists.
