Posted on 05/11/2012 5:44:09 PM PDT by Halfmanhalfamazing
A super PAC supporting Texas Lt. Governor David Dewhurst's Senate campaign has released an internal poll showing him at 57 percent in the GOP race with less than three weeks left until the primary.
The poll shows Dewhurst at 57 percent, followed by Ted Cruz at 16 percent, Tom Leppert at 12 percent, and Craig James at 4 percent. Eleven percent were undecided.
If Dewhurst finishes with over 50 percent of the vote on May 29, he wins the nomination outright. If not, the top two finishers will advance to a July 31 runoff.
The Perception Insight poll of 800 Texas Republican primary voters was conducted for the Texas Conservatives Fund from May 1-7 and carries a margin of error of +/- 3.5 percentage points.

Is Craig James the Texas A&M Craig James?
Part of it is name recognition. I have gotten several packets in the mail, and several phone calls.
Or, was it SMU?
Dewhurst is playing nasty politics.
The more he does it, the more I dig in for Cruz.
Truth is, Cruz is breathing down Dewhurst’s neck.
SMU , he couldn’t get elected dog catcher in Texas , IMHO .
It was SMU - the best pro football team in Texas at that time. Craig James swears he wasn’t paid and didn’t know anyone else was paid either. He is also the father of Adam James - thee weasel that got Mike Leach fired at Texas Tech. Over the last 35 years, Craig James has managed to piss off most of the State of texas. He couldn’t be elected dog catcher in Muleshoe!....red
Bump! I'll vote for Cruz.
Yeah, I wasn’t sure if it was A&M or SMU. But, then I remembered he played with Eric Dickerson, so it had to have been SMU.
Poll was taken May 1-7. Sarah endorsed Cruz on May 10th.
I wonder if he can even get his job back at ESPN ? He no longer has exclusive acsess to coaches and players for interviews like he did before the Mike Leach ordeal . Did you read “ Swing Your Sword “ ? Craig can rot in his own stew .
Guess I need to chill :-)
He couldnt get elected in Lubbock either, his son apparently got stuck in storage, lol :) Red Raiders do not forget that.
I really shouldn’t get started ranting about CJ . Leach will do well at Washington , we wish him well . Oh , and we are Cornhuskers !
What I don’t get is Leppert and James. They’re both liberals.
Two votes for Cruz in this very Conservative Household.
I’ll see your bump, and double it!
I’m for Cruz all the way.
SMU.......that’s who we’re voting for.
Polling 800 GOP Primary voters in TX is NO SAMPLE.
I have the fire in the belly again this year.
Will be in Ft. Worth as a delegate for the TX GOP Convention. Has been a number of years since I was involved. Wife is an alternate.
TX is going to put some real pressure on the National GOP. We don’t like what they have forced on us.
Would love to be a delegate to the national convention, but that is a very long shot.
You shouldn’t pay any attention whatever to these types of polls as they are DESIGNED to influence your opinions not measure them!
I can guarantee anyone the EXACT result they want for a poll before I write the first question or make even one phone call. It is a fairly exact science.
