Skip to comments.Poll: Cornyn crushing Stockman in Texas (Cornyn at 50%, but when compared to similar poll in 2011..)
Posted on 12/14/2013 3:23:41 AM PST by cotton1706
Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) has a huge lead over Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas), his newly announced primary foe, according to a new survey conducted by GOP pollster Wilson Perkins Allen Research.
Cornyn leads Stockman by 50 percent to 6 percent, according to the poll. Other candidates pull a combined 5 percent; 39 percent remain undecided.
Stockman was a surprise entrant in the race earlier this week and needs to hold Cornyn to less than 50 percent of the vote to force a runoff in the early March primary. He has little funding for his campaign and as the poll shows isn't well-known across the state. Cornyn has $7 million in the bank and looks like he'll be in strong shape. Pollster Chris Perkins, who isn't working for either candidate, added the poll to a corporate survey he was conducting in the state. His clients include Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott (R), who's running for governor.
"With less than three months until the Republican Primary for United States Senate, John Cornyn is in a very strong position," he says in a poll memo, obtained by The Hill.
The live-called poll of 762 likely Republican primary voters was conducted from Dec. 10-12 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.6 percentage points.

All we need to do is keep Cornyn under 50% in the primary!
Cornyn has been blasting ads since October, too. Stockman just threw his name in the ring a couple days ago.
Cornrow is going down.
Stockman is a joke. Check out his asset to debt ratio. This guy owes so much money, nobody will give him a dime.
Yep, “39 percent remain undecided”
That is a lot for an incumbent.
39 + 5 +6 = 50%
Sounds pretty close to me.
Many senators start their senate run very poor and steal their way to riches, look at LBJ, the klintoons, and alan grayson is such a thief, he just got scammed out of $12 MILLION.
Well then, its time to start anteing up! Unless you are plugging for Cornyn.
That's why most of them get into politics.
The new American Dream, Become a politician, get rich.
Can’t say I’ve ever seen a more meaningless poll.
> Cant say Ive ever seen a more meaningless poll.
Sure you have - employment numbers, healthcare, Obama’s ratings and Obamacare website polls all the time -
Then go with Dwayne Stovall 'cause Cornyn/s got to go.
But Cornyn keeps telling us how conservative he is.
As a Texas voter, I’ll remember how he stabbed Ted Cruz in the back when I go to vote.
| John Cornyn claims to be the 2nd most conservative member of the Senate.
Yet, as Chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee he
hand-selected these "Republican" candidates:
and hid behind a meaningless vote later.
“Cant say Ive ever seen a more meaningless poll.”
They institute these polls to show the overwhelming strength of the incumbent, and to scare off any challengers. But that’s why I posted a similar poll from 2011, to show how meaningless it is, for the eventual winner of the senate seat, Ted Cruz, was at that time, an unknown and way down on the list. And the undecided vote was pretty close.
The primary’s in three months, and all we have to do is keep Cornyn under 50%. Then the runoff will be national news, with the establishment swinging in to protect Cornyn, and the rest of us rooting for the other guy, whoever that ends up being.
All people know is that Cornball is “good”; the way their TN cousins think of Lamar!
Things that make you go > Hmmmmm
1) The primary is early March.
2)Arpaio forecasts prosecutions before March, the prosecutions arising from newly uncovered evidence.
3)Some Texas Law enforcement person just resigned as she did not know her Birth Certificate was a fake.
4)Stockman was an early supporter of the CCP, and prolly has a good level on who is for or agin the CCP
I am enjoying this Christmas season!!!!
and do not forget the filthy rich Joe Biden
Stovall is impressive from his website; he might be a better choice than Stockman.
