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.

I’m always happy to know that a freeper will be a delegate to this convention-—that’s one fewer RINOs who will be there—LOL!
What’s going on is that Texas conservatives are educated and know that Lt. Governor Dewhurst is and always has been a conservative.
This is not Mourdock against Lugar.
Sure glad I'm not anywhere close to you so the lightening won't get me as well!
David Dewhurst is the Senate version of Joe Strauss! Nothing more or less than that!
No one has polled my household; we are voting Cruz and I am encouraging my extended family to vote Cruz

Amen to the statement about Dewhurst. And B.S. to the poll results. Everyone in our family and most people I know are voting for Cruz. We finally have a chance to have at least one Conservative Senator and it sure isn’t Austinite Dewhurst.
Me too. I’m voting for Cruz.
First signed up for FR during the TX GOP Convention when Rick Perry ran for Governor on his own. FR had a booth there. I had previously discovered FR from a link on Drudge.
Never was able to login, but lurked for years. Finally re-registered and became a part of the activity.
Still have the brochure they handed out at the booth. Plan to send it back to JR with a check soon. Wonder if anyone will remember the handout brochure?
“Whats going on is that Texas conservatives are educated and know that Lt. Governor Dewhurst is and always has been a conservative.

Man, what gives with you? I’ve seen some of your other posts essentially implying that Liz Cheney is not a true conservative (in another thread discussing the possibility of her later running for Senate from Wyoming) and in this thread you’ve been implying that Cruz is not THE TRUE CONSERVATIVE in the Texas race. Things that make you go hmmm!
Don’t beleve this lopsided poll.
Cruz has a nifty anti-slime ad against Dewhurst’s Mitt type slime ad about some unnamed US and Chinese business deal
With Cruz picking up endorsements from Palins and I think I heard Perry too, not even mentioning Tea Party, he’s hot.
Two more conservative votes for Cruz from our household as well.
Have you considered moving to California? You might like it there.
What the heck is going on in Texas is the GOP had a presidential primary but we weren’t invited. So only the diehard political junkies are even halfway paying attention to the primary races for the other offices. I am doggedly sifting through the websites of all these down-ballot judges & school board hopefuls & so forth to try to figure out who to vote for but most people I know are not taking the time to do any research. If anything, they may go by those voter guides that come in the mail but I don’t trust those.
When I was at Texas in the 80s there were bumper stickers that said: SMU: the best athletes money can buy.
I’m voting for Ted Cruz, and was even before the Palins endorsed him. Dewhurst probably would be considered conservative in most of the rest of the country, but this is Texas, we can do better.
Dewhurst is NOT the conservative in the race.
Dewhurst is buying this election, but has no real base of support among activists. He’s been a status-quo leader in Texas lege and has punted more than he’s delivered.
We can do better. TED CRUZ.
Here’s who has endorsed Ted Cruz: SARAH PALIN, the Tea Party Express, U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint and Rand Paul, Dr. James Dobson, Cathie Adams, George P. Bush, Gun Owners of America, Family Research Council Action PAC, FreedomWorks, Texas Home School Coalition PAC, Kelly Shackelford, David Barton, Peggy Venable and Young Conservatives of Texas... and a lot more. Ted Xruz has won straw poll after straw poll.
Texas are behind TED CRUZ for good reason. He is a smart, articulate, expounder of conservative principles who will represent conservatives well.
This is Rubio vs Crist type race. Say no to Dew-Crist.
Other polls show Cruz and Dewhurst will end up in a runoff.
Vote for Cruz.
Are you skeptical or could this poll be accurate?
You don’t know me well at all do you? You think that because we’re not voting for Dewhurst or Cruz and going with someone else makes us “Kalifornia” material? How did you reach that conclusion?
I have no idea of its validity.
I do know that his, DewCrist, attack ads run almost non-stop and the ads from Ted Cruz don’t seem as effective or are there as many of them.
Here in our household in Marxville by the Colorado (aka Austin, TX), there are two votes for Cruz. However, I wouldn’t bet anything I cared to lose on Cruz. I’ve seen lots of Dewhurst ads on TV, but have not seen even one Cruz ad. Maybe Cruz has written off the Austin area, but I hope not since much of the surrounding area contains lots of Republican voters.
This is another Dewhurst lie.
Actual non-internal polling shows Cruz has been slowly but steadily closing the gap on Dewhurst.
In September, it was Dewhurst 41, Cruz 12
In January, it was Dewhurst 36, Cruz 18
In April, it was Dewhurst 38, Cruz 26
Cruz has cut Dewhurst’s 29-point lead (Sept.) to 18 (Jan.) and then 12 (Apr.)
I haven’t read “Swing Your Sword”. I did read “The Double T Double Cross”. I was spitting mad when I read that one - had to put it down and come back to finish. Its no wonder the TT Board of Regents was screaming “soveriegn immunity” -they ought to fire the whole bunch of ‘em...red
