Poll: Paxton in Dead Heat in Attorney General Race

Texas Trib primary poll 2013If the Republican primary election for Texas Attorney General were held today, it would be too close to predict, according to a poll conducted by the University of Texas and The Texas Tribune. Notably, a majority of voters are undecided in this race and others, including the 2014 gubernatorial competition in which Republican Greg Abbott holds only a five point lead against the likely Democratic nominee Wendy Davis and a 35 point lead over Libertarian Kathie Glass. Twenty percent are undecided.

In the AG Republican primary race poll, Railroad Commissioner Barry Smitherman is at 11 percent, state Sen. Ken Paxton [McKinney] at 10 percent and state Rep. Dan Branch at 5 percent. The vast majority of Republican voters — 74 percent — remain undecided.

The University of Texas/Texas Tribune internet survey of 1,200 registered voters was conducted Oct. 18-27 and has an overall margin of error of +/- 3.3 percentage points. Results among self-identified Republican primary voters carry a margin of error of +/- 5.02 percentage points; among Democratic primary voters, +/- 6.03 percentage points. Numbers in the charts might not add up to 100 percent, because of rounding.
