Beto O’Rourke Facing Election WHIPPING From Greg Abbott in New Texas Gubernatorial Poll
Democrat gun grabber, Texas gubernatorial candidate, and failed presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke is facing a landslide gap in a new poll from Quinnipiac. O’Rourke is challenging Greg Abbott in a campaign to become Governor of the Lone Star state, three years after losing a campaign for the US Senate against Ted Cruz.
A Quinnipiac poll released earlier this week reveals Governor Abbott maintains a blowout 52% to 37% lead over O’Rourke in a tentative 2022 match-up, a margin that appears to indicate any Democrat such as O’Rourke is slated to face near impossible odds in Texas’ gubernatorial election. It’s not inaccurate to state that if the margins the poll indicates are real, an O’Rouke victory is all but impossible in November.
The poll reveals that an unrelenting torrent of illegal immigration is the most pressing issue facing Texas according to the state’s voters, with 33% of Texans stating as such. The economy is considered the second most important issue, coming in a distant second at 11%.
O’Rourke has refused to back down from an unconstitutional and wildly authoritarian proposal to seize guns from law-abiding citizens he made as President, offering a policy that may be the least popular idea that anyone could offer as a Texas Governor candidate. O’Rourke instead has opted to wage his campaign on the basis of colorful accusations of “racism” against Abbott and the white citizens of the state.
It’s not even a given that Abbott will be nominated by Republican primary voters to serve a second term as Governor. He’s drawn two serious primary challengers- state Senator Don Huffines, and former Texas GOP Chairman Allen West. With some Texas Republicans unconvinced that Abbott is the right candidate to fight for their interests, another Republican may go on to face O’Rourke in the 2022 general election.
