Texas Governor Greg Abbott is in for two fights this election.
He will have at least two “strong” challengers in the GOP primary race.
If he makes it through the primary, his likely opponent will be Beto O’Rourke.
Right now, Abbott is crushing them all.
Abbott’s Seat to Lose
The GOP primary field for the election is started to get crowded.
There are about six candidates that have declared, with Abbott’s two closest competitors right now being Col. Allen West and former State Senator Don Huffines.
Abbott is leading them both by 15 and 14 points, respectively.
Abbott currently has the support of about 60 percent of Republicans in the state, so his chances look very good.
Assuming Abbott makes it out of the primary and into the general election, Beto’s fate is not much better.
Even though there is a growing Democrat presence in the state, Beto is still a full 10 points away from Abbott, as he continues to slide back.
Independent voters have clearly had enough of Democrats, with Abbott now holding a 41-21 edge against O’Rourke on that front.
Overall, Abbott has done a great job managing the state during the pandemic, being one of the few states that thrived while others were collapsing.
He probably would have been vulnerable if he had another issue with the power supply during the most recent storms, but there were no issues, and he came out clean as a whistle.
I think I can go out on a limb and predict that Abbott will not be moving out of the governor’s mansion anytime soon.
