Independent Poll Shows Dan Patrick Closing the Gap In a Two-Man Race for Lt. Governor

Tea Party Conservatives Coalesce Around Authentic Conservative Dan Patrick

AUSTIN – Today, the University of Texas and the Texas Tribune released new poll data showing Dan Patrick has closed the gap with 12-year incumbent David Dewhurst in the race for Lt. Governor.

“I have said from the beginning that Texas is facing a change election and is ready for new leadership across the board,” said Dan Patrick.  “I am blessed to have more Tea Party and grassroots support than any other candidate in this race and I convinced they will carry me into the Lt. Governor’s office.”

The results of the poll show David Dewhurst polling at 37 percent and closely followed by State Senator Dan Patrick, R-Houston, at 31 percent.  Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples and Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson are stuck in the teens at 17 percent and 15 percent respectively.

The Internet poll of 1,200 registered voters also reported that Dewhurst’s favorability/unfavorability is virtually tied with voters who know the 12-year incumbent very well.

“My plan has always been to get into a run-off with David Dewhurst by engaging the conservative Tea Party base,” said Patrick.  “Conservative voters have worked hard to get to know the candidates as well as their records, and my strong pro-life, pro-gun and limited government record speaks for itself.”
