TYLER, Texas (KETK) The University of Texas at Tyler and Dallas Morning News
announced this week, the first of five collaborative statewide surveys.
In that first survey, on the Democratic side, former Vice President Joe Biden is looking to be the front-runner, with 35% support since a November poll.
His closest rival is Senator Bernie Sanders with 18%.
Newcomer former-mayor of New York City Mike Bloomberg catapults to third-place contention, tied with Warren at 16% support.
“Mayor Bloomberg’s ascendance is largely attributed to his popularity among white, olderKenneth Bryant Jr., UT Tyler assistant professor of political science
voters and moderates. In fact, he and Biden appear to share these demographics. When asked to identify their second choice candidate for the Democratic primary, over one third of
Bloomberg first-choice voters selected Biden.”
The vast majority of Texas Democrats remain undecided on the U.S. senate primary. No candidate is winning double-digit support nor leading outside of the margin of error.
President Donald Trump’s job approval is up from the last survey in November.
The President’s approval stands at 45% approval among all registered Texans. His disapproval stands at 47% with 8% not sure.
