Rick Perry's political future was not looking too bright earlier this year. A target of Republicans and Democrats both, Perry was looking for a third term in a year of anti-incumbency. Still, he has warded off a challenge from Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson and is now leading against his Democratic rival, according to a new Rasmussen poll.
Perry* (R): 49%
White (D): 41%
* Denotes incumbent
Rasmussen is the most accurate of all of the major pollsters. This shows a trend of voters moving closer to Perry. Perry won comfortably in 2002 but received less than 40% in a messy 2006 election. It looks like voters are still not comfortable with White so they are sticking with what they know.
