PPP trying to say that half of the Texas GOP thinks the party is too “liberal?”

Posted in TX Governor's Race by Texas Conservative on February 23, 2010

“48% think the party’s too liberal to 26% who think it’s where it should be ideologically.”  

That is something that just jumped out at me in the now “officially” released poll by the PPP. Remember, this is a left-leaning outfit that has mainly done polls for liberal organizations like Planned Parenthood and they’re based out of North Carolina. It’s not Rasmussen.  

But for them to include that nearly half of the people they spoke to said they were A) Republicans and B) the Texas GOP was too “liberal” has to make one stop and pause…then ask, “who are they asking?” As someone who has been to every GOP Convention for the last 20 years…I know that it is not a group of Susan Collins, Olympia Snowe, and Arlen Specter Republicans that meet. We may have even coined the term RINO in Texas.  

So it does make you question their motives. Right now, what is Kay Bailey Hutchison traveling the state saying? Oh, “this thing is going to go in a runoff.” Then you read ““The better voters have gotten to know Debra Medina the less they’ve liked her,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling. “Her presence in the race may send Rick Perry and Kay Bailey Hutchison into a runoff but that’s about it at this point.”  

Is this code for, KBH needs you to stop thinking about Medina and start thinking about me as the person you should vote for? Medina has pulled more from Kay than she has Rick – so is PPP carrying the water for the far less conservative member of the two titans? It’s certainly a legitimate question.
