Perry’s Texas Approval Plummets

Either Texans love Obama, or Rick Perry's campaign really killed his cool, because the former presidential candidate's home state has more love for the president than its own governor. According to a new Dallas Morning News poll, 37 percent of Texans have a less-favorable view of Perry since he dropped out of the GOP race, and 45 percent think his campaign has been bad for the state's image. While 40 percent of Perry's constituents approve of how he's doing his job, 43 percent approve of President Obama's performance.
