Polling on such the issues most dear to Texans — issues as politics and sports — found some Texas-sized disdain for Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones. Public Policy Polling’s “Odds and Ends” says only 14 percent of Texans polled rating him favorably, and 48 percent unfavorably. “I’m pretty sure that -34 spread represents the worst poll numbers we’ve ever found for someone in Texas,” PPP director Tom Jensen’s news release said.


Not sure that it matters, since Jones isn’t running for anything. Gov. Rick Perry, however, won’t be happy with the poll: It shows that 64 percent of Texans would vote for someone other than Perry in the next gubernatorial election. From a news release on the poll:

“Texans’ esteem for Rick Perry has dropped considerably in the aftermath of his
disastrous presidential bid,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling.
“He’s got some work to do if he plans on running for office again in Texas.”
