Poll: Texas Voters Have Had Enough Of Rick Perry [View all]

Source: TPM

His approval rating in the gutter, Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) approaches 2014 with a large majority of his contituents indicating they'd prefer if he didn't seek another term, according to a survey from Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling released Tuesday.

Fifty-four percent of Lone Star State voters said they disapprove of the job Perry is doing as governor, while 41 percent said they approve. A larger majority, 62 percent, said Perry should not seek re-election next year compared with just 31 percent who said he should.

A vast majority of his constituents are also sour on Perry's aspirations for higher office. Seventy-nine percent of Texas voters, including 66 percent of Republicans, said Perry should not run for president in 2016. Perry said last month that he has no regrets over a tumultuous White House bid in the previous cycle that was notable for a number of cringe-inducing moments. He has said repeatedly that he is open to launching another presidential campaign in four years.
