Sixty-five percent of Texas voters say coronavirus 'out of control'

Nearly two-thirds of Texas voters say the spread of the coronavirus in their state is “out of control,” according to a new Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday.

Sixty-five percent of respondents said the virus is running wild in the Lonestar State, which has emerged as a new hot spot in recent weeks. Slightly less than a third, 31 percent, said the coronavirus is largely under control in the state.

Overall, nearly three-quarters of respondents, 74 percent, said the spread of the novel coronavirus in Texas is a “serious problem,” according to the Quinnipiac poll.

New coronavirus cases and virus-related deaths have surged in Texas in recent weeks, with the state reporting this week that more than 1,000 people had died from the virus in a 10-day period.

Approval of Gov. Greg Abbott’s (R) handling of the coronavirus crisis in his state has also taken a nosedive. Forty-seven percent said they approve of his response to the outbreak, down from 56 percent in a similar Quinnipiac poll conducted in early June. Meanwhile, disapproval of the governor’s response shot upward to 48 percent, a 12-point increase over last month.
