57% dems undecided and other? Wow! How much of that do you think is Kinky?

Two things:
1) I think it's probably accurate that about 57% are undecided.
2) Name ID for both Bell and Alvarado is very low. You have a one-term former Houston congressman and a Fort Worth school principal. Nobody across the state has heard the names "Bell" and "Alvarado".

So name ID is probably a bigger factor than Kinky. Though since Kinky appears to be drawing some Democrats and splitting the anti-Perry vote, that can't help Democrats.
