New Dallas Morning News poll
The Dallas Morning News commissioned a poll. Their writeup is here.
The full results are here.
Perhaps the most interesting question was the one of who Kinky Friedman supporters would vote for if Kinky was not on the ballot/in the race. It seems that there is no clear contingent that Kinky is pulling from. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
Kinky's unfavorables are pretty up there, but a good percentage of the people that responded did not "know enough" to give an opinion. I wonder if any of the other candidates will take advantage of being able to paint Kinky as unqualified/a joke/undesireable while they still can.
Anyone have any thoughts/predictions on who will go hard negative first and on whom?

Strayhorn will go negative on Kinky first in order to keep him from gaining traction and consolidate her status as the only viable alternative to "do-nothing Perry" in a solidly GOP state. She'll then try to draw on Kinky's sassy populism but will probably fail miserably in that regard.
I doubt that the dems will go seriously negative first, although there will always be veiled attacks by nature of their ethics-based campaigns.
