One more data point
I know I'm the last to this poll, but I'll mark it down:
The poll was done by Texans for Insurance Reform, an arm of Texas Trial Lawyers. Most of them had been supporting Strayhorn, but a few have donated to Chris Bell recently. 600 respondents; pollster Opinion Analysts. The poll was done pre-Labor Day, so I assume it was in the field at the end of August. That means the TV ads wouldn't affect the poll.
When asked who their second choice would be:
Strayhorn 20%I don't have the wording for that one, so it's tough to know how much importance to place on it.
I'd write more, but i'm just too busy.
