A higher share, 80 percent, said he was competent. Patrick got good reviews from 34 percent of voters and bad ones from 36 percent; Straus had 25 percent good reviews and 29 percent negative ones. The June 2017 University of Texas/Texas Tribune Pollreveals direct signs of the Texas Republican voters' embrace of Trump as well as signs of his indirect influence on the attitudes of Republican voters. To be sure, Texas Republicans have not embraced a rapprochement with Russian Federation to the extent that Trump appears to be pursuing. That contention aligns with the views of Republican voters in Texas. This no doubt informs many Democrats' astonishment that Trump supporters don't see him as they do.
Kerry knows of what he speaks: "Former Secretary of State John Kerry said Monday that the Iran nuclear deal could hold even if President Donald Trump pulls out but he warned that imposing new economic sanctions against Tehran could be unsafe". Once again, the answers were colored by party affiliation: 74 percent of Democratic voters said yes, while 80 percent of Republican voters said no.
Given the mutually reinforcing effects of partisan polarization in the electorate and the intensity of both positive and negative feelings toward Trump, it is no surprise that the poll reveals that Democratic attitudes are the opposite, with the qualification that they are slightly more negative than the Republicans are positive. That comes two months after House Republicans passed a measure to repeal and replace parts of the Affordable Care Act. The lesser-known El Pasoan is viewed favorably by 18 percent of Texas voters, unfavorably by 15 percent. Nearly half of Texas voters - 49 percent - have "somewhat" or "very" unfavorable views of the ACA, while 51 percent put the House plan in that same category. O'Rourke, who has never run for office outside of El Paso, isn't a name brand yet: 13 percent of Texas voters have a neutral opinion of him, but 55 percent have no opinion at all.
The internet survey of 1,200 registered voters was conducted June 2 to 11 and has a margin of error of 2.83 percentage points. TAP HERE to read the full methodology. Coming Friday: Texans' views on the state's top politicians and on the economy and direction of the state.
