Another SurveyUSA push poll
The present reality of the voter base in this state is that almost 50% of the Democratic Primary voters are undecided. The Hispanic vote is significantly split between Sanchez and Morales.
The Blacks have not decided who to vote for. They have a hard time voting for a Hispanic when there is a White candidate running. If they had decided, then Sanchez would not be placing a door hanger or sending mailers to the residents of the Black districts in Houston every other day.
The Whites are having a hard time voting for the corruption that both Sanchez and Morales represent especially with Enron so fresh in their minds. Other than the yellow dogs, the White Democrats are fighting the reality that they will vote for Perry if Morales or Sanchez is the Democratic gubernatorial nominee.
The upper strata of Hispanics are also having trouble with the corruption of Sanchez and Morales.
Many voters still do not know who they are going to vote for and San Antonio knows it.
The small cadre of the Democratic Party bosses who have tried to choke the corrupt Sanchez down the throats of the Democratic Party have created a tremendous amount of chaos in the Party.
No one is going to know anything solid about the governor's race until the votes come in on election night.
In the end, WorldPeace
The next governor of Texas
No more corruption. No more Monicas
God Bless Texas

Houston Congressman Ken Bentsen has jumped into a commanding lead in the race for the Democratic nomination for the U.S. Senate, according to a poll released Thursday night by KSAT-TV in San Antonio.
In the race for the Democratic nomination for governor, Laredo businessman Tony Sanchez is 8 percentage points ahead of former Attorney General Dan Morales, the poll said.
Conducted by Survey USA, the poll indicates that Texas Democrats are making up their minds about who to vote for in Tuesday's primary as the percentage of undecided voters has shrunk to less than 10 percent in the Democratic gubernatorial and U.S. Senate races.
In the Senate race, 39 percent of Democrats polled say they would vote for Bentsen if the election were held now. Twenty-four percent say they would vote for former Dallas Mayor Ron Kirk and another 24 percent say they would vote for Crandall schoolteacher Victor Morales, who had the lead in an earlier poll.
Universal City retired military attorney Gene Kelly garnered 6 percent, and 5 percent remain undecided.
The poll surveys 672 likely Texas voters and has a margin of error of 3.9 percent.
In the governor's race, Sanchez is favored by 45 percent of voters and Morales is the choice of 37 percent. Three percent named Houston attorney John WorldPeace, 6 percent picked Bill Lyon, and 9 percent remain undecided.
Eight hundred likely voters were polled and the survey has a margin of error of 3.5 percent.
