EDINBURGH, Texas (NEXSTAR) — Now that you’ve heard Texas’s two gubernatorial candidates debate the biggest issues of the 2022 campaign, we want to know who you think performed better.
Has incumbent Republican Governor Greg Abbott done enough to win your support and keep his seat? Did Democrat Beto O’Rourke have the big night he was hoping to gain support from enough voters to send him to Austin? We’re sharing the above statewide poll in Texas to see what debate watchers thought of Friday’s performance.
Check back over the next few days to see the latest results from this unscientific debate poll.
The latest Nexstar Media/Emerson College poll taken last week found Abbott with an 8-point lead over O’Rourke among likely voters in Texas.
Of course, the real vote comes on Nov. 8 when voters in Texas head to the polls for the general election. Early voting dates vary by location. The last day to register to vote is October 11. You can register here.
