President Obama leads Governor Perry 47-45 in Texas, reminding one of that old saying that familiarity breeds contempt, according to Public Polic Polling (http://www.publicpolicypolling.com/) . Both the President and the Governor have higher disapproval than approval ratings.
Governor Perry better hope he is better liked outside Texas than in it.
President Obama would also defeat former Governor Palin in Texas, but trails Congresswoman Bachmann, former Governor Pawlenty narrowly. Former Governor Romney is ahead of the President 50 to 42 in Texas, the only Republican candidate with a real lead.
