Matthew McConaughey for Texas governor? Actor leads incumbent Greg Abbott in new poll

Matthew McConaughey did more than alright, alright, alright in a new poll surveying support for Texas' next governor.

The actor, 51, who hasn't announced his candidacy yet but has teased interest in running, beat incumbent Greg Abbott by double digits.

Some 45% of Texas registered voters said they would vote for McConaughey compared to 33% who would vote for Abbott and 22% who would select someone else.

The poll, released Sunday by The Dallas Morning News and the University of Texas at Tyler, surveyed 1,126 registered voters.

1. As a Californian who lived through the Governator.... Do not do!!! Unless it is the ONLY way to

get someone less bad than Abbott. If that is absolutely and definitely the scenario, please proceed.

2. Less bad isn't a high bar when you are talking about that christofascist Abbott.

7. I think he is planning on storming the Cruz Compound myself

which frankly I would prefer him to do.

McConauhey could primary Abbott. Should he get the nomination and win, remember the Governor of Texas is not have nearly as powerful as the Lt Governor. We officially have an outstanding candidate in Mike Collier who just announced. He is going to need $$ to win this thing.

I have no clue who will be the Dem nominee.

8. I think Abbott is scared he's finished in politics,

And McConaughey's polling shows it. I know many republicans are finished with Abbott now , and will not vote for him again, no matter who else runs. We need a strong Democrat to step in now and at LT. Gov position too. Texas is waking up realizing republicans are hurting us, unless you have lots of money. I think Abbott is finished here too. He's a liar , and corrupt, and a complete failure.

9. McConaughey running does not bring me joy.

I have no idea what he stands for, other than "movie star", and "advertising star".

13. My sentiments exactly.

And one way or another, we need to see to it that Dan Patrick's political career goes into a ditch and stays there.
