Texas Lyceum Poll: Clinton 36%, Sanders 24%, Biden 15%

In the Democratic field, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was the top choice for 36 percent of respondents, compared with 24 percent for U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont. Vice President Joe Biden, who is mulling a potential presidential run, polled at 15 percent.

Looking yet farther ahead into the general election, the Lyceum poll found Texans do not favor Clinton who trails Bush, Cruz and Trump by eight, seven and two points, respectively. But Texans polled supported Clinton over Rubio, who trailed by seven points.

The poll also tallied approval ratings for Gov. Greg Abbott, 56 percent, and President Barack Obama, 52 percent.

1. Why do polsters insist on including NON-candidate Biden?

 

This is getting absurd, in the extreme. Sounds like Biden's not even going
to be in the Oct 13 debate. I don't know why anyone's taking him seriously
anymore.

2. I suspect that most of the support will break towards Clinton rather than Sanders

based upon results from other polls and overall ideology. That would put Clinton ahead by about 20% over Sanders, but there is 25% that are undecided and some of those will not vote in the primary.

5. Not necessarily. I know that is commonly assumed

 

but part of the Biden numbers have to be "anyone but Hillary" .. so I suspect Biden numbers
are more or less evenly split between Clinton & Sanders, which would make it 43 Clinton / 32 Sanders,
with an 11 point spread.

What galls me is we are left to guess about this shit, rather than having pollsters that only list
ACTUAL candidates.

He has cut the gap by about 20 points

7. He made, what, two campaign stops in Texas?

The more people see if Bernie the more they like. He's opposite of Hillary in that regard.

10. Certainly with that small of a sample it does lead

to a significant MOE. It would be interesting to see the methodology and demographics on this poll.

I hope that Texas Tribune conducts another poll in about a month after at least the first debate and also past the point that Biden will have decided whether he enters the primary contests.

11. Impressive that Obama has a 52% approval rating in Texas--higher than his national average

1. Very good job.
22%

2. Somewhat good job.
30%

3. Somewhat poor job.
11%

4. Very poor job.
33%

5. DONíT KNOW / REFUSED / NA
4%

page 3, question #6

It also reflects the fact that the people who don't like the job that the president is doing are very adamant about their poutrage.
