Texas Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison has turned the race for the GOP nomination for governor into a real toss up, leading incumbent Rick Perry 40 percent to 38 percent in a new Rasmussen Reports poll.
Perry led Hutchison in mid-July, when she announced her candidacy, 46 percent to 36 percent. This survey included "tea party" activist Debra Medina, who polled just 3 percent. Nineteen percent of voters are still undecided.
Perry's favorable-to-unfavorable ratio is 72 percent to 26 percent while Hutchison's is 71 percent to 26 percent.

The Sept. 16 poll of 790 likely GOP primary voters has a margin of error of 3.5 percent.

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.
