A new Texas Lyceum poll released Wednesday shows Attorney General Greg Abbott ahead of Sen. Wendy Davis in the governor’s race. Abbott is polling at 29 percent, compared to Davis who has 21 percent. Despite Abbott’s early lead, however, most Texans still have not made up their minds. About 50 percent of those polled said they do not know who they would vote for if the election was held today.

The poll shows the two candidates in a statistical tie among registered women voters, with 51 percent of females still classifying themselves as ‘undecided’. Davis, who is expected to formally announce her candidacy tomorrow, enjoys a lead with minority groups.

“Once again, the Republicans continue to dominate the ballot for governor and all legislative offices. Moreover, GOP candidates essentially split the female vote and win males by close to 20 points,” said University of Texas Professor Daron Shaw. “On the other side of the ledger, those Democrats hoping to turn the state blue in the short term might also take solace in the fact that more than half of the electorate isn’t yet engaged with the 2014 elections.”
