A new University of Texas / Texas Tribune Poll shows the governor’s race within single digits. The poll released Monday puts Attorney General Greg Abbott ahead of Wendy Davis, 40 percent to 34 percent. About a quarter of those polled still say they have not decided who to vote for.

Poll director Daron Shaw told the Texas Tribune, “What you’ve got is a race in which, for the first time in a long time, the Democrat is as well-known as the Republican at the outset of the race.”

James Henson from the Texas Politics Project will join us this evening to talk more about what the poll means for the 2014 election.
