Texas Republicans continue to lead in statewide election polls, but Sen. Wendy Davis is gaining some ground in the race for governor.

A Texas Lyceum Poll released Wednesday shows Davis trailing Republican Greg Abbott by single digits. Of those polled, 49 percent of people said they’d vote for Abbott, with 40 percent of respondents saying they’d choose Davis.

The poll shows Davis leads with African-American and Hispanic voters, while Abbott continues to poll ahead with independents.

The Lyceum Poll shows a much larger gap in the race for lieutenant governor. Republican Dan Patrick continues to hold a sizable double-digit lead over Democrat Leticia Van de Putte, with 47 percent to her 33 percent.
