SHOCK POLL: Hypothetical Head-to-Head for TX Governor Shows Actor Matthew McConaughey Beating Beto 2-to-1
A survey released by the University of Texas and the Dallas Morning News shows actor Matthew McConaughey is in a hypothetical lead for Texas governor. In a match-up against current Republican Governor Greg Abbott, 43 percent of respondents say they would back McConaughey, 35 percent would support Abbott, and 22 percent would choose someone else.
In another hypothetical race against Democrat Beto O’Rourke, McConaughey’s chances were even higher with 49 percent saying they would support McConaughey to 27 percent in favor of O’Rourke.
O’Rourke’s attempts in Texas politics have not fared well in recent years. He lost the Senate bid to Ted Cruz in 2018, then “flopped” as a Democratic presidential candidate in 2020. Now Beto is attempting to oust Governor Abbott.
McConaughey has not made a decision on a political run. Last month he told The New York Times has was still “measuring” a bid and would only seriously consider running if he believed he could be “useful” to Texas’ electorate.
When assessing all three candidates together, “In a three-way race, however, the survey found O’Rourke and McConaughey would split the anti-Abbott vote and allow the governor to win reelection,” writes Mediaite.
In total, “The poll has Abbott at 37, McConaughey at 27, and O’Rourke at 26. O’Rourke, in that three-way battle, garnered 74 percent of the Democratic vote. But if McConaughey proves to be a viable candidate, it seems plausible that he could gain more Democratic support — should he end up as the most likely opponent to defeat Abbott.”

BREAKING: Federal Indictment of Trump in Classified Documents Probe has been Unsealed
Former President and current Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump, has been indicted and is facing 37 counts in connection with his alleged mishandling of classified documents. The 49-page document was unsealed Friday.
The indictment contains charges of the following: Willful retention of national defense information, conspiracy to obstruct justice, withholding a document or record, corruptly concealing a document or record, concealing a document in a federal investigation, scheme to conceal, and making false statements and representations.
Trump announced the indictment Thursday night on Truth Social, his social media platform:
“The corrupt Biden Administration has informed my attorneys that I have been Indicted, seemingly over the Boxes Hoax, even though Joe Biden has 1850 Boxes at the University of Delaware, additional Boxes in Chinatown, D.C., with even more Boxes at the University of Pennsylvania, and documents strewn all over his garage floor where he parks his Corvette, and which is ‘secured’ by only a garage door that is paper thin, and open much of the time.”
Trump declared himself an “INNOCENT MAN” and the subject of the “Greatest Witch Hunt of all time.” The Biden administration, he claimed, is ‘TOTALLY CORRUPT.”
The former president has argued that all the documents in question were declassified when he left the White House. “You’re the president of the United States, you can declassify just by saying it’s declassified, even by thinking about it,” he told Fox News host Sean Hannity in an interview last year.
Trump was on to Biden's deep corruption re Ukraine and wanted it investigated, so they impeached him.
Now that many of Biden's crimes are being exposed, naturally they're going to indict Trump again.

What has happened is that more conservative candidates have come out against Abbott, one in particular (Don Huffines) has gotten a lot of support. Democrats are hoping that Abbott (or Huffines) is weakened by the primary to the point they might have a chance. There is ZERO chance of that actually happening. The “red wave” is going to be a 100ft tsunami in Texas.
