Public Policy Polling released a survey Tuesday showing Rick Perry’s popularity plummeting, making him one of the most unpopular Governors in America. Even Republicans have had enough of the Texan Governor. 62 percent of voters think Perry should step aside and not seek reelection. In contrast, 31 percent think he should seek reelection next year.
Only 41% of GOP primary voters want him to be their candidate again, compared to 47% who think it’s time for someone else. And in a head to head match up with Attorney General Greg Abbott, Perry leads by only a 41/38 margin.
Some have speculated — and even Perry himself has entertained the notion– that he may seek another Presidential run in 2014 but only 14% of Texans think Perry should run again, to 79% who are opposed to the idea.
A Rasmussen poll in December resulted in an extreme decline in approval numbers for the Tea Party, who have typically backed Governor Perry.
