Straw Polls and E-polls in TX

In the both Democratic E-poll and the Republican straw poll, well-intentioned Texans picked the losing candidate. The thousand or so Republicans who participated threw their support to Duncan Hunter and the 8 thousand Dems chose John Edwards, who officially is giving up the good fight today. Oh well, maybe if we moved our primary up the Texas picks would have stood a chance. Perhaps next time. “Texas Democrats are excited about all the candidates on the ballot,” said (soon to be former) Texas Democrats spokeswoman Amber Moon. “The Republicans don’t really have anybody that energizes them.”
