Perry tops Strayhorn in poll of Republican voters | News for Denton, Texas | Texas/Southwest: "Gov. Rick Perry holds a double-digit lead over Comptroller Carole Keeton Strayhorn in a GOP primary race, although Republican voters say both candidates are doing a good job, according to a new poll.

At the same time, the Scripps Howard Texas Poll indicates that Mr. Perry has not locked up a majority of Republican primary voters and that the governor's job-approval ratings continue to slide among all Texans.

If the 2006 primary were held today, 46 percent of Republican voters would support Mr. Perry, compared with 28 percent for Mrs. Strayhorn. Nearly one-quarter are undecided. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

Analysts said the numbers indicate that although Mrs. Strayhorn faces an uphill battle in trying to oust the incumbent, the task is not impossible."
