Dewhurst Maintains Big Lead in New Poll

The poll showed little movement from the last one conducted for the Dewhurst campaign. In that survey, which was conducted from Oct. 30 though Nov. 1 of last year, Dewhurst led with 50 percent, followed by Leppert at 9 percent and Cruz at 6 percent. Both surveys were conducted by Baselice & Associates, an Austin-based polling firm. Dewhurst is considered a heavy favorite in the race thanks to his name recognition, fundraising success and personal wealth. He needs a majority of votes in the primary to avoid a runoff with the second place finisher. Former state Rep. Paul Sadler is the leading Democrat in the race, but Republicans are expected to easily hold the seat.
