Perry's job approval falls below 40

Chris has an entry on Texas Governor Rick Perry's Approval ratings and they ain't looking good.

The guys at Burnt Orange Report have the latest Rick Perry job approval numbers, and Democrats have reason to celebrate this morning:

Do you approve or disapprove of the job Rick Perry is doing as governor?

38% Approve
48% Disapprove
14% Not Sure

(Conducted by SurveyUSA, 5/06-5/08, +/- 4.1%)Click here for a demographic breakdown of the results.

BOR also points out that Perry's numbers remain high among the GOP party faithful (and I would add that they'd probably be higher still if the pollster screened for likely primary voters rather than just party affiliation). That means Perry looks likely to have enough base support to survive a primary, but will be in big trouble come November.

Wall Street Journal suprisignly reports, in Tuesday's commentary edition, that the Texas Republican machine is more than stabbing Texans in the back by onsidering to impose the dreaded income tax. They call it the wage tax. As a matter of fact, it's Dewhurst, the Lt. Govenor, who is imposing. This is a testament to to their careless spending and passing the buck to us Texan citizens.
