Survey: Texas voters increasingly unhappy with GOP

AUSTIN – Texas voters are increasingly dissatisfied with the state’s Republican leaders and are open to the idea of electing a Democrat as governor in the next election, according to a new survey by an established GOP pollster.

The survey, conducted by David Hill, raises questions about whether the Republican Party might be in trouble after a decade of political dominance in Texas.

“The poll results challenge the conventional wisdom that Texas is a solidly red state,” said Mr. Hill. “This shows that the Republican Party’s image, even among Anglos and conservatives and self-professed Republicans, is often not what we would like it to be.”

Texas voters don’t think the GOP is delivering government that is low-cost, in-touch or devoted to the common good, the poll shows.

Survey: Texas voters increasingly unhappy with GOP

I have been called a traitor to the Republican party because I speak so badly of them on the blog. I tell my readers, I am NOT a Republican, nor am I a Democrat. I don’t vote for the *party line*, I vote for the candidate that I feel best represents me, my views and what I want to see done for my city, county, state and nation. I vote as a true Independent with strong Conservative feelings. Call me old fashioned but I expect more than empty promises and handshakes across the aisle.

The Republican party left people like me behind years ago, along about the time George W. Bush was first elected. That was about the time that I realized, there’s not a dimes worth of difference between the RNC and the DNC, we have Dems and we have Dem Lite. Until one, or BOTH return to an America 1st style of business, until one, or BOTH return to listening to their constituents, I will not declare any allegiance to either!

We, The People, we are the ones the elected officials work for, every so often those officials need a strong wake up call to remind them of that fact! Hopefully, with the election of Barack Obama as well as the loss of the Senate and House, maybe, just maybe, the RNC is getting the message, if not, oh well.

Many of us already feel that it’s way past time for a viable CONSERVATIVE party, I am NOT a political science kind of guy, I am the writer of a blog. I see a lot of things that need to be but I am NOT in any way prepared to instigate them, other than throwing the ideas out there while hoping some *brainiac* political whiz kid will snatch it up and run with it.

America is awash in patriots, even today, but we have to have leadership that sees things the way we do, leaders that see America regain that once held position of global importance. There are many that will work tirelessly to make things happen, we just have to find the right leaders to get the ball rolling!

If the Republicans can’t, or won’t do these things, then pray that the right Conservative comes forward that will.

    I heard George W. bought a house in Dallas, has he invited you over for a B-B-Q yet?

  2. comment number 2 by: TexasFred

    He did, according to the noon news he bought 2 actually, side by side, the 2nd one is said to be a house for the Secret Service…

    And if the son of a bitch invited me, I still wouldn’t go!

    I wonder why he bought a house in Dallas since he has the ranch in Crawford? Don’t make sense to me!! But then, I don’t have his kind of money either.

    Welp, when you see that strong conservative leadership, with both feet firmly planted, let me know. I’ve been looking, but so far….. There are a few who could be possibles… like Jindal maybe?

    So many have followed along and gone the way of the RINO, and expect to go over that cliff with ‘em. Pfft! They can all bite my over sized hind end! Anybody who feels they have to ‘give in’ and compromise principles is not in the running, IMHO.

    All Conservatives are becoming weary of RINOs running the show…although I’m not sure your Senate Gal wanting to run for Gov over Perry is much improvement.

    Pat, you’re gonna NEVER find it in MY blog anywhere that I said she was, I can’t stand the bitch, and once upon a time she really WAS the best and the brightest…

    No more, she voted for the bailout, Amnesty and the Immigrant Dream Act, she shit in the whiskey as far as I am concerned…

    I ain’t just TX voters who are unhappy with the GOP, If the GOP doesn’t field some ‘real Conservatives’ in the next elections, I’m just gonna stop voting. No point in voting for who or what you don’t approve of.

    All but two or three of the people I work with are conservatives, a couple of them voted for Obambi, but most calling themselves Republicans voted for Perry. My wife and I where pulling for Kinky and Bell.

    So when Perry started to break election promises before his term started, and a bit more came out about the lottery, trans Texas corridor, Gardisil and all of the other scams Perry is involved in came out some of the Perry voters started to back pedal.

    IMNSHO Bell is more conservative than Perry, and my wife and I hope he runs again, I will gladly contribute and walk streets for him.

    A friend of mine has the capabilities to make vinyl signs, the back of my Suburban will read “Collin county Conservative for Bell”

    As far as I can tell, the best I can say about Perry and Hutchinson, is that they are self serving. The rest goes down hill from there!

    Across this nation people are starting to believe the liberal media. They are starting to believe conservative values are dead and liberal values are to be embraced.

    It is high time conservatives stand up and demand representation. The media labeled GW as a conservative to further their cause. He is a centralist with a couple conservative leanings. His one world government focus, war policies and amnesty dreams with the media labeling him a conservative has done almost irreparable damage to our nation. Many conservatives have been questioning their positions. If GW is a conservative how can I…..

    True conservatives and true conservative values clearly stand out. All we need is a few with the guts to run.
