Most Texans Don't Credit Perry for Economic Growth

The latest University of Texas/Texas Tribune poll finds that an overwhelming number of Texans attribute the state's economic success to "long-standing policies and natural resources," at 65%, while just 21% believe it was a result of Gov. Rick Perry's (R) leadership.

"The poll results appear to show Texas voters don't buy Perry's claim that his policies are responsible for the state's economy and that he can do the same for the country. The findings, however, buttress his claim that protecting those state policies against efforts to raise taxes and increase regulation helped the state weather the recession."
