Rise of the Ricker

The Ricker (Texas Governor Rick Perry to the unaffiliated) seems to be enjoying some nice poll numbers.  According to a recently released poll the Ricker enjoys the following leads in a general election:

  • 53 – 39 over Wendy Davis
  • 50-43 over Julian Castro
  • 52-35 over Annise Parker
  • 50-40 over Bill White

This shows a few things.  First, Texans must be patient (they put up with Perry this long).  Second, being a Democrat and having statewide ambitions in Texas sucks.  Third, the problem for the Ricker in Texas is primary not the general election.  If he gets a credible Tea Party primary challenger (not Deborah Medina) then things could get really interesting for the Ricker.  Otherwise the Ricker will get re-elected and give the White House another shot.
