New Poll: Governor's Race is Close, Very Close



    Gov. Rick Perry and former Houston mayor Bill White.

    Polls are like Texas weather: if you don't like it, just wait a few minutes and it'll change.

    Enter the Texas Watch Poll, a self proclaimed "non-partisan, advocacy organization working to improve consumer and insurance protections for Texas families."

    Their polling shows Gov. Rick Perry slightly ahead with 42 percent to Bill White's 41 percent. Fourteen percent of people polled were undecided. The margin of error was +/- 4 percent.
