Gov. Rick Perry is campaigning for president, but not all Texans approve of the job he's doing as governor of the Lone Star State.

A new Public Policy Polling survey shows that 45 percent of Texans approve of the job Perry is doing as governor, while 48 percent don't approve of his work in Texas.

"Rick Perry still isn’t particularly popular in his home state of Texas,” Dean Debnam, president of Public Policy Polling, said in a statement.

But the numbers aren't all bad for Perry back home.

If the election were held today, Perry would beat President Barack Obama in Texas, 51percent to 44 percent.

The 7 percent margin of victory is smaller than McCain's 12 percent margin of victory in Texas over Obama in the 2008 election.
