Perry’s approval rating in Texas sinks

A poll of Texans reveals that Rick Perry’s approval rating in Texas has dropped.

Poll Results on Rick Perry from San Antonio Express-Jan 2012The poll, reported in the San Antonio Express-News (Perry’s approval rating in Texas sinks – San Antonio Express“) and other Texas newspapers indicates Perry’s image took a beating in the state as he ran for president.

The Texas Tribune reports that Perry spokesperson Ray Sullivan seems to be already looking ahead to 2016: “Gov. Perry remains strongly and conservatively at the helm of Texas state government and may well run for re-election in 2014. He may also run for president again in 2016, especially if President Obama somehow wins a second term.”

Perry can make a comeback. However, it looks like his staff has not learned much from their mistakes. Perry needs to mend fences back home and talking about 2016 may not be the best way to start. The Perry campaign still doesn’t seem to think that there is a problem with their message. Don’t talk about coming out for an encore when you’ve just been booed off the stage.
