TX GOV Approval Collapses as COVID Deaths Explode

Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s job approval numbers have been declining recently as he struggles to get COVID under control in his state. Despite being a Republican governor in a Republican state, Abbott’s approval rating is down to 45%, well below its 59% high before the pandemic. Deaths from COVID in the Lone Star State are spiking badly, with 300-400 daily deaths being the norm now. Abbott made a point to do away with COVID restrictions early as a way to spite the Biden administration, and he’s been a vocal opponent of mask and vaccine mandates. To make matters worse for Abbott, he’s up for reelection in 2022 and has to fight a two-front war. Texas GOP Chairman Allen West is running against Abbott in the primary and has been critical of him for shutting down the state over COVID in the first place. If Abbott survives the primary challenge, he could face former US Congressman Beto O’Rourke, who reportedly has been weighing a run. This Texas race is going to be one of the most important contests in the 2022 midterm elections and if the polling is close, Democrats should do whatever they can to pick up the governorship in the nation’s second largest state.
