Dallas: White Losing to Both Perry & Hutchison

But White believes he can overtake a GOP rival, and says some Republicans will help him do it. KERA’s Shelley Kofler reports.

This week’s Rasmussen poll shows Perry holding a 10-point lead over Hutchison.

But when pollsters asked likely Texas voters to choose between Republican frontrunners and Democratic contender Bill White, they found Perry more vulnerable. Perry leads White by 10 points. Hutchison leads White by 15 points.

For Coakley, Ominous Sign

Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley ...Image via Wikipedia
Fourteen months ago, there was a buzz on Blue Hill Ave. and the streets that run off it like caterpillar legs. This is the heart of the biggest minority community in the state, and the energy generated by the prospect of Barack Obama becoming president was palpable.

Yesterday, I drove the length of Blue Hill Ave. and counted exactly two Martha Coakley signs. One of them was on a fence next to the Roxbury Energy Gas station, on the corner of Moreland Street. The sign wasn’t properly fastened. It flapped in the wind, revealing a “Mike Flaherty for Mayor’’ sign underneath.
