Hollywood wants to be governor of Texas! McConaughey leading in Texas?

11

Matthew McConaughey commands more support to be Texas’ next governor than incumbent Greg Abbott, according to a poll released Sunday by The Dallas Morning News and the University of Texas at Tyler.

It’s not a great poll and since McConaughey isn’t yet in the race and hasn’t told us what his platform is, this poll is meaningless. It is what the media wants us to believe, however.

If he were to run for governor, the poll found, 45% of Texas registered voters would vote for McConaughey, 33% would vote for Abbott and 22% would vote for someone else.

McConaughey’s double-digit lead over the two-term Republican incumbent is significant, according to the Dallas Morning News. The poll, conducted April 6-13, surveyed 1,126 registered voters and has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 2.92 percentage points.

However,  56% of Republican voters said they’d vote for Abbott, compared with only 30% for McConaughey.

Obviously, something is wrong with this poll.

While Democrats broke 66% to 8% for McConaughey, and independents 44% to 28%, more than twice as many Democratic primary voters — 51% — said they wanted a progressive candidate for governor than wanted a centrist — 25%.

The poll doesn’t make sense and it’s partly in the wording of the questions.

Governor Abbott has made some angry lately by trashing gab and let’s not forget the energy crisis during the once-in-ten-year storm.

While McConaughey is no communist progressive, he is not a moderate either.

Not much is known about his political views but his only complaint about Democrats is the far-left is too far.

He is no Republican.

The Guardian writes:

When asked about defunding the police, McConaughey gave a careful response on how he would attempt to improve relations between police and the community. “It’s almost like it should have been renamed because ‘defund’ does not sound anything like there’s been money reallocated to different areas of handling some police exercise,” he said.

“The community and the police need to get back together, and the community needs to say, ‘Here’s what’s unfair. Here’s how I feel it’s unfair as a Black man or a person of color or whatever the situation. Here’s my problem with my relationship with you as cops,” he continued.

The actor spoke out on the “epidemic” of gun violence in 2018, taking a different stance from his more progressive colleagues. He showed concern that the March for Our Lives, organized after the Parkland high school shooting, would be “hijacked” by some anti-gun movement, saying that the march was for “rightful, just and responsible gun ownership – but against assault rifles, against unlimited magazines and for following up on the regulations”.

Early in the pandemic, McConaughey filmed pro-mask PSAs and interviewed Dr. Anthony Fauci on Instagram. In an interview with Jesse Will for Men’s Journal, he lamented how politicized mask-wearing had been by both sides of the spectrum. “It became apparent that there was no plan. Our leaders were scrambling,” he said. [A slap at the Republicans]

If he does run as a Democrat, he will be passed off as a moderate but he won’t support the police or guns. The media is already trying to pass off an ardent liberal as a moderate like Joe Biden. He’s allegedly a moderate too.

  1. It’s merely more nonsense from the USA junk pop culture. The globalist left will use any trick to destroy America. Conducting a junk poll on if a celebrity can be governor is not an academic exercise that the university should be a part of. It is a propaganda exercise that the university participated in. Notice that the school did not conduct any polls on policy.

  2. I don’t know a lot about McConaughey’s politics although I heard he is a pretty good guy and a conservative. How conservative I don’t know. I know Abbot hurt himself with his mask edict for Texas which my county judge for one told Abbot to pound sand. Abbot also hurt himself by buckling under to big pharma’s wishes and issuing an edict against prescribing HCQ to treat COVID symptoms. Then to further throw himself under the bus Abbot, without any proof or evidence, declared the social media site, GAB, to be anti-Semitic. The RINOs in the Texas GOP also perpetuate that unproven claim.
    As for McConaughey, he has to campaign hard and prove his conservative credentials to win my vote. I would rather see a proven conservative like Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick be governor.

    • He’s conservative for a Democrat but he’s not conservative the way I look at conservatism. I heard Abbott is getting RINO-ish, is that true?

    • Wouldn’t you agree though that a RINO is better than some pretend moderate like Joe Biden? McConaughey is definitely a liberal. Then add the fact that he is Hollywood and completely uninformed about most issues, and he would be a disaster for TX.

    • [fill in the blank] _____________ is far from conservative….he’s playing both sides.

      You could put 4/5ths of the Republicans in that blank spot, and it would stick.

      Not that I’m disagreeing about McConaughey, but sheesh — even that decades-long darling of the party, Rudy GIuliani, “America’s Mayor” and Trump’s great friend, was/is explicitly pro-abortion.

      Look at former Ohio governor Kasich — known to be anti-2A even way back in the 90’s when he was a congressman, ended up being a bitter rancorous turncoat.

      Look at McConnell. Graham. Even Kristi Noem crapped out. Talk about “playing both sides,” she talks out of both sides of her mouth. She wants credit among the base for her big talk, but doesn’t want to deal with the consequences of actually following through and taking action. She backed down in record time on that women’s sports issue.

      Even the so-called “hard conservatives” in the party do nothing but talk. Hell, look at all the sh/tty appointments and squandered opportunities from Trump himself. Sessions followed by Bill freaking Barr (a Bush retread, no less); Kavanaugh, Barrett, leaving Wray in there, etc.

  3. McConaughey has spent significant time in CA, so he’s picked up bad habits. He’ll NEVER get my vote, period. And yeah, Abbott’s a RINO so he needs to go as well.

  4. We are seeing the results of the left’s demand for unlimited immigration and forced relocation of illegal immigrants along with radical socialists moving into key politically strategic areas like Austin and other leftist havens.
