Just under half — 48% — of Texas voters favor incumbent Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, over Democrat Beto O’Rourke, who is supported by 43%, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll.

Results of the poll, released Wednesday:

  • 46% say they have a favorable opinion of Abbott; 45% say they view him unfavorably.
  • 38% say they have a favorable opinion of O’Rourke; 43% say they view him unfavorably.
  • 53% say Abbott would do a better job handling the situation at the southern border; 38% say O’Rourke would.
  • 44% say O’Rourke would do a better job handling the abortion issue in Texas; 42% say Abbott would.
  • 90% of Republican voters say they favor Abbott; 5% say they support O’Rourke.
  • 96% of Democrats say they support O’Rourke; 2% favor Abbott.
  • 46% of independents say they favor Abbott; 40% support O’Rourke.
