it's old, we know, but we just started: dewhurst leads all

yes, we know, it's an old poll - a lot can happen in three months but here is a poll by the Houston Chronicle:

Dewhurst 31%
Chet Edwards 24% - see our note below on Democrats
John Sharp 20% - see below
Michael Williams 11%
Elizabeth Ames Jones - 8%
Roger Williams 4%
Tom Leppert 1%

Analysis: forget the Democrats, Bill White proved a Dem will not win a statewide race in Texas for some time. He had the DNC, DGA, Move On, Etc. on his side and he couldn't beat a thought-to-be vulnerable Rick Perry.  We don't think EAJ will be a serious candidate either. Just two bits here.
