From power outages to infrastructure issues to the hospitals pushed to capacity thanks to COVID-19, Gov. Greg Abbott’s approval rating has taken a beating as polling from the Texas Politics Project finds 52% of respondents feel Texas is on the wrong track.
That’s the highest negative rating ever since TPP began asking the question in 2009.

From KXAN in Austin:
The poll shows Gov. Greg Abbott’s approval rating dropping. His job performance received 41% approval, with 50% saying they disapprove of the job he’s doing.
One polarizing issue highlighted by the poll is the divide over mask mandates. The poll shows 41% of Texans back Gov. Abbott’s ban on mask requirements, while 45% oppose his ban.

100%. I live in a Austin suburb where on my community FB page they encourage folks to get the Invermectin and hydroxychloroquine treatment vs vaccination… and the school district here leads the Austin area in % infected with COVID. It's a shit show.

Texas has not been going in the right direction since Governor @GregAbbott_TX banned mask and vaccine mandates, enacted a permitless gun carry law, and allowed for banning on abortions. I'm sorry, but Abbot is not fit for handling Texas in the right direction at this point.
