Survey of 500 likely voters was conducted March 3-4, 2014. The margin of error is +/- 4.5 percentage points.

Inside the numbers:
Each candidate earns 91% support from voters in their respective party. Abbott leads 50% to 37% among unaffiliated voters.
Abbott posts double-digit leads over Davis in voter trust when it comes to government spending – 51% to 33% - and taxes – 52% to 33%. The Republican is ahead by nine – 46% to 37% - in the area of government ethics and corruption.
Davis, who made her mark in the state with a filibuster last year against anti-abortion legislation, trails by just six – 48% to 42% - when voters are asked whom they trust more on social issues.
Both candidates are well-known in the state, but Davis, at this early juncture, is viewed Very Unfavorably by 34% of the state’s voters, compared to just 17% who feel that way about Abbott. Thirty-four percent (34%) have a Very Favorable opinion of the GOP candidate, while 22% view Davis Very Favorably.
