What the Polls Are Saying

Fritsch feels confident that Abbott's frontrunner status could easily slide. She says that local polls show that Abbott's name recognition isn't that great and that he would likely be in a run-off for the nomination. "And they show this party needs a candidate like me because he's vulnerable to Wendy Davis," Fritsch says.
