Undecided amount sucks, but the margin seems accurate.  Indy is a little big, but Rasmussen had a 6% Indy as of June.

When your major candidates only add up to 76%, it's a red flag re: leaners and/or surveyors, especially in a uni poll.

I'd say McCain wins Texas by something like 56 - 43.  He'll run roughly 5 pts lower than Bush in 2004.

Dodgy Poll.

Any poll with 17 percent Undecided, with less than three months before Election Day is easily considered a dodgy poll. Not to mention, I doubt Barack Obama will get within 10 points of John McCain in Texas this year. Maybe if he is extremely lucky but I highly, highly doubt it.

Poor Texas, behind even John McCain. Must be hurting their pride.
