HOUSTON — Election Day in Texas is rapidly approaching and most up-to-date polling reveals Gov. Greg Abbott hanging on to a 7-point lead over Democratic challenger Beto O’Rourke. 

At Houston’s iconic Three Brother’s Bakery, they’re conducting a poll of their very own by means of cookie gross sales.

“It’s a lot of fun for us to do this,” Bobby Jucker stated. “We decided to start it a little earlier.”

On the menu now’s a alternative between Abbott and O’Rourke. Your poll is a tasty cookie. 

“We have customers coming from the left, from the right and in between,” Jucker stated. “If you want to come in and get Abbott cookies, great. If you want to come in and get Beto cookies, great. And if you want Gingy cookies, that’s great too, come on in.”

Three Brothers’ well-known cookie poll has a monitor file of success. In 2016, it predicted a Trump victory. Four years later, the poll referred to as a Biden win. And now, for the primary time, they’re making an attempt the race for Texas governor.
