Alright alright alright. Nicely what the fuck do we’ve right here?
In response to a new poll from the Dallas Morning Information and the College of Texas at Tyler, actor, Austin FC minority proprietor, and Texas Longhorns superfan, Matthew McConaughey has a double-digit lead over present Texas Gov. Greg Abbott in a possible 2022 race.
The hypothetical matchup was posed within the ballot, the place 45 % of respondents mentioned they would again the actor, whereas 33 % would vote for Abbott. Twenty-two % mentioned they would vote for anybody else.
“Anybody else” is often a reasonably widespread alternative in right this moment’s political tradition for good motive. I suppose I, too, would take anybody else if I lived within the lone star state and had to decide on between another person and the incumbent governor who appears extra excited about tradition wars, like the MLB All-Star game, than really governing. However I positively didn’t have an Abbott-McConaughey-anyone else gubernatorial race on my 2022 bingo card. We’ll see if it really occurs. It’s as much as y’all, Texas
We already know that McConaughey is contemplating a run. He went as far as to say he “could be a idiot to not” give it some thought. However he hasn’t declared… at the least not but.
Perhaps McConaughey is a symptom of the movie star politician period? Perhaps he already desires to get out of the MLS. Or perhaps he has a private want to increase his e-book deal? I don’t have all of the solutions, people.
However I do have one query. Simply what number of Longhorn followers have been part of this survey? The ballot received’t say. So what are they hiding!?! That essential knowledge may skew McConaughey’s approval numbers.
What number of UT-Austin soccer supporters wish to see their superfan take the governor’s mansion? Most likely a complete lot. On the similar time, what number of faculty soccer followers across the state wish to see that actor wherever however the Longhorn’s sidelines on Saturday afternoon? I’m positive fairly just a few would.
Perhaps there are Texas followers who really like McConaughey, however are actually cautious about his involvement within the soccer program after years of “insert model title” bowl appearances. Perhaps if Matthew McConaughey leaves the gridiron to develop into governor, UT soccer can begin successful championships once more? I don’t know, superstitions can lead sports activities followers to do loopy issues.
We’ll see if the actor, writer, workforce minority proprietor, and superfan will really add yet another job to his resume quickly sufficient.
