Alright alright alright. Properly what the fuck do we have now right here?
In line with a new ballot 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 p.c of respondents stated they would again the actor, whereas 33 p.c would vote for Abbott. Twenty-two p.c stated they would vote for anybody else.
“Anybody else” is normally a fairly in style alternative in at present’s political tradition for good cause. I assume 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 enthusiastic about tradition wars, like the MLB All-Star sport, than truly governing. However I positively didn’t have an Abbott-McConaughey-anyone else gubernatorial race on my 2022 bingo card. We’ll see if it truly 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 “can be a idiot to not” give it some thought. However he hasn’t declared… not less than not but.
Perhaps McConaughey is a symptom of the superstar politician period? Perhaps he already needs to get out of the MLS. Or possibly he has a private need 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 vital knowledge may skew McConaughey’s approval numbers.
What number of UT-Austin soccer supporters wish to see their superfan take the governor’s mansion? In all probability an entire lot. On the similar time, what number of school soccer followers across the state wish to see that actor anyplace however the Longhorn’s sidelines on Saturday afternoon? I’m positive fairly just a few would.
Perhaps there are Texas followers who truly like McConaughey, however at the moment are cautious about his involvement within the soccer program after years of “insert model identify” bowl appearances. Perhaps if Matthew McConaughey leaves the gridiron to turn into governor, UT soccer can begin profitable 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 truly add another job to his resume quickly sufficient.
