Texas - Only 9% of likely Republican Texas voters would reportedly choose Governor Rick Perry for president.

That's according to a new Texas Lyceum poll.

The results also show 54% of likely Texas voters believe Perry is doing a good job leading the state.

But most support for Republican presidential hopefuls went to Mitt Romney.

Sarah Palin was close behind with 14%.

Approval ratings for the Texas Legislature slipped to 49%, compared to 61% last year.
