Poll: Perry's ratings down after failed run

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - A new poll shows Texas Gov. Rick Perry's approval rating in his home state at a 10-year low and more than half of Texans don't want him to run for another term as governor.

The telephone survey of 806 Texans was paid for by a group of Texas' largest newspapers.

The poll shows 40% of Texans approve of the job he's doing as governor, a 10-point drop from a year ago. Another 40% said they disapprove of the job Perry's doing.

The poll found 53% said they don't want Perry to run for a fourth full term in 2014, and 45% said his failed campaign for president hurt Texas' image.

The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5%age points.
