BizPulse: Readers vote Debra Medina (http://news.moneycentral.msn.com/provider/providerarticle.aspx?feed=ACBJ&date=20100215&id=11118488)

More Austin Business Journal readers said they would vote for Republican gubernatorial candidate Debra Medina than incumbent Gov. Rick Perry last week.

The most recent BusinessPulse Survey asked readers if the primary election were today, who would win their vote. Out of the 1,582 that answered, 31 percent picked Tea Party favorite Medina compared with 26 percent choosing Perry. About 20 percent backed Houston Democratic mayor Bill White and 14 percent chose Republican U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison.

Just 4 percent picked Democratic primary challenger and Houston businessman Farouk Shami, the same number that answered no one.

The poll counters a recent newspapers-commissioned phone survey that shows 45 percent of likely Republican primary voters will choose Perry, 29 percent would vote for U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison and 17 percent back Medina. About 8 percent polled between Feb. 2-10 answered undecided.

That poll included 1,508 registered voters and 464 likely GOP primary voters.

The BusinessPulse Survey is a non-scientific poll of ABJ readers.

Good ammo from a major media entity. This should be spread far and wide.

Of course business owners will be skewed in favor of libertarians. They see the benefits immediately. It's the union-worker drones that are the problem.

Well, not all business owners are inclined toward the benefits of the free market. In the age of progressive-corporatism, bigger business is a staunch advocate of the highly centralized and strictly regulated economic apparatus.

And like Shami, they want a flow of cheap labor.
