FARMERS BRANCH, Texas (2/18/08)--Texas Democrats and Republicans hold favorable views of credit unions by a wide margin, according to the Texas Credit Union League (TCUL) Poll of Texas Primary Voters. Roughly half of Democrats (52%) and Republicans (47%) belong to credit unions, the poll indicated (PR Newswire Feb. 15). Also, most Democratic (83%) and Republican (80%) voters support the Texas State legislature in considering the passage of a new law that would crack down on identity theft and fraud. The TCUL commissions primary and general election voter surveys every two years on politics and key issues for credit unions. The poll also indicates that Hillary Clinton leads Barack Obama in the Texas Democratic primary contest, 49% to 41%. In the Texas Republican primary race, John McCain (45%) and Mike Huckabee (41%) are locked in a statistical tie, with Ron Paul trailing at 6%. For more poll results, use the link.
