Former ESPN Analyst Craig James Struggling In Texas Primary Polls
Former ESPN Analyst turned Texas Senate hopeful, Craig James, is polling at just four percent of the vote in the state’s Republican primary, according to the Houston Chronicle.
The Chronicle pulls their number from a survey produced by Public Policy Polling. The poll also found that just 30 percent of Texas voters were able to identify who James is. Among those who did identify him, just 11 percent have a positive view of the former SMU star.
29 percent of those polled from his alma mater had a negative view of James, while 23 percent viewed him positively. Alternatively, those who were polled at Texas Tech, where James was believed to have been a partial cause for the firing of former head coach Mike Leach, viewed James negatively 26 percent of the time.
James announced his intention to leave his position as a college football analyst at ESPN in mid-December.
