Former Houston Mayor Bill White has said it won't be easy to beat a Republican for the Texas governorship. The latest Rasmussen numbers prove it. He's trailing both Gov. Rick Perry and U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison by double-digits.

Perry leads White 50% to 40% among likely Texas voters. Six percent are undecided.

Hutchison runs significantly stronger against White. Hutchison leads White by 15 points, 52% to 37%. In that matchup, eight percent aren’t sure whom they’ll vote for.

Republican secessionist candidate Debra Medina would lose to White in a one-on-one general election match-up, according to the survey. White posts a six-point lead over Medina, 44% to 38%.

The full Rasmussen report is available online.
