Republican Greg Abbott is leading Democrat Wendy Davis 50 percent to 35 percent among voters in their 2014 contest for the Texas governorship, according to the latest voter survey from Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling.

Abbott has built his lead from Public Policy's June/July poll, in which Davis trailed just 48 to 40 percent. That poll was conducted during the week of her famous filibuster against a Republican-sponsored anti-abortion measure in the state Senate.

"As Davis has become better known to Texans, her negatives have risen," Public Policy said in a statement.

According to the latest Public Policy survey of 500 voters taken Nov. 1-4, 36 percent of respondents now have a favorable opinion of Davis, compared to 42 percent who have an unfavorable view. In June/July, it was 39 percent favorable and 29 percent unfavorable.

As for Abbott, he now has a 35 percent favorable rating and a 32 percent unfavorable rating.

In June/July, he was at 32 percent favorable and 26 percent unfavorable.
