Dallas, TX – Texas Republicans surveyed in a new poll don't seem to be buying Gov. Rick Perry's campaign claim that his policies are responsible for Texas' job-creating economy.

In the University of Texas- Texas Tribune poll, some 65 percent said Texas's natural resources and policies are the reason the state's economy has outperformed others. Just 21 percent of Republican voters credited Rick Perry's leadership.

KERA has also been talking to voters about Gov. Perry's presidential campaign. We partnered with the Harwood Institute to conduct a focus group with likely North Texas voters.

KERA's Shelley Kofler has more about what we heard from a diverse panel of twelve.
