Craig James for Senate: To Know Him Is to Not Like Him, Polls Say
(Don't) get to know me!!!
A new poll for Texas's open U.S. Senate seat has bad news for Houston's Craig James, former SMU star and ESPN analyst.
Most people don't know the guy. Those that do, don't like him.
James had the biggest gap between "favorable" and "unfavorable" ratings, a whopping 15 percent.
Two-thirds of those polled by Public Policy Polling had no opinion on James, but 24 percent had an "unfavorable" opinion of him, with just nine percent "favorable."

In other news, 24 percent of the people polled watch ESPN and nine percent do not, we're guessing.
Good news for James, though: In the highly unlikely event he wins the GOP nod, he's favored over any of the Democratic candidates.
