    Poll: Texans don't give Rick Perry credit for economy

    A strong majority of Texas voters don't give Rick Perry credit for boosting the state's economy, according to a new poll that will likely catch the eye of his GOP presidential rivals.

    The poll by the University of Texas-Texas Tribune found that 65% of respondents said long-standing policies in the state -- such as having no state income tax -- and the abundance of natural resources are the main reasons the Texan economy has outperformed the rest of the nation.

    Another 21% say Perry's leadership deserves credit and 14% say they don't know
