Matthew McConaughey speaks during "One World: Together At Home" presented by Global Citizen on April, 18, 2020.

If Matthew McConaughey wants to run for Texas governor, it looks like he’d be a frontrunner.

Texas Republican Governor Greg Abbott is polling behind the actor in a hypothetical matchup. The survey from “The Dallas Morning News” and the University of Texas at Tyler shows McConaughey with a nine-point lead over Abbott.

That’s despite the actor so far only entertaining the idea of running and it’s not clear what party he would represent. Abbott’s approval rating has dropped to 45-percent after signing legislation like a ban on mask mandates and a ban on most abortions after six weeks.
