Republican Tom DeLay trails a Democratic challenger for his seat in the House and is viewed favorably by only 28% of those people questioned in a poll of his Houston-area congressional district, the Houston Chronicle reported.
The survey found 30% favored former U.S. Rep. Nick Lampson, a Democrat, compared with 22% for DeLay, who has represented the district for 22 years. The two are expected to square off in the November election.
However, DeLay must first defeat three opponents in the Republican primary in March.
