A new poll may put some wind in the actor Matthew McConaughey’s sails as he considers whether to run for governor of Texas.
Forty-five percent of the state’s voters said that they would vote for Mr. McConaughey if he were to challenge Gov. Greg Abbott next year, according to the poll, conducted by The Dallas Morning News and the University of Texas, Tyler.
An additional 33 percent of voters said they would support the incumbent.
The actor has repeatedly flirted with running for governor, though he has not said whether he would run as a Republican or a Democrat.

put wind in someone’s sails：慣用語，給某人的帆加一陣風，意指讓某人有信心去做某事，助某人一臂之力。反面用法為take the wind out of someone’s sails，（通常是藉由做些出乎意料的事來）讓某人更沒信心或更無法堅定意志去做某事。例句：It took the wind out of her sails to learn that her internet romance was a scam.（她發現她的網戀是一場騙局後大為洩氣。）
