(Texas needs revenue, and many are eyeing legalized gambling as a way to help provide it. What are your thoughts?   - promoted by Katherine Haenschen)

Texas sure has been a good neighbor in recent years to Louisiana, Oklahoma and our other neighbor states, helping them build roads, support their schools, and create jobs with our hard-earned dollars.

Texans are spending $2.5 billion every year at casinos and entertainment venues in Oklahoma, Louisiana, and New Mexico alone.




Wouldn't that money be put to better use at home in Texas?

Poll: Casino Gambling

(i love polls - promoted by Matt Glazer)

With Rodney Ellis and John Carona filing legislation to bring casinos to the Lone Star state, I thought I would poll voters to see how they felt about the subject. First, I asked likely voters what they thought about bringing casinos to Texas. Then I asked a followup question based on their initial response.

If they were in favor, I listed some of the opponents' arguments. If they were opposed, I listed some of the supporters' arguments. If they were undecided, I listed both the pro and con arguments. Then I asked if any opinions had changed. Only a couple of percent switched sides completely, but there was a strong shift to 'Undecided.' It would appear that a heavy PR campaign could shift this either way.

Questions and details after the jump.
