Every two years, a pro-gambling group polls Texans on whether or not they would support the opportunity to consider a constitutional amendment to allow gambling in Texas. Every two years the poll shows, usually by a wide margin, that Texans would love to decide the issue. Every two years the gambling lobby releases the poll and every two years everyone, well, ignores it.
As for the probability of a proposed amendment getting out of the Lege, I would place it at somewhere between 3-4%, maybe a little more IF they don’t find new revenue for schools.
Just for the record, we totally support gambling. We at McBlogger are big fans.
