Poll shows Texans prefer gambling, pot tax to state income

TYLER, TX - The Texas Lyceam's fourth annual independent poll shows most Texans prefer gleaning taxes from legalized gambilng and alcohol rather than imposing an income tax or a bigger state sales tax.

The survey from the nonpartisan group also revealed most voters would opt for legalizing and taxing marijuana sales, as a third choice to higher taxation. Voters were given a list of eight options in the statewide poll, conducted September 22 - 30. The choices were part of a question that dealt with a way to pay for Texas' looming budget deficit, estimated at $18 billion.
