Vanderbilt University to release latest results of Tennessee poll on Wednesday


NASHVILLE, Tennessee — Vanderbilt University is scheduled to release the latest findings of its twice yearly public opinion poll in Tennessee on Wednesday.

The survey of 1,000 registered voters includes questions on Gov. Bill Haslam's failed proposal to extend health coverage to 280,000 low-income Tennesseans, abortion, same-sex marriage and marijuana policy.

It also gauges the popularity of various political leaders in Tennessee.

The poll is conducted just before the start of the legislative session and again after it ends. The goal is to see how closely the results of the legislative session match voters' expectations and priorities.

In the last poll in November, more than half of respondents supported expanding Medicaid in Tennessee, but state lawmakers in this year's session twice rejected Haslam's proposals to do so.
