NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Vanderbilt University is releasing its latest poll of Tennesseans on topics including gun rights, education and health care.
The results of the survey of 800 randomly selected voters are scheduled to be released on Wednesday morning.
Vanderbilt conducts the poll twice a year - once before the state Legislature convenes and once after lawmakers adjourn. The survey aims to gauge how closely the results of the session align with voter attitudes and priorities.
The poll supported by the school's Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions was conducted in late November and early December.
The last version of the poll in May found that 60 percent preferred an expansion of Medicaid under President Barack Obama's health care law. Gov. Bill Haslam has been unable to strike a deal on expansion.
