How do Texans feel about marijuana use? Immigration? Same-sex marriage? A new Texas Lyceum poll highlights Texans’ thoughts on a number of these hot-button issues.

That’s less of a lead than internal Abbott campaign polls recently showed, but a difficult gap for Davis to makeup with just five weeks until the November 4 election.
