Kentucky Gov. Steve Beshear Dec. 27 reaffirmed his efforts to push for a constitutional amendment on expanded gambling in 2012, citing results of a survey on the topic.
A statewide poll of 612 Kentucky voters was done by the Washington, D.C.-based firm of Garin-Hart-Yang Research Group Dec. 12-14. The survey was commissioned by “various Kentucky horse racing interests” and reported in a joint release from Churchill Downs and Keeneland, two Kentucky racetracks.

Officials said the survey has a margin of error of plus or minus four percentage points.
