Lyceum poll: More than one third of Texans have known someone addicted to prescription painkillers

Pollsters did a deep dive on health care: Only 6 percent trust the feds “a great deal” on the issue; the vast majority agree with mandatory vaccine laws

As part of a broader survey on health care issues in this state, the Texas Lyceum Poll this year finds “more than one third of Texans (36 percent) say that they have known someone addicted to prescription painkillers.”

The results of the poll, released over two days with tomorrow’s numbers focusing on statewide races like US Senate and governor, came from telephone conversations in the field from July 9 to 26. The survey of more than 1,100 Texans has a margin of error of +/- 2.86, per the pollsters at the University of Texas at Austin.

The poll focused on the opioid crisis, the federal government’s handling of health care issues, the benefits of vaccines, and more. This is the twelfth annual Texas Lyceum Poll.
