The prospects of dramatic cuts, seemingly impossible cuts, are knocking at the windows from outside.
The well-respected Southern Media and Opinion Research (SMOR) spring poll has just been released which focused upon legislative budgetary matters, the Governor's race, Common Core, President Obama, same sex marriage, Lt. Governor's race, TOPS and more.
Here are the results. Bayoubuzz will provide more detailed analysis shortly.
