On Tuesday’s Houston Matters: A new poll finds Democrats and Republicans in Texas are sharply divided over, well, pretty much everything. No surprise there. But independents in the Lone Star State are starting to sing a slightly different tune – and that may surprise you. We examine the findings from a new poll on voter attitudes from the University of Texas and the Texas Tribune.

Also this hour: Rachel Laser, the president and CEO of Americans United for Separation of Church and State discusses her organization’s efforts to protect Constitutionally mandated religious freedom.

Then, Houston has seen some high-profile restaurant closures so far this year. So, we discuss why that occurs and what successful Houston restaurants do.

And a downtown Houston hotel is getting a face lift and a new name inspired by the city’s largely unsung founder, Charlotte Baldwin Allen.
