Despite states being allowed to pursue their own online gambling business on their own terms, only about a quarter of Americans are happy with that, according to a poll from Fairleigh Dickinson University.
The online gambling question was simple: “Do you favor or oppose allowing states to run betting games online, over the Internet?”
Twenty-seven percent of respondents were in favor of online betting, while 60% opposed the activity. 5% responded with “neither”, while 7% were “unsure”.
The poll also had results based on age groups, political affiliation, gender and so on.
Interestingly, half of those who said they had been to a brick-and-mortar casino within the past year are opposed to the games existing on the Internet.
The poll consisted of 814 registered voters and was conducted nationally by telephone — both landline and cell phones — earlier this month.
