FRESH STUDY ON NEW JERSEY GAMBLING REFERENDUM
20th October, 2011 at 02:13:26
58% would vote for legalised sports betting
In New Jersey, a fresh study released Wednesday by Rutgers-Eagleton Poll has shown that 58% of the state's voters are likely to put their mark for legal sports betting in the state in the upcoming November 8 ballot (see previous reports).
There were 903 respondents in the poll
"If the election were today, an amendment to the New Jersey Constitution allowing gambling on sporting events in Atlantic City casinos and at race tracks throughout the state would easily win approval, a statement from Rutgers-Eagleton observes.
"According to a new Rutgers-Eagleton Poll, betting on sports events, which will be on the November 8 general election ballot, is supported by 58% of likely voters, while only 31% oppose."
Among Republicans support is even higher, at 64 percent, while 58% of Democrats and 54% of independents also favor the measure.
