Poll Indicates Texans Are Ready For More Gambling In The State

online casino gambling
The state of Texas is traditionally one of the most Conservative states in the United States, and that certainly holds true with the issue of gambling. For years, gambling proponents have been trying to expand gambling in the state, and for years, lawmakers have closed the door on the idea.

The times, however, are changing, and Texans appear to be changing as well. A recent poll indicated that a large percentage of Texans would be in favor of some form of gambling expansion. The potential voters are split on which type of expansion they would support.

The nonpartisan Texas Lyceum group conducted a poll at the end of September that offered questions on a variety of subjects. Among the questions that were asked were several dealing with gambling expansion. The results show just how far Texas residents have come on the gambling issue.

When asked whether they would support full scale casino gambling in Texas, 29 % of those surveyed said they would support such expansion. 21 % of the respondents claimed they would be in favor of expansion at already existing locations such as racetracks.
