Exclusive Survey Show Voters Want Casinos - Friday 16th of December 2005

KANSAS As reported by KWCH Eyewitness News: "Voters in three Kansas counties will soon know whether they want a destination casino. But our exclusive scientific survey shows there's overwhelming support.

"Here's how the polling numbers break down. In Harvey County, 58 percent of registered voters say they would support a destination casino. In Marion County, support is at 55 percent. But the biggest support may be south of Wichita in Sumner County. There, 67 percent of voters say they would support a casino in their county.

"But state lawmakers would still need to approve expanded gambling in order to allow casinos in. Counties hope showing support for gaming will influence lawmakers when they return to Topeka in January for the start of the legislative session.

"Casino backers are pleased by the polling numbers..."
