Poll: Locals Supports Massachusetts Casino - Sunday 29th of January 2006

MASSACHUSETTS – As reported by the South Coast Today: " More than half of South Coast residents responding to a recent UMass Dartmouth telephone poll said they favor bringing a resort-style casino to the southeastern part of the state.

"Approximately 57 percent of the 478 people surveyed said 'yes' when asked, 'In your opinion, should the Massachusetts state Legislature authorize a resort casino in Southeastern Massachusetts?' Twenty-seven percent of those asked were opposed, with 16 percent undecided.

"…The survey was conducted by the Center for Policy Analysis at UMass Dartmouth, and was paid for by the university.

"…As the state Legislature considers a bill that would allow casino gambling, the survey's purpose was to gauge support for such a move, and see if anything had changed from the mid-1990s, when voters expressed strong support for casino gambling…"
