Poll Results: Texans in favor of gambling

January 08, 2011

Reports have shown that the State of Texas is facing a multimillion dollar debt. Some estimates report the debt to be around $20 billion. While many of the state lawmakers promise to not raise taxes, they will start looking at other ways to raise funds. Recently the Star-Telegram newspaper conducted a survey. Amongst other state issues, it showed in favor of gambling expansion to help with state budget issues.

819 people took the survey. Of those people, 45% were in favor. The support is for legalized casinos at racetracks that would operate slot machines. This would include Grand Prairie’s Lone Star Park. It would also allow for casinos in urban areas, such as the Metroplex.

Over all, the people polled reported that they were much more in favor of raising revenue for the state instead of budget cuts. Advocates for gambling tried and failed in 2009 to pass legislation to allow for gaming expansion. However with the new poll results, there is a new way for them to pass laws by helping raise money for the state.
