We’ve heard before that the majority of New Jersey residents are in favor of sports betting, but that’s a more gambling-centric culture that doesn’t reflect the collective view of the American people, right?
Wrong. A new poll found that, for the first time ever, Americans are in favor of widespread legalization of online sports gambling.
Well, it’s official. Enough with the posturing and the lobbying and the debating and the court cases. The people have spoken—814 of them, to be exact—and the majority, albeit a very, very small majority, want sports betting to be legalized.
Not just in the state of Nevada, where it’s currently legal, and not just in the state of New Jersey, which is trying to make it legal. No, these people want sports betting everywhere. Isn’t it about time we give the people what they want?
