Californians Speak: Gimme (Legal) Online Poker

Seems like Californians are for online poker.

If it would help bring more revenue for the cash-starved state.

The Field Poll (which I’ve never heard of, I must confess) released¬†one of the first public indications of voter sentiment on an issue that has consumed Capitol negotiations without producing a deal.

Fifty-three percent of registered voters want to license online poker and have the state tax its proceeds, and 41 percent oppose it, according to the survey.

Support for the idea is highest among younger voters, Democrats, independents and people who have played poker in a casino or card club.

So take that, legislators.
And guess what? If you surveyed people around the nation I suspect you’d come up with similar results.
